Just bought my first Blackberry and all of this is completely new to me. I'm with T-mobile and don't want to buy the data plan. They have the service "web2go" when I try to open my browser. I can access ESPN and Accuweather there. Talked with T-mobile this morning and they told me I'd be charged $15 per MB when using this without a data plan.
Anyway my main problem is that I want to be able to use wi-fi at home and in public locations (like McDonalds, hotels, etc) when I need it.
I set up my wi-fi connection here at home. When I go to MANAGE CONNECTIONS it shows the WI-FI box with a check and HOME in green with a green check mark to the side.
When I go to SERVICES STATUS and scroll down to WI-FI NETWORK it has a red circle and two red rectangular boxes beside it. ACTIVE PROFILE: HOME, SSID: 2WIRE690 (which is my router).
Under WI-FI CONNECTIONS I have ACTIVE WI-FI CONNECTION: HOME
WI-FI SELECTION MODE: AUTOMATIC
SAVED WI-FI PROFILES
HOME (with a green check mard and a signal icon).
I have the wi-fi icon in black white on my home screen. uma is listed above it with a red circle and two rectangular bars.
So onto my problem....
When I go to BROWSER, it takes me to web2go. I try to type something in the GOOGLE bar at the top and it tells me "SUBSCRIPTION REQUIRED".
What do I need to do????
