Re: way to use free internet on blackberry devices

If you work off of Wi-Fi, you don't pay your carrier for data usage. In order to properly use the BlackBerry browser, you might need to have service books pushed to your phone. In order to get them, you need a proper BlackBerry data plan (aka BIS for BlackBerry Internet Service) on your account. 

 

Try surfing on Wi-Fi to see if you're successful. If not and you don't want to pay for internet, try loading the Opera Mini browser to your phone through your PC browser. It will work without BIS on your account.

 

 

I hope that helps you.  Smiley Happy

One thing that creeps me out with public wifi is that it's unsecured for data eavesdroppers.  Need a VPN.

I work for a team that is trying to develop working VPN solution for all BlackBerry devices. If you are interested in providing feedback about setup process or general usage please contact me.
