I had the same issue with my Bold 9780 which was locked to Bell and got it from a friend, unlocked it and put a Rogers SIM card in it. I do not have a data plan. While WiFi is connected and active, the browser did not seem to connect ever. I tried a number of things suggested in other forums like disabling WMM Support under QoS (Linksys router WRT310N), playing with Radio Bands and Channels (this 9780 does NOT support 'N' Network Mode so I had to change my config to 'Mixed' on the router) but nothing really seemed to work. So I reverted back the WMM and the other settings except the Network Mode (left it at Mixed) Again no change. And THEN I said heck why not turn off the WIFI switch on my laptop in front of me just in case it was interfering with the Bold. And BAM!!! it worked on the spot!!! It's now connected at 48 Mbps. Great. I turned my laptop wifi back on and they've been both working for the last couple hours. Fingers crossed.
Of course this could have been just a big coincidence...
Now a special note: The browser icon on my Home screen automatically wants to go to a Rogers site but I always get 'There is insufficient network coverage to process your request Please try again later.' But if I type another address it will work.
