I had wi-fi connection ok to receive emails and internet access at my home using broadband connection to my house until early January this year, 2013, but since then I was charged 99c per day for any usage - in my own home with broadband. Vodafone cannot tell me why - I've tried them 3 times at this stage. I have googled the support on Blackberry site and the help instruction tells me that with the wi-fi on "white" means that "Your connection to the Wi-Fi network is turned on, but your device does not have access to Blackberry services over a Wi-Fi connection."
I don't understand as it was ok up to Christmas since March 2012 when I got the phone?????

Your mobile service provider is 100% responsible for all billing, services, and formal support for your BB...BlackBerry charges nothing direct to an end user...the carrier is in control.
But, with a strong carrier network signal (e.g., not WiFi), I suggest the following steps, in order, even if they seem redundant to what you have already tried (steps 1 and 2 each should result in a message coming to your BB...please wait for that before proceeding to the next step):
1) Register HRT
2) Resend Service Books
3) Batt Pull Reboot
Now see if your WiFi connects properly. You should also consider removing the WiFi configuration from your BB, adn re-configuring it brand new.
In a very few rare cases, some carriers restrict access to BB-proprietary services via WiFi, and require only teh use of their carrier data network for such access. I have no idea if yours is one of those or not...but they should be able to at least tell you if what you are attempting is proper or not.

Thank you for reply to my query on Wi-Fi connection to my Blackberry Curve 8520. The link you sent gives instructions for a Blackberry 10 and the instructions don't seem to apply to my phone, for instance 1. Tap on settings, 2. Tap on about ??? I am not very technical I know so maybe i need step by step please. Thanks again, Detta.

As I did not receive any message I will have to contact Vodafone - but I have been in contact with them 3 times over this already and they each told me something different which did not help.... I'll try again telling them about this and hope for the best.
