Maybe this from our FAQ will help: What do I need a Data Plan for? - BlackBerryFAQ

First, a regular carrier data plan is not the same as a BlackBerry data plan. Some carrier plans will include a few data services like social networking, but they're limited to exactly what they spell out.

Second, MTN has become notoriously unreliable with downloading via BIS. I've read many complaints about data throttling to the point where downloads fail completely, or connections are periodically turned off by MTN.

All users on all carriers in South Africa are having problems downloading. I suspect it is due to 3G upgrades. Do a search on it.
