Wifi issue with storm 2
i downloaded OS 126.96.36.1998 and now i'm having issues connecting with wifi. now that BIS is having issues tonight i cant connect. is this a known issue with 188.8.131.528 or is something wrong with my blackberry or does this have something to do with BIS?
Silly thing, but try switching the default browser from regular to hotspot browser, and try with wifi then.
my wifi is down as well. I've had the .428 OS for a while now, but ever since the outage today, my phone is pretty much a brick.
I'm not sure if the RIM network is tied to VZW and there service books that allow wifi to work. As screwy as that sounds, I wouldn't be surprised.
I can use Wifi for internet but you are not going to be able to do BBM or email with out RIM period
I cannot connect through the regular browser, but switch to hotspot browser and it connects.
Right you have to change it to hotspot or it searches for BIS. It may not be auto switching because of the BIS being down but should still allow you to surf the web.

hi, I'm in Panama, i use Movistar (Telefonica Brand for Panama and some other countries) i have a BOLD 9000 with latest official OS (installed like a month ago or more), i have not had BIS for the past 2 months...however i use WIFI for Live Messenger, BBM (5.0.056), BBBrowser...and it all stopped working today as well. I just installed BBM .57 and still nothing works.
Also, i have a couple of friends with BES and same problem, nothing works.
I think this is not related only to BIS or BES but actually to the whole Blackberry system...
So i made a couple of tests with apps i know were working yesterday:
GoogleMaps not working
facebook not working
bloomberg mobile not working
Blackberry Browser not working (hotspot or internet browser)
I can not connect to the Email configuration wizard through my carrier WAP either
My Wireless connection, Internet service and IP address is fine and working, my notebook works fine on same connection, plus, the blackberry shows a valid IP from WLAN and i can use Appworld, downloaded BBM .57 and installed...also, viigo works fine.
Hope they fix what they did soon and at least emit some information stating they are having issues but well....I also Hope Google buys them so who knows
