    Cannot Find My Wi-Fi

    I just picked up my blackberry pearl 8120 (bar, but new model) yesterday, and since I decided not to buy a data plan, I tried out the wi-fi function with my home router. It worked fine, but today, when I tried re-connecting, it couldn't find my network. I rebooted, reset, everything, it wouldn't work. Google didn't help so, I'm asking on here. Anyone Know what's wrong and how I can fix it?

    Yep, take the battery out of your phone for about 30 seconds, then put it back in.

    Haha, i actually have a ipod touch, and it works fine.

    Unfortunately, The battery pull did not work. I still cannot find my network.

    Speaking of ipod touch, i have tried to find the router on my ipod, and it's fine, so it must be a phone problem

    If you scan for the network, does it show up? Is there any kind of security on the router?

    Try turning the router off for about 30 seconds then turn it on and rung the setup wifi wizard again and see if tha helps

    I have another question, about AIM on the pearl. When I try to log on, it says that servos is not enabled, is there a way to fix that?

    Yes I believe your AIM isn't working because you opted out of the data package.
    No matter where you go, there you are

    AIM needs an actual data plan, it can not just work on wifi alone.
