Hello, I actually have a blackberry 7250 on alltel, which is CDMA and not GSM, but I was able to get data over wap without a data plan. I didn't have to do anything, just installed Opera Mini, it determined my connection and worked fine. The reason that you aren't seeing the browser icon is because you don't have service books saying that you have a data plan. I'm not sure if this will work for you. Two things to watch out for though. 1. The blackberry I have will connect to the data, all the time, so watch out for that. Yours may let you shut off the data services, so you can shut that off when your not using it. 2. They probably will find out you are using a blackberry and using data without a plan, and cancel your service, or charge you massive fees. Bottom line: It may work, but the data charges may be expensive and the carrier may find out you are doing this.
