Browser works but Apps don't work on Wifi..

Hello everyone. I use a Wifi connection with my Blackberry Curve 8520. I don't have a data plan. My browser works when I select Hotspot Browser. But my apps still don't work. I would appreciate if somebody could tell me a solution for this. Thanks in advance.

Hey nikita18,

Thanks for the question.

 

A lot of the applications require a data plan or access to the BlackBerry Infrastructure to operate.  Once you have a data plan these applications will work over Mobile Network and Wi-Fi.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions.

 

Cheers.

Sorry for replying late and thanks for your response ViciousFerret. But none of the apps on my Curve are working including BBM, whatsapp etc. Is it because of what you said as the reason for this?

Re: Browser works but Apps don't work on Wifi..

whatsapp should be working in a wifi area with no need to the BIS !
but BBM requiers a data plan !
does other apps ( like facebook, viber..)
work without a data plan?
