Re: WiFi connection

Hey laurence514,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Thanks for the question.

Some network service providers require a data plan to use the browser even if you want to use Wi-Fi®.  


Was there any other applications you were trying to use the Wi-Fi connection on?


I look forward to your reply.

Re: WiFi connection

The social plans don't include internet and email, you need a full featured BIS plan for that.
