Purchased blackberry curve 9300 last december, since then haven't connect to the internet. called Rogers tech support many times.I was told I had to have data plan to connect internet.I have voice only plan.
The problem is the phone is connect to my home wireless router, but when i browse internet, the message showed"Unable to connect to the internet, please try again later. if the problem persists please contact your service provider"
