Your research is correct. And there is no way around it. Call T-Mobile and have them add a BB data plan to your account and send the proper service books.

thanks for the advice but what do you mean by "proper service books"

BB's need service books for many things such as email, BBM, Internet, etc. Once you get a BB data plan, your carrier, T-Mobile, will automatically send them as part of the activation process.

The simple answer to "what is a service book" is it's the key in the lock to open the door. No key, no access to the application function.
