Default Orange Internet Help

Please Login to Remove!

I suppose there are loads of these threads but i couldn't find one which really solved my problem

today i bought a blackberry BlackBerry Curve 8520 and was wondering how do i connect to the internet not using my wireless router???

i sent a texted OW to 247 to still no reply

and also when ever i try to connect to a web page it says this is a wi-fi service please ensure your device has an active wi-fi connection

Same question - do you have the BlackBerry Data Plan on your account. Orange may call it something different. Not a plain Internet plan - a BlackBerry plan.

Right - that's the BlackBerry piece. Until you add that, no App World.

free internet and email does NOT apply to blackberry devices.
You NEED the extra 5 blackberry add-on.
