How to connect to Wi-Fi on a BlackBerry

Use Wi-Fi instead of 3G to surf the web

Smartphones allow users to surf the web, download apps and check emails from their handset. However, this can be costly when it comes to using data, especially if you don't have an all-you-can-consume package. By using a Wi-Fi connection instead of data, you'll ensure there's far less damage to your wallet. Here's how to connect to a Wi-Fi network from your BlackBerry.

Step one
From the Menu screen, choose Settings and then Set up Wi-Fi.

Step two
From the screen displayed, select Next. Now press Scan for Networks.

Step three
From the list of displayed network, select the one you want to connect to. If the Wi-Fi network is secured, you'll need to enter the key. The handset will then connect to the network, leaving you free to surf the web from your smartphone.
