Just WiFi

I have a Bold9700 that currently has no SIM card in it. If it's possible I'd like to be able to use this to get to the Internet via a WiFi connection.


I've successfully connected to the WiFi hotspot and switched the browser to the Hotspot Brower but I can't get anywhere except an error stating "Unable to connect to the Internet, please try again later".


Have I missed one or more steps or are the more options I need to set before it will work on pure WiFi or does it just not work full stop in this way?

Re: Just WiFi

Some carriers restrict their devices so they don't work on wifi alone.  Lame but true.  What brand of 9700 is it?
