Default Blackberry only has hotspot browser?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Blackberry 8520 on orange pay as you go. I selected the dolphin plan so i could use the internet occasionally when out, but I only have a wifi browse?

I know how to get to the option where there should be orange world, but there's only hotspot browser as a option?

What do i do to get the internet on outside on my phone? It works fine in the house through wifi...but need to use it outside too.

Thanks.

You need a BlackBerry Data plan in order to get the service books for the other browsers.
You won't get them on PAYG.

Ok. I thought you could just select the dolphin option on orange and get the free 100mb a month?

So I need a contract phone to use the internet?

I'm sorry...I'm a real novice.

You need a BB data plan activated on your device - might be called a BB bolt-on or something similar.

Orange do have Blackberry data on PAYG.
Call them up, ask that Blackberry Internet Service be added to your plan.

A regular smart phone data plan like Dolphin is not for BlackBerrys. Like MD said, ring 'em up and get the BlackBerry add-on.
