Do you have a blackberry data plan? That is, blackberry specific data service on your mobile service account?

Take a look at How to use BlackBerry on Generic Data Plan - BlackBerryFAQ .

You need a blackberry data plan to connect to the blackberry/RIM system and use blackberry applications that use data. This would be the blackberry internet browser, messaging (push email, PIN and blackberry messenger).

EDIT: You'll also probably want the info at http://blackberryfaq.com/index.php/W...PN_settings%3F.

But advise you know how you are paying for data. Paying per kB can add up fast.

Alright, thanks. I still think that I'll need to type in my gateway ip and port somewhere on the phone, even though I'm using a generic data plan, right? Do you know where I can do that, I don't think it'll work by just changing the APN.

No. See the link I posted. There is no way to do what you are thinking.

APN: halebop.telia.se
Username: Leave empty
Password: Leave empty
WAP-Gateway adress: 10.254.254.254
Port: 9201 alternativley 8080

Settings for WAP via GSM:
IP-adress:010.254.254.254
Tel nummer: +46 705960301
Homepage: wap.halebop.se
Samtalstyp: ISDN (Analog if you're abroud)

Settings for GPRS:
IP-adress: 010.254.254.254
Port: 9201
Carrier: GPRS
APN: halebop.telia.se
Homepage: wap.halebop.se

I can't tell if you are being sarcastic, or agreeing with me now.

Ok.

Note, you will not be able to use the blackberry internet browser. Did you install a third-party browser such as opera mini?
