Curve 8520-Wi fin connection problem

Helloo...Four months ago I bought a Blackberry guaranteed by etisalat. When i
 left to Jordan for the summer, i canceled my UAE Blackberry service, i
 don't think that the service will continue workine here in Jordan.

and i had to unlock the system because wanted to put Jordanian SIM card.. does unlocking the system has anything to do with the wireless problem.....

 Now am experiencing a problem with the wireless connection. the phone
 scans the networks and tells me that it is connected to the wireless
 network i want, but when i start browsing or using the MSN it doesn't
 work  at all. and the "wi fi" sign on the home page stays grey (unconnected).....

 When i used the blackberry help, it missioned that i have to check my
roaming service, and change my SIM to the roaming service. is ths wt the problem is?? or wt exactly...??

 in case my wi fi problem is not with the SIM roaming can you tell me
what is the problem that i have please.. And please tell me how to fix...
I really need to fix my wireless coz i need it daily...
please reply to me ASAP... Smiley Happy

Re: Curve 8520-Wi fin connection problem

Do you have the BlackBerry Data Plan on your Jordanian carrier?

If not, you won't see the bright white WiFi logo.


A grey WiFi logo does not always mean "not connected". It can mean connected to the WiFi network, but not connected to the BlackBerry Internet Service.


Look at your Manage Connection. is the checkmark or dash green or white?
