Hello, I am a brand new convert over to BB's and just purchased an 8820 and have been reading through threads for the last 2 days and have not been able to resolve my issue.
First, let me tell you that I have upgraded to the latest 8820 software (126.96.36.1998), I have gone into the "Advanced Options" and changed the "Default Browser Configuration" to "Wifi Browser", I have opened the browser that comes with the BB and gone into the options and changed the "Browser Configuration" to "Wifi Browser", I have also downloaded Opera and changed the same settings.
I have configured my BB to connect to my home network and everything is working correctly, when I go into the "Manage Connections" area, both the "Mobile Network" and "Wi-Fi" connections have a green check mark next to them. When I use the browser or Opera, or connect with Facebook, and use the EDGE network, everything works great...But when I turn off the "Mobile Network" in the "Manage Connections" area and attempt to use the BB browser it tells me that "The radio on the device is currently turned off or the battery is too low for the radio to be used. As a result the browser cannot retrieve any web pages." But this shouldnt be the case because the Wi-Fi connection is still running and has the green checkmark. I get different errors when trying to use Opera or Facebook, but needless to say they wont connect.
Any ideas that the community would be much appreciated!!
