Call the carrier Blackberry tech support. Either there's a problem with provisioning, an outage, or you don't have a Blackberry data plan. In pretty much all cases you'll need the carrier's assistance.

Somtimes removing the battery, waiting a few seconds and then re-inserting it clears up the data connection refused message.

In regards to your Yahoo problem. I'm guessing you're trying to foward your Yahoo mail to the BWC. In which case you need your Yahoo account to be POP3. Yahoo does not offer the POP3 feature for free. You have to pay for it. It's part of Yahoo Mail Plus and costs $19.99 for the year.

Every time I've seen this (always on a new BB) it's been because the provider has not applied the blackberry data service properly to the SIM. Start with them first.
