    Storm2 won't connect without Wifi

    Does anyone know why my phone won't connect to data with 3g? It only wants a WiFi connection. I reinstalled my OS and it won't load the items that Verizon pushes. If I try to open the browser, it says I need a WiFi connection. I deleted a program called Smart WiFi and i think it had something to do with it. Does anyone know of a fix for this?

    Do this...open Browser..hit BB key and click on options. Click General Prop. and make sure browser is Internet Browser and NOT hotspot browser. That should fix you right up.

    No, I think it is messed up more than that. I don't even have the Internet browser option in there. It only has Hotspot Browser in there. It is like deleteing that program took away the 3g data option and now I only have WiFi. It is wierd. I thought I read something on here a while back about this problem and someone knew of a fix. I sure can't find it, though.

    Some issue with your hybrid install? Have you tried to re-install your OS?

    It's a RIM issue, there have been reports of people on all carriers having the same issues since yesterday. It's not a phone or carrier issue, just a RIM issue.

    I'm back up and running. It took a 45 minute call to RIM for them to get me back up and running. They are not sure what the problem is but they know they have one. Try calling them at 1-877-255-2377 and chose the pay as you go service, they will NOT charge you for this issue, worked for me.
