Default Problems with internet, no BES ?

Please Login to Remove!

Got my 2nd Blackberry wich is a Bold 9700...

I am really disappointed that i am unable to surf the web via GPRS/3G, since my provider doesn't have a BES, is there no way of manually setting up the phone so i can use the internet where i am unable to hook up to a WiFi ?

Or get a regular data plan and use opera mini

Do you have a BB data plan? Or are you saying that your carrier doesn't support BBs? You do not need BES to use the BB, you just need a properly activated BB data plan.

If your carrier doesn't offer that, then you are very limited in what you can do on a generic data plan.

From our FAQ: How to use BlackBerry on Generic Data Plan - BlackBerryFAQ
