How do I configure my Fido BB Curve 8520 if I want to use BBM or the Browser from France without incuring roaming charges (with Wi-Fi). I noticed that when I turn DATA off, it also turns off the Wi-Fi. Someone suggested I leave DATA SERVICES and WHILE ROADMING ON but check off the Mobile Network (FIDO)
Is this the way to go ?.
It is possible to use BIS services over WiFi.
You need to have your BIS information already setup and must keep the sim card in the device.
I recommend you turn of Mobile Network (To make sure you do not incur any roaming charges) under Options->Manage Connections. Then connect to WiFi, BBM SHOULD work. Data services need to be left on. Browsing should also work.
If using an older model or firmware you may need to change the default browser:
Change the default browser to "HotSpot"
