I have a MiFi 2200. It works very well with my Dell laptop, an iMac, and my wife's iPhone. However, I am having severe frustrations trying to connect it with my T-Mobile Blackberry 8230. The TMO device is provided by my work despite the fact that I get mixed coverage on the TMO network in my hometown. I was hoping that by connecting to the MiFi, the Blackberry could get data service where Verizon's superior network fills in TMO's gaps (and UMA voice coverage, too, in a pinch).
I have tried changing the MiFi's security settings. I have tried changing the wifi channel on the MiFi. I am getting really frustrated. My Blackberry generally connects to Wifi networks easily (both on my home network and at hotspots in public places). As far as I know, the mifi is the only device it has problems with. I keep getting a W002 error whenever I try to connect. Strangely, the BB has twice spontaneously connected to the MiFi without my intervention. I am not sure how or why.
I'd be much obliged for any advice!
Did you get your problems resolved? I have exactly the same circumstances (Verizon MiFi purchased to augment a business provided T-Mobile Blackberry) and I have exactly the same problems - only I'm about 60 days behind you in trying to resolve these problems. Phil
