WiFi won't turn on

I had set up my home network on wifi and was using wifi, but for the past several weeks I haven't been able to use WiFi.  When I tell it to turn on and scan for networks I get an error message telling me that the BBy is unable to turn WiFi on.  I can't figure out how to fix this issue.

 

Solution anyone?

Re: WiFi won't turn on

Try to set up your WIFI network on you device again , delete the old setting and go to --> SETUP ---> SET UP Wi-Fi and the wizard well do it for you again but be sure that you delete the old setting first .

Re: WiFi won't turn on

Thanks, but that didn't work.  I still can't turn on the WiFi.  As a part f the set up process I need to find the network and to do that it needs to turn the WiFi on, but it can't do that so i can't connect or complete the set up process.

 

other thoughts?

Re: WiFi won't turn on

I had the same problem.  It's as if the OS failed to initialize the WiFi radio.  The WiFi check box went grey, then went blank after turning it on.

 

I popped the batter and restarted.  The problem went away.

Re: WiFi won't turn on

Hi,

 

I have the same problem. My BB Bold 9000 WIFI cannot be turned on. Do you have the solution?

 

I should point out that after using AT&T prepaid 3G data service for 3 days, WIFI did work, and thereafter, WIFI cannot be turned on no matter how hard I tried with all the WIFI settings. I hope that you have the solution to share with me. Thanks

 

Thanks.

Re: WiFi won't turn on

Is that a joke?  The odds of a response from RIM are worse than winning the lottery.
