Re: Bb curve 8520 grey wifi icon

WiFi and data service are two different things. Wifi is your home Internet, coffee shop Internet, etc. Data service means you have data with your cellular carrier.

Do you have a BB data plan with your carrier? If not, do you have wifi in your house or location?

Re: Bb curve 8520 grey wifi icon

Appworld doesn't require WiFi. It goes a little faster when downloading but it certainly doesn't require it.

Have you connected to your Wifi network? Has it worked in the past?

Try removing the battery to your device and see what happens.
