Wifi will not work

I bought my Backberry Curve 8520 in July 2011 and it worked perfectly when I was living in Ireland. But, I moved to Italy in August and Vodafone unlocked my phone in September so I could support an Italian Sim.

But since then I can not connect to my home wifi and when I top up it drains all my money. I keep getting messages about support plan when I use twitter and I can no longer access my emails nor the browser. When I click on browser the Blackberry icon appears and doesn't even load. Even my BBM does not work on it!

Does anyone have any suggestions which may help me to connect to the internet?

When I click on "Manage Connections" there is the regular blue tick next to my Mobile Network and W-Fi but there is no green tick to the right of Wi-Fi!

Thanks for any suggestions in advance!

Re: Wifi will not work

When you signed up with your Italian provider, did they add a Blackberry Data Plan to your account rather than just a standard data plan?
