I am sure this is a pretty basic problem, but I am travelling abroad (with global data plan), but I would rather receive email and browse with the hotel's free wifi. I am connected, but when I go to browse, I receive an error "A communication failure has occerrued. The server may be busy, please try again later. If teh problem persists, contact your service provider."
I am connected to the wifi network with teh BB. My "data services" is set to OFF, as I was told I would be billed against the 3G usage. Email does not come in either.
I can connect correctly with my laptop, so I have something wrong with the BB settings.
This may be fixed by simply pulling the battery from the phone while its powered on and leaving it out for 10-15 seconds. When you turn it back on, try to restart the wi-fi connection and use the browser. Additional advanced troubleshooting can be found here.
Have a great day!
