Default Unable to access the internet in my device wifi

Please Login to Remove!

I am developer ,i want to know bit and pieces of using blackberry devices.

Do i need a dataplan to access Wifi hot spot browser?

In device such as storm(9520) i installed 5.0 OS ,and i connected easily without dataplan ,via wifi.

But that was not the case happening for curve 9300,it requires SIM with BB data plan to access the data via wifi.

Is there any work around for this,to access the Wifi without using SIM in 9300 device,Do i need to make settings modifications?

Similarly i have 9670 device which is an us device of verizon carrier,I got this for testing in india,how could i use it,(unlock it)


Initially 9670 was working with wifi,after installing some app,I was not able to make a network connectivity after it using wifi,

How to unlock it,In India,i have blackberrry CDMA service which of reliance network,Is there any opportunity ?

Regards

I think it depends on whether or not you have the wifi service books on your device. When I first got my BB, I didn't have any data plan, but was able to browse the internet via wifi.

Older OSes didn't need servicebooks to enable WiFi browsing and devices with those OSes could use WiFi without a data plan for browsing the web. But the system was complicated and difficult for some people who were paying for BlackBerry data plans to understand. So RIM evolved the way a network transport is selected. Staring IIRC in 4.6 until by 6.0 it is fully automatic and you need the support of the RIM operations centre, servicebooks (which only come from cariers) and a BlackBerry data plan for it to work.
