You friend needs to approve your request... Also, you need a blackberry data plan.

In the top right, by your signal bars, what does it say? Case matters (edge is not the same as EDGE)

You need to call vodafone and ask for the Blackberry Internet Service to be added to your account.
It will be 5 per month, and will usually replace the 5 Internet Browsing you currently have.

What's the distinction between the two? I've noticed it with both cases (upper/lower) on my phone... I'm on T-Mobile w/ unlimited data plan...

When lower case, you are not connected to the RIM network. You would have carrier data service, but not for blackberry apps (push email, etc)
