Default T-Mobile: Can't Use More Than 1 Internet App

Please Login to Remove!

For some reason I can't use more than one internet app on my Pearl. For example, if I turn on my phone and start up the Gmail app, it works and if I go open Opera Mini and try to visit a site I get an error saying "Failed to connect to the Internet" and some error. The Google Maps app also won't function. But the t-zones browser will work for some reason. But if I use Opera Mini first, then that'll work but nothing else will work. Does anyone know of what's up with this? So far I'm not that happy with my BB :(

From what you write, it sounds like you don't have a BlackBerry Data Plan. Iouldnt be happy either.
A BlackBerry was intended to work with a true Data Plan. Honestly, I feel anything less is chancy and sort of like at your own risk.

I've had some problems like this with some programs. The html email programs caused problems with other programs like Gmail and Google Maps. I think Yahoo Go! also caused connection problems. Cleared up when I removed those programs.

Maybe try a battery pull, followed by an OS reinstall if that doesn't work.
