Factory reset is a hot and miss as a solution. I did 7 factory reset , nothing works, so I got an RMA ,
One thing I can tell you is that of the factory reset doesn't fix wifi connectivity , the setup will not be considered complete by both Desktop Software and the PB itself and , like me, at that point, you have NO PB, its groundHog Day on the WIFI page and unlike Bill Murray you don't get to see all the PB had , everything is gone but the wifi screen.
Now, some people have fixed WIFI by power down , other by factory reset . so it mght work for you .

I agree this is a little disappointing and hope RIM releases a fix for easier use.
I have had the same problems.
Works great at home with WPA wifi
At the hotel, Holiday Inn
Recognizes the wifi at the hotel and connects. On the wifi screen I get a green signal but flip to the web and notice on home screen its grey with an asterisk. Know the HI has a terms and conditions page but can't get there as it won't connect. Go back to wifi screen and its green with a hotspot login, press this and a "hotspot" page comes on and says that my blackberry device is now connected. I can surf for a few minutes but freezes and connectivity is lost. Very frustrating and was never able to resolve.
Yesterday on the flight back home, tried gogoinflight. Started off the same where it recognizes and tried to log on but could not get signin screen. message said your bb smart phone could not connect.... Did as someone else suggested and cut off Bluetooth to eliminate it trying to go through phone. This worked for gogoinflight but will need to check if it will work at the hotel. Glad I'm back at home where it works but no access to the us video store . Hope these ideas help a little as no way I want to do a swipe......
