Unhappy No WiFi with de-commissioned Bold

Please Login to Remove!

I decommissioned my Bold 9000 from AT&T about a year ago because my business partner insisted on another platform. I still love the Bold and would like to use the WiFi feature even though there is no active voice/data plan. I was able to connect to the hotspot, but the browser does not render. Every url request returns:

"You are attempting to open a secure conection, but the server's certificate has expired."

In Manage Connections, the Mobile Network is unchecked and the Wi-Fi is checked and the hotspot name shows in green. On the front panel, Wi-Fi is illuminate in black/white.

Will I be able to use WiFi now with this unconneced device? Something I'm missing?

Many thanks in advance.

AT&T requires that you have an active BB dataplan on your account before they will ship the WiFi service book.

Thanks Dubdub, but not sure I follow. I don't know what a Wifi service book is.

My BB Bold was originally provisioned on ATT with all-you-can-eat voice and data and was used for all voice and email communications and web browsing for many months. Since switching platforms, of course, this device has been dormant. I just want to use it randomly for WiFi without another account activation. Is this possible?

Nope. No BB dataplan, no service books, no WiFi, no email, no BBM, etc.

Because you had a voice and dataplan with AT&T previously, everything worked. Now with no SIM, no voice and no BB data, to don't have much of anything.

For more info on service books, read here: Blackberry service books
