Default Newbie 8100 help please!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys i just got an 8100, brought secondhand but practically like new. Its on the orange network so i just put my orange simcard in it, it works fine for text messaging and calls etc but says data connection unavailable at the top of the screen, what does this mean and how do i sort it? also has anyone got any tips on how to set this thing up, best applications etc?

I realise these questions are probably so old hat for you guys but all help really is appreciated.

Thanks in advance

You need to get a BlackBerry Data Plan from your carrier (Orange).
Once that's provisioned on your account, you should visit Main Page - for tips on starting out.
