since your ABOUT option is not working, indicates that there are OS issue. You might want to reinstall your OS.
you could also try turning off your wireless radio(manage connections) then connect to wireless

Hi, thanks for the reply.
I was trying to roll back using Older OS (lower than 4.5) and I accidentally pulled out the usb cable while doing so...my bb went blank with just a blinking red light. It took me hours to search a thread on how to revive a "nuked' bb (that's what they call it) and it almost gave me a heart attack.
I wiped it clean and then downloading 8320EastAsia_PBr4.5.0_rel174_PL220.127.116.11_A18.104.22.168
Still got the same problem, can see all the wifi network but my bb won't connect. It's driving me nuts.
Changed the router channel on my home network, reset it etc. Use different security setting (WEP, WPA etc) and I even tried not to use a security setting at all. Still got the same problem.

I have the same phone, and I'm having the same W002 error. Unlocked T-Mobile 8320. Latest software.
Does anyone from BB Tech support monitor these boards?
I have traffic snooped (logs below). It seems that the router is TRYING to give out an IP address, but I can't tell what the problem is, not being a BB or network expert.

So...some more information. My 8320 is an unlocked one from ebay. I put my T-mo prepaid SIM in and phone/SMS is good, but Wifi went away.
I called T-Mobile, and I was told that a prepaid service is "not eligible" for WiFi access.
They said if I went month-to-month or contract, Wifi would work. Since I only use ~100 min/month, prepaid works for me, and going month-to-month pretty much triples my monthly cost. I don't expect free use of T-mobile's network (cell/edge) but I do expect free use of MINE (WiFi) ! Customer service rep "understands my disappointment", but basically says that the policy and if I don't like it I can leave.
Can anyone confirm/deny this? Anyway, I have a decision to make: 1) Start paying $30/month 2) Live without WiFi, 3) Switch carriers)
My goal is to have a phone/pda with a LogicMail email client when I'm in a Wifi range. Low monthly cost is pretty important.

I have a 8320 Blackberry and experience the same issue. when I insert my prepaid SIM card inside my Blackberry, I will lose the wifi connectivity. I am using Rogers prepaid SIM card. I amwondering if there is any ways to work around the issue. Please let us know how we can make it work.

I have had similar problems with WiFi with a prepaid SIM (t-mobile US).
I have since upgraded to 22.214.171.124, did a master clear, and did a battery pull. Not sure which part worked, but WiFi works for me on most networks now.
So WiFi DOES work with t-mo to-go, no matter what T-mo support says.

Sorry, my first post is not showing all the way on my computer.
I want to make sure its all posted.
I have the blackberry curve 8320 with prepaid service and
was having the same problem.
Go to options, then to advanced options, then to browser.
Make sure the default browser configuration is set to
hot spot browser.
This worked for me, I can now use the wifi through my home service
or any other service.
Hope this helps the rest of you!
