Re: reg blackberry 8520 wifi problem

Hi sudheer8989 and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums!


When you connect to a Wi-Fi network, the BlackBerry smartphone will automatically re-route the data services through that Wi-Fi connection.  You can verify that you are using the Wi-Fi connection for your data by going to Manage Connections>Service Status.  From here, it will show you which connections your data services are currently using.
