Re: Blackberry Curve-8520 Wifi not working.

Hello please read my earlier post you need to go into managing connections, set up wifi network, select push button setup and follow that through- you need to be near your router as you will have to press the button with the arrows or the main on/off button - Your phone will then try to find it and will notify you when it finds/locates your router- It's has easy as that - All the best!

Re: Blackberry Curve-8520 Wifi not working.

I was struggling with my BB curve for ages regarding the wifi. My countries mobile operators do not sell the model or support (I can call n stuff even gprs works fine surprisingly) it much so I got rather frustrated. However I got help from a video on youtube...hopefully someone else also gets help from it.

Re: Blackberry Curve-8520 Wifi not working.

Got the same problem with the user above. WiFi icon on the upper right corner of the screen (below the signal bar) is dim then to the left is EDGE. At the center top it shows [name of mobile provider - wifi router name]. I don't see any green check, only a dash. I have rebooted the phone twice but it's still the same.

 

When I try to open the BB Homepage, it gives me this:

 

Unable to connect to the Internet, please try again later.

If the problem persists please contact your service provider.

 

When I go to Options > Browser Configuration, my browser is set to Hotspot Browser and browser identification to Internet Explorer

 

Do we have an option to change to another browser?

Hope all the info I've given helps. I just bought this unit like 5 hours ago before the shopping malls closed.
