You receive that message because you do not have a BlackBerry data plan. You will need to get BlackBerry data plan for your device to function properly.

Welcome to the forums.

It doesn't matter what carrier the device is branded to, you need a data plan from your current carrier. Call you current carrier and see if they offer a BLACKBERRY data plan.

That will be the problem....in my carrier there is no offer for Blackbarry...nothing,I need to wait.

Well then to remove the message, do as the FAQ instructs.
Go to Options > Mobile Network and turn Data Services to OFF.
