BB Curve :: Use 8520 To Connect To The Internet Using WiFi?
Mar 27, 2011
I'm trying to use my Curve 8520 to connect to the internet using my home Wi-Fi. I have not trouble connecting and downloading apps, or using web sites. The problem comes when I try to use one of the apps which needs and internet connection (Blackberry App World, Facebook, Google, etc.). All of these apps generate an error message saying that they are having trouble connecting to the internet and that I should verify my network connections. This leads me to believe I have a setting wrong somewhere.
currently I am running Opera mini on the 8520 Curve.I have turned on gprs & wifi.How can I make sure the Opera Mini uses wifi to connect to the internet? It does not show wifi or gprs in the right top corner.
i have a BB curve 8520, i bought it through Optus (it is unlocked now) but am connected through virgin australia Virgin has no settings for it and tell me to ring blackberry but i cannot find a number in australia to ring?how to connect it to get mms and to get onto the internet?
I bought an 8520 in Egypt a few weeks ago and used all internet services successfully with a provider there (Mobinil).
I had the PIN freed by Mobinil so I could register it with O2 in the UK, but I'm unable to access internet services although I'm on the correct data plan and my PIN is free to register. The handset works fine for calls and SMS via O2.
I bought a blackberry curve 8520 a few days ago and i am currently with optus/boost. when i connected my wifi and tried to conenct to the internet it wouldn't work. The message: 'Data connection refused to the wireless network and your BlackBerry cannot connect a data session to the WAP gateway'. appears on the screen. I have an unlimited data plan. The wifi symbol appears on my screen with the name of my wifi network however the symbol is in grey.
I have a bb 8520 but wifi not working, nor the internet. the carrier doesnt know what is the problem.i want to attempt reloading the os but I checked bb site and GT&T not listed. Digicel is listed wihch is the other carrier in the country. Would i encounter any problem if i used digicel os download on a phone with a GT&T sim?
My partner has a BB Curve 8520 and tried to install an app from bbworld yesterday, the phone restarted and now gets 3/4 of the way across the bar and fails to load anymore, Ive done some research and realised i need to reinstall the os, The problem being we only have one usb lead and i use that to tether internet through my bb torch, Iv downloaded the installation files but whenever i start it 'checks for updates', which i believe means online, it will not go past this step, Is there a way to manually reinstall the os without having to connect to the internet? If i try connecting to the desktop software it recognises my device and pin but says it cant connect so needs to update, and leaves me with the same problem.
I have recently changed my blackberry plan to instant messages and email only and now i cannot access the internet over my home wifi. It connects but remains grayed out and no internet pages will load. I have hot rebooted several times and there is no problem with my wifi
I have a bb curve 8520, I currently connect to my home wifi an have been fine using that, all of a sudden its not working! It says I am connected so I try to browse the internet and it says Unable to Connect to Internet, Please try again later. I am very confused as it says I am successful connected to my wifi?
my BB used to connect to my wireless network but for some odd reason it doesnt anymore: it recognizes the network but cannot connect to the internet. On the other hand, it connects to any other network: ive successfully connected to many friends wireless and many restaurants' wireless without any problem. Its worth mentioning that my BB used to connect fine with my homes wireless and i just woke up one day to find that it isnt working anymore (the wifi sign remains gray, in the "wifi connections" there is a connection and theres a white line in the black box instead of a tick.Is there any way to fix this?
I have a blackberry curve 8520 and I have a problem the phone is suppose to be able to run all internet except bbm through wifi even when I have no credit or active bbm. I can't log into msn or even access any other website from it all I can get on is fb's home page.
i have recently upgraded the software on my phone and now i cant connect to any wifi spots at work or at home. the wifi icon just stays grey but at the top of the phone, it shows i am connected to networks.
where i live i have no mobile signal and i rely on the WIFI to get my emails through.
When I bought this device, my wi-fi connection is doing well but after a month of using, I suddenly have trouble connecting to the internet. Instead of a green tickmark next to the wi-fi setting, it's a white dash that has been appearing. The wi-fi logo at the top of the screen is colored gray and there's a word "edge" over it.
I brought a new BB 8520 last night. Now I am trying to connect my BB device with wifi, it shows that my device is connect with wifi. But the moment I try to use internet on it, it gives me a message that check your settings. I did the settings again and again. But no result shows. How I can use it.
i have been sent an mms but i cannot retrieve it and im also having trouble with the wifi, i have a home router and i have it up via the manual instructions, it will show the wifi name on the top of the screen but when i try to connection to the net it says unable to connect?
i am trying to connect my blackberry curve 8520 to my own wi-fi at home, but it will not connect me to the router?its says to enter a pin to the router... i have watched videos on Internet and followed them step by step, but yet it still does not connect, this is what i have done:
-went to main menu -clicked on 'manage connections' -made sure the 'wi-fi on' box is ticked -then clicked 'set up wi-fi network' -scan for networks -clicked on the network which is my router -then it comes up saying
'provisioning wi-fi profiles...enter this pin into your wireless router: 18104707 time remaining 4:11.'
I already set up my wifi network yesterday and i was able to browse but it stopped working just this morning. It prompted that the available wifi network is available but each time I am attempting to connect it says: Unable to connect. Reason Failure to connect to the network.
I have a home WiFi network and can connect my BB 8520 curve to it successfully and it is able to browse and use apps etc. How-ever everyday or two even though it remains connected to WiFi it suddenly is not able to browse. I need to restart the BB or Router or both and then it reconnects and can browse again. What could be causing this ?I am unable to add or be added to other BB's in terms of using the IM. Contacts that I am trying to add remain in pending (waiting for authorization). I do not have a data plan with my 3G network provider as I only want to use data related functions when connected to my home Wi-Fi. What could be causing the problem?
My girlfriend has a BB Curve 9300, it was working all fine on the OS5. Last weekend she asked me if i could update her software, and i did so from the Blackberry Desktop Software and updated to OS6. Everything was working fine until we found out that it only connects to the internet if i use data service, but i dont want to because we have wi-fi at home. When i turn data services and while roaming OFF, and put wi-fi preferred, and when i try to open a web page in the browser it pop ups a window saying "Data Services are disabled. Go to Mobile Network to enable".
I cant get my daughters 8520 to connect to our home wifi. I have searched and found my wifi,saved it and it says connected. But when i click on the browser button it says unable to connect or sometimes just a blank white screen. I have followed the setup advice but no joy.
i've made my wifi connection on my Curve 9300 nd I can see the network on the screen but when I want to connect my phone on the Internet with my wifi connection, it's seems the only way is having an abonment which includes data, what's I haven't. Can connect my phone on the by wifi or not ?
