Yes, I actually got it sorted out. It doesn't work consistently, but it worked a few times.
What I had to do was turn on the wireless network with data set to "on" not "prompt". In my case, it still wouldn't even connect under those circumstances. Then, I did a battery pull, and when the phone came back on it would be connected to data and the wireless network via roaming *which will cost you $$*. I quickly went to the settings, and turned off the wireless network, but left the wifi on.
It would then be connected. Sometimes it takes a few tries to get it right, and it did not work consistently for me. I also found that if I turned my phone off once connected, it would lose the connectivity and I would have to re-do the method all over again.
I never had this problem with my Curve2 last year. I didn't think it would be so complicated with the Torch.

I might be out of date on my technical data, but would this issue not be to do with service books. When you had your old sim card that was supported on the phone, you had the service books from that service provider that your phone used to access the network. When you put in a new sim card, it replaced the service books with those from your new service provider, however that service provider doesn't support BB service, or perhaps just doesn't support your particular device. If this is the case, it may also affect your device connecting via WIFI to BIS services.
My knowledge is more from BB 5.0 on my old storm, so I may be out of date on the wifi issues.

I want to try this. Borrow a SIM card from someone here who has BB services.......put it in my BB and see if i can download the HRT and Service Books. Then put my own SIM card back in.
How will i and the person who lends me their SIM card be affected. I think we both have BIS on BES.
