I have a 6 months BIS on a pre-paid simcard. As I do not need to call, text or data (non-BIS), I have not recharge it ... but GOOD though as my BIS is still functioning 100%; i.e. BBM, BB Browsing, etc, are all in good order.
I have just updated to BBM 7 knowing that it gives me BBM Voice Chat .... this will "presumably" give me more freedom by "merely" subscribing to BIS. When I tried to call "by tapping on Phone Sign", it always shows "Make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi and Try Again" while I am connected to Wi-Fi.
Can anyone help me or share ideas with me on this ? Thanks

if you're getting the error then BBM Voice Chat is not going to work for you.
there is a work around if you manually enter the IP address of your device on the wifi network into yuor network settings (see: :: iMudassir: BBM 7 - Features & bug fixes) BUT you have to do this for every wifi network you connect to. so unless you only want to use it at say home or the office it's basically unuseable.
i have the problem and having given up.
seeing as RIM are so desperately trying to regain market share a mistake like this is a serious oopsy
