I recently purchased Blackberry curve 8520 and i am trying to connect to WIFI,the WIFI is connected and shows on my home screen.But when i Browse throug the browser,it browses through both wifi and my service provider.I donot want to access through my service provider as i am getting charged for it.How do i tune my blackberry so that i use only wifi for browsing.

    I haven't used a BB since the 8350i but this should at least get you in the right direction. You want to setup your device to use HotSpot Browser. Look at your Device > Options > Advanced Options > Browser, and set that to Hotspot, and SAVE. This should force it to use WiFi as opposed to your data plan.
