Can't access web anymore over WiFi ?!?

I have a Pearl flip 8220.  I've been pretty happy with it.  I do not have the data plan (I'm on T-Mobile), but I've been able to access the internet over my WiFi from home.  I have the WiFi calling plan.  Recently, I did a firmware upgrade (to v4.6.0.180, Platform 4.1.0.61).

 

Also recently, (and maybe or maybe not unrelated to the firmware upgrade), I realized that I can no longer get to all of the web sites I used to be able to get to.  Curiously, I can still get to some of them.  But most sites end up redirecting back to a T-Mobile page that tries to sell me the data plan.  What gives?  Can I reset it back to the way it was?

On your device, go to Options > Advanced > Browser and check that your browser is set to "HotSpot".

 

Is it?

No, it wasn't.  It is now, and that seems to have fixed the problem.

 

Thank you!
