Re: Blackberry Curve-8520 Wifi not working.

Hi all.

Just signed up today as exact same thing has happened to me, problem started Tuesday 07/06/11(I too have a BB curve 8520 since August last year that has worked perfectly up to for-mentioned date)

Been racking my brains to figure out if I had done something wrong or a problem with my internet ( i work away which is why i got the BB in the first place as cant always get a mobile signal on its own)

Been trawling many forums in search of a solution and this is the first one that has given any definate answer.

Followed all advice such as hard reboot, re-registering housting table etc to no avail and was afraid I had broken it!!!!

Orange didn't have a clue when I rang them and were little or no help.

Im glad to finally see that the fault appears to be definately with BB themselves and there servers, but I agree surely an e-mail or text message (they are still working via UMA) from them to say there is a problem would have been nice.

Thanks to all you have posted and put my mind at ease
