BlackBerry smartphone how to disable internet via the network, but leave the wi - fi on?

Hi all

I'm new to Blackberry but love until now.  I have a questionette for you to wizzo on something that left me speechless:

My rate is not all internet at all (I'm only a poor pensioner!), but it seems that installation is there for me to use it if I do not pay attention if I want to turn it off permanently while installing wi - fi on.  This was possible on my android, but I gave to my wife because the screen is not too sensitive to my skin.  I got the Blackberry the the guy in the store where I bought it, but all he has done is disable data completely so now I can't use it on WiFi either.

Can you tell me if this is possible and if so, how?

Thanks in advance.


As long as your data Services (under manage connections > Mobile Network Options) are lit, you will receive data via Wi - Fi.  When you turn on your Mobile network, you are turning ON the ability to receive calls and texts.  If you do not require these two features to be active (and therefore guarantee 100% that you use not any network data), then let your off Mobile network.  As you said, leaving the disabled Mobile network is similar to airplane mode.

I hope that clears up any confusion.  Please post back if I'm not understanding something.

  • BlackBerry smartphones, how can I know if the person who still use bbm or left bbm?

    How do I know if they left bbm and its show up on my phone?

    all cluee for whom? some bbm left ppeoples and I didn't know that

    How will I know?

    If you send them a message and there is a Red X, it means that they do not have the Blackberry Service. But if it gives you just a box, i.e. There is no installed BBM, phone off or no signal. And if you receive a check with "D" or "R" which means that the phone has installed on Blackberry and BBM data Plan assets. D means Delivered and R is synonym of reading.

    Hope this helps

  • BlackBerry smartphone how to activate Internet on BES navigation

    Hi all

    I'm trying to activate internet browsing from Blackberry devices. Joana re connect a BES Server version, and I have about 60 users. This is a new server is a new domain. I confirmed that devices are capable, because they are all previously belonging to another area, that was the BES server already configured for internet access.

    My BES connects through a proxy server for internet. I have not fully understood all areas that need to be configured, and I'm getting a "error Http 403: Forbidden" error.

    I already configured the BES as follows - I am I missing?

    Properties of the field of BB
    Create an extraction rule, add group,
    Rules of the user, add users to the Group
    Create a URL schema, http *. *
    The URL scheme rules, check 'allow' for the Group
    Properties of MDS connection service
    HTTP - support HTTP auth = true
    Proxy - direct and other maps

    I found a way to do it now...

    Basically, I got the below appropriate configuration. The problem was that my proxy server has been the traffic stop. I added a new ISA access rule to allow traffic from my BES server on ports 80 and 443, and it works.

    I am not sure that the "HTTP - supported HTTP auth = true' value is really necessary, but I'll play with it later. I hope that everyone in the research on this topic will find this post, then save them from time to time I spent.
