Blackberry Curve 9300 - No SIM - Free Home WiFi not Hotspot

Hello,

I've just opened my new Blackberry Curve 9300, added my home wireless network connection (WPA Personal), and entered the key. I haven't put a SIM in the phone. I have tried to access the internet but I see the message:

"This is a Wi-Fi server. Please ensure your device has an active Wi-Fi connection and try again."

I've checked the wireless key is correct (my laptop is currently using the same wireless connection).

Research suggests the following solutions:

1) Use different browser (i.e. not the Hotspot Browser)
2) Get a Blackberry data plan

My thoughts:

1) Ok great, but which one, and where might one get it?
2) Surely this is not required for simply using Wi-Fi internet (as opposed to 3G)

And so, is it possible to simply turn my Blackberry on, setup wireless and start surfing?

Many thanks.

you must use hotspot browser options advanced options and browser and select hotspot.(wifi browser)

and you can surf. if you want to setup your email account you must get bis data plan but for only connect to internet you can use wifi without sım.

and If the problem persists and if you can find a sim( has bis data) ( for a few minute) send your device service book and you can use again without sım Smiley Tongue because you will get wifi service book.
