wi fi

I have a blackberry curve 8530 and have connected to wi fi (it has our home wi fi name up top) and i can't connect to any browsers  it says that i am currently on a service plan requires a wi fi connection to use this application etc.  How come i can't get on a web page?  I don't need a data plan do i?

Re: wi fi

Yes you do need a data plan, because the carrier blocked the use of internet without data on your plan.
Did i help you with this problem? if so please show your appreciation by clicking the Like button inside of my post. Please remember I am not a RIM employee the support forums are user-to-user, not user-to-RIM.
