Default US bought BB - now living in Germany - help!

So, I bought an 8700g before I moved to Germany. The idea was that I would use BB Redirector to send and receive my personal email. So I went out and bought a new SIM here in Germany at the local T-Mobile store. Slipped it in and nothing!!! It reports that the "data connection has been refused."

While in the US, upon booting up the device, the signal would go from "gsm" to "gprs" and than finally to "GPRS" and it was then I could receive my email on the browse the web. Which leads me to another Internet icons are missing.

T-Mobile in Germany has been completely useless. They donít know about the "blackberry redirector" software. They want me to use the "email push" option.

Can anyone shed some light here??

Much appreciated!!
