Unable to connect using BB9700 WiFi
I'm roaming in Vietnam. I've turned off Data Services via the Mobile Network. I have connected to the local WIFI provider.
However, I can see from the MANAGE CONNECTIONS screen, I can see there is a "TICK" mark next to the Mobile Network. However, there is a "-" mark next to the WIFI connection. Is there something wrong there?
I went to the Browser, but was not able to connect "Unable to connect to the Internet". The browser is set to HOTSPOT BROWSER already.
Any ideas why I can't surf? Thanks!
have you made sure you didnt need a password or anything for the wifi connection?

And I'm pretty sure of that too Sun

I would suggest having the carrier send you the right service books (which they might have to turn on data for a moment..) some carriers might opt out of that idea
Yes, you are right, you have to turn on data for a moment to let the carrier send you the right service books.
