I got a brand new blackberry curve 8520 about a month ago from carphone warehouse & when i got home i connected to my sky router to connect the wifi but for some reason it wouldnt turn on on my phone (i entered all the passwords from the sky router etc..). I went back to carphone warehouse and they took it in for repairs. On saturday i recieved another new phone and i topped up my giffgaff simcard with enough credit for texts, calls, internet & blackberry messenger & when i got home i once again tried to connect my wifi, it connected but just wouldnt turn on! I have had a look at solutions to my query on other sites including giffgaff and we're all stuck as to why the wifi on my blackberry will not connect. I have tried battery pull & connecting to other wifi's & a few other theorys & nothing seems to help! Also, I cannot download blackberry app world on to my blackberry, it says there is an error when trying to download, I heard this can be because the download is to big for my internet on the sim card but without being connected to wifi! I have asked giffgaff to try and resolve my problem & will update this post as to what they say but anything anyone has to offer will be appriciated! thanks...

Could you please try connecting to a different router, such as an open free hotpost like a McDondalds or Starbucks, just to confirm if this WiFi issue is related only to your router?

Hi, I tried to connect to 'the cloud' which is a free open hotspot in a shopping centre near me & it does connect but wont work because it wont turn on! i hope that makes sense! thanks

OK, you keep saying it connects, but won't turn on.
What do you mean? How do you know it is connected?
And not turned on? Can you please explain those?

on the normal screen in the top right corner where the signal bar is the wifi symbol is underneath it, if u turn the wifi on when connected it shud light up to a white colour, although the wifi has successfully connected with my router the wifi on my phone will not turn on and the wifi symbol is a blank grey colour because of this! also if you go to manage connections there is a tick next to my mobile connection to say that my network connection is connected but when u look at wifi there is a '-' symbol, if it was off there would be a 'x' symbol! I hope this makes sense! thanks..

Sorry, you are confused about the meaning of the fully bright white and faded grey WiFi logos on the homescreen, as well as the dash "-" and such on the Manage Connections. Screen.

Seems your BIS account is not connected to this BlackBerry device. Call GiffGaff and get it moved.
