Thanks to those that responded to my text alert question.
So, here's the deal. I borrowed a SIM to register my unlocked Pre 2. I use T-mobile and do not have a data plan (don't want one).
I connected the phone for the first time yesterday to my home Wi-Fi network. It went great! It even did an OTA to WebOS 2.1 or something like that. I could access the APP catalog and all data features.
However, ever since then, the phone dings every minute and says "captive portal detected". If I open it, it takes me to a page advertising data for $1.99 / mb. I don't want this! I also want the pesky alert to stop!
I searched the forum and found a thread on this topic that involved a patch. Basic question: how do I get and download/install this patch?
