Did you sign an agreement for WI-Fi access only;y with your provider?
If so have you activated the device and gotten the correct service books?
I thought I had included this link in my first post, sorry.
KB13368 Services over a Wi-Fi connection
Out of the box, if supported by the wireless service provider as noted above, the following services will be available for Wi-Fi enabled BlackBerry smartphones. These phones will not have a wireless service provider data plan activated with them, leaving the following Wi-Fi services available after they are sold:
* Direct Wi-Fi Browsing will allow the user to use the BlackBerry Wi-Fi browser to browse to web sites.
** Direct Wi-Fi connectivity to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server will allow the user to activate via OTA (Over The Air) Enterprise Activation over Wi-Fi (known as WLAN Activation), as well as perform a cradled activation and then communicate with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server over Wi-Fi.
The chart below outlines the services that are available to the Wi-Fi enabled BlackBerry smartphone user with a qualifying data plan:
Note: The chart above assumes that the BlackBerry user has a qualifying plan with the wireless service provider, and has registered with the wireless network to obtain the necessary service books for the associated services to be used. For more information on the minimum requirements for BlackBerry App World storefront, please see KB17659.
In BlackBerry® 6 and 7 software a connection to the BlackBerry® network over Wi-Fi can easily be identified with the BlackBerry® dots showing along side the Wi-Fi symbol.
