I cant seem to get access to the web with my Blackberry Bold 9780. I have a data booster but cant connect on WI-FI. Can anybody tell me why?

Prepaid data boosters and data don't work with the older BlackBerry.

It's in the fine print

Sorry man, they don't sell BlackBerry for prepaid. Perhaps you can get a non BlackBerry smartphone to use.

I mean like not an older BlackBerry. The newer BlackBerry 10 models will work

I just noticed you're trying to access over wifi and cannot. Using a windows pc and the desktop software you can add opera mini to your BlackBerry and at least use wifi. You can not use the built in browser without a connection to BIS which you can't get using prepaid.
