Go to your wifi/connection options and set it to "wifi preferred"

You can't. Harrison doesn't realise this feature is only on UMA enabled handsets.

You need the bolt-on. [Facebook won't work without it, technically neither should app world]. The browser requires the bolt-on also.

The bolt-on allows you to connect to Blackberry's servers and get something called "service books". These control access to the things on your phone. The browser requires the proper service book, which you get once you have the bolt-on.

Oh sorry for the miscommuinication. I misread your post a bit, and though your phone was uma-enabled.
