hi folks, wonder if u guys could help me out on this issue.
i did not subscribe to a data plan from my carrier, however i do have another data sim card.

but the problem is when i go to my blackberry 8800 browser using the data sim card, the following message popped up:

Your device does not currently have any browser configuration services book entries.

Please contact your service provider to enable the browser on your device.

how do i go about it from here on?
advise appreciated, thank u, guys

I believe that the BB browser only works with a BB data plan and the correct service books installed. You might be able to get some data with Opera Mini, but I really don't know how you would go about getting that installed without the correct data plan.

You need a BB dataplan fo rthe BB browser and email as mentioned above. I have been told that Opera Mini will work with a regular dataplan.

From the FAQ:
