My internet on my blackberry was working fine and then suddenly it says
'unable to connect to the internet, please try again later.
if the problem persists please contact your service provider'.
it comes up with this message when trying to access the internet normally and through my home wireless after trying to load for 5 minutes. This has never happened before, up until today.
Solved! See solution

Same with our our BOLD 9700 and CURVE 8520
I have found a work a round until Vodafone fixes it:
By default the browser is set to INTERNET BROWSER in this configuration the browser decides to WI-FI or WAP depending if WI-FI is available.
If you set the browser configuration to HOTSPOT it will use your WI-FI connection.
If you set it to VODAFONE LIVE or BROWSER it will use WAP.
To change the configuration by following these steps:
- While in the web browser press black berry key
- select options
- Select Browser Configuration
- Select the drop down next in the Browser section
- Select desired configuaration
- Press blackberry key
- Save options
You will find if you exit the browser and go back into the broswer it will set itself again to internet browser.

Welcome to the eForum it is always good to see new faces on here.
First of all can you confirm if you have the BlackBerry Internet Solutions (BIS) added to your number?
If you don’t have this you won't be able to gain access to the internet.
This is something that you can get for £5 per month on either Pay Monthly or Pay as you go.
If you do have this I would make sure that the service books are sent to your phone, to do this:
Options > Advanced Options > Host Routing Table > highlight any line of numbers and press the BlackBerry button then register.
This will then request for these to be sent to your phone.
Please let me know how you are getting on with this.

Thanks for your post here. I’m sorry to hear that you are having problems with your WiFi connection.
BIS won’t affect WiFi on your handset so can you tell me exactly what is happening?
Do you get any error messages?
Does the WiFi physically connect?
Have you tried resetting your modem?
Have you tried re-entering your WiFi key?
Have you been able to test this with a different modem?
Please let me know and we’ll be happy to help you further.
Want to give feedback about me?
You can do so here

Kind of jumping on the bandwagon here, not sure if it's the right place to post...?
I accidentally switched from Internet Browser to Vodafone Live! this afternoon, and when I switched back I got the error message: "Unable to connect to the Interntet at this time." etc. I've tried the methods above and it still isn't working. The WiFi isn't either. Any suggestions?

I have the'unabl to connect..." error as with the OP.
i have BIS
calls are fine
My home wifi broadband is working on my laptop
neither home wifi or mobile network connect but both are ticked/enabled
it has worked in the past for at least a year with no problems
i tried to cure it by updating the OS to the latest OS7 and initially it worked then stopped
I~ tried to turn on mobile hotspots but i get the error 'cannot start due to a temp network problem"
the only advice i've had from vodafone is to reload the os which is pretty pathetic advice as i said i'd already done it and its hardly something you can do very often.
its end of contract time and i'm so frustrated by this i'm beginning to think the only way i can fix it is to change networks but id rather not.
