Default Re: Consumer Cellular Data Configuration

To add to what devnull says, John, BlackBerrys are different. The directions you looked at most likely apply to accessing the carrier network, and might apply to other smartphones.

But as devnull is saying, BlackBerrys require a specific BlackBerry data plan to access the BlackBerry/RIM network and use the native BlackBerry data apps. It is possible to use some third-party apps on the carriers data network via the carrier's APN (configured in TCP/IP options), but that's as far as you will get without a BlackBerry data plan.

When you have the plan, the configuration is accomplished via service books that are automatically pushed to the handset. And if your carrier does not support BlackBerrys, then you are out of luck as far as BlackBerry data.
