Re: switch on wifi

Hello,

 

Changing WiFi set is not currently support in the Android Runtime for PlayBook and BlackBerry 10. This is why you are seeing the difference between an Android device and the BlackBerry PlayBook.

 

For reference, unsupported APIs for the Android Runtime can be found here: http://developer.blackberry.com/android/apisupport/

 

Cheers,

Matt
