    Blackberry Torch Help

    Looking for some help off the blackberry users out there. my gf has just got a blackberry bold but i cant seem to find anywhere in it to make it use wifi to download/browse.

    in the mobile settings page i have disabled the data services but with this setting the browser gives a message saying the data services must be turned on.

    can anyone help?

    ive just been reading that and im still non the wiser, it mentions a symbol that you should see if your using wifi over mobile but no mention of how to get it

    go to menu screen (you no where you see your email folders messenger phonebook etc etc)

    go to manage connections then wifi connection and setup the wifi (once this done) you should see an icon which states wifi in the top right hand corner i think

    and that should start flashing when its been used ie on the browser

    there is no way i no of to make the wifi used over the bb data bolt on as this is auto done when the wifi is on

    if the wifi symbol is grey, then wifi is only been used for the browser, if the symbol is black and white, then wifi is been used to go through the bb internet server (bb messenger, app world & etc)

    cant tell mate. i dont think so because if you turn off data services in the mobile settings menu the browser just gives an error message saying the data connection needs to be on. seems a pointless to have wifi in that case, dont yout think?

    the data bundle should be on by tomorrow so it shouldnt matter so much its still annoying thougg

    go to browser in options, change the first option to 'hotspot' and try again with data services off.

    ooo ok if you had said u hate no data i could of told you it dont matter if wifi is on or not you must have data plan for the browser to work, there is a work around (you will need to join a forum like bbs game) but the above error is purely because you have no data plan, it will work fine once this is activated

    so once my plan is active it'll use the wifi in preference over the data? its just away of making sure people buy data plans?

    when data plan is active, all you do is turn wifi on, it will use wifi as long as its connected (@ home for example) yea im geussing thats the idea as really a bb with no data plan is pointless, there is software to bypass this but again i think its pointless

    cool, thanks for the help. btw i agree any smart phone without with a data plan is useless
