Welcome to the forums!

Does your phone provider provide BlackBerry data plans? The reason you are having trouble is because a BlackBerry data plan is not provisioned on your account. If your phone provider does provide BlackBerry data plans you will need to sign up for one.

To get the most out of the BlackBerry I recommend a BlackBerry data plan. However, that is your call. If it fits in your budget then go for it.
