Curve 9360 WiFi Problems.

So recently my BBM and Internet package run out so I thought I'd use my WiFi but only the browser works. I rebooted my phone earlier today and WhatsApp worked after I left the house and when I came back it stopped working so I rebooted once again and it won't work :/

Re: Curve 9360 WiFi Problems.

Hello,

Many apps require that your BIS data plan be active, even if you are using services via WiFi. From what you describe, this is what I would deduce to be your situation.

Good luck!

Re: Curve 9360 WiFi Problems.

BBM won't work without the BIS ! but all other apps ( whatsApp included ) may work via wifi only, just make sure that the wifi logo is not transparent !

WhatsApp should be working, it only requires internet. I don't get why it won't work:/ it works for my friends:/

Re: Curve 9360 WiFi Problems.

I have read conflicting reports as to if WhatsApp does or does not require BIS. To be certain, you would need to ask the WhatsApp folks...they control their app...
