Default Can't connect to Browser

Please Login to Remove!

I have a data plan from Verizon Wireless.

I try to use the browser on my phone but it isn't working...

Then it says it cannot connect to the internet.

Is there some special thing I have to put in?

Do I have to call Verizon Wireless for provision for my phone?

Thanks!

RIM Blackberry Pearl 8130.

Do you have a data plan or a BlackBerry data plan?

Try doing a battery pull with the phone powered on and let us know. Did you just get the phone? Also you may need to get your service books resent.

Yes I just got my phone yesterday and we just switched plans. Well my family was on a plan before that didn't have a blackberry plan with it. Then we switched last night and it got approved this morning but I still can't go on browser. I will do what you just said. :] I'll report back in a minute. Thanks!

Provisioning sometimes takes up to 24 hours. You may want to call and check the status.

To load the regular Yahoo page for me is about 30 to 45 seconds to load the mobile site about 10 seconds.


I would call your carrier and verify it is provisioned before you go much farther.
