It might be the 'hotspot browser' that does something to it, as it's saying UMA now and doesn't seem to be changing...
(oops no, just ran Twitter app and it's gone back to uma)
Does anyone know what the problem is? I don't usually have wifi on, only to download programs, so it's not generally a big deal.
Did you just upgrade to 188.8.131.52? I just did and also note that the BB Browser no longer seems to work with WiFi. The Browser configuration now has something called 'Hotspot Browser' (old version used to have something called 'WiFi Browser). WiFi does seem to work with other apps (ex. Opera) but I can't get it to work with the BB Browser - always fails.
