Default WAP & HTTP Access?

Please Login to Remove!

Currently we have WAP internet access however I have downloaded a few free apps, (a weather one for exanple) that require HTTP access. How do I get HTTP internet access on the blackberry? Do I need to turn on Mobile Data Service?

There's several ways to get internet access on a Blackberry device...
1. WAP Browser - connects using a WAP gateway. Does not require MDS
2. Blackberry Browser - connects using the BES/MDS feature
3. Internet Browser- connects to the Blackberry Internet Service (BIS) which is hosted by RIM or some other provider. This does not require the use of a BES

The browser icon should be there already.....
If the icon isn't there, when you enable MDS on the server, resend the service books.
