I have a blackberry curve 9320 and a vodafone dataplan, and when I turn off data services whilst connected to wi-fi at home, email and facebook still works, but I cannot use the browser. A message appears saying data services must be turned on.
With both connected, the wi-fi signal disappears and only 3G remains, so the browser only seems to use 3G. Is there anyway I can change this so I am able to browse using wi-fi and not 3G to save data allowance?
I have checked browser options, and broswer configuration or browser settings is not a present option, and as far as I know there is no way of explicitly setting connection priotirities on my phone.

The old BBs had a setting for Prefer Wifi or Prefer Mobile - the latest ones don't seem to have the option.
Does the message apear as soon as you open the browser?
Is your Home Page a Vodafone website?
I remember checking this a month or so ago - my BB 9900 will always prefer wifi (with Data Services on or off) unless the browser is directed to a Vodafone website, in which case it will revert to the GPRS/EDGE/3G connection & insist that Data Services are turned on.
I'm confused about your wifi signal disappearing ... are you saying that the BB drops the wifi connection when it picks up the 3G?
(the name of the wifi connection should show next to vodafone UK & you should see the concentric arc symbol with wifi connected)
To double check whether the wifi connection is active, go to Options > Device Status ... if there's a non-zero IP address in the wifi section, your phone is connected.
Hope this helps.
