I had used this successfully in the past with my 8900 in OS 5. Any help in helping me overcome this will be much appreciated.
For your information I have had the same problem. I only noticed it today. The BIS and BES never connect over WiFi and insist on connecting only via the roaming carrier. Like you I am travelling and am presently in the Caribbean where Mobile networks are both useless and expensive.
Quite without any prompt from me a friend in Germany wrote to me this afternoon and asked me exactly the same thing as he has noticed his Bold 2 doing the same thing over there.
As I say, I don't know how long mine has been like this but it cannot be for more than a day I would say.
Is there some BB network status page one can go check up what might be afoot with the network? Any others got any comments to make about what this might be?
