Ok I had just bought my black berry pearl 4 days ago. Recently I had also bought the plan t-mobile web for my black berry so i can surf the net. I just installed google maps, but when i click on the icon it does nothing my blackberry pearl dosent seem to crash cause i can still scroll around, but when i click on google maps it dosent run. Also when i try to use programs that connect to the net (ex. info space Find It! or weather programs) it can connect to the net. but i bought the t-mobile web pan for and extra 5.99. the only thing i could do is surf the net, but the programs that need to use the net wont work. I even edited application permissions to be allowed to use the net.
Can some one please tell me what im doing wrong?

Also if this helps my phone always shows edge, but it wont show EDGE

you do not have a BB plan, that is why you show edge not EDGE. you *might* be able to get some apps to work, go into options > advanced > tcp > set the apn to wap.voicestream.com and leave the username and password blank. save that, and then try and use the apps. you really are crippling your device by not getting a BB data plan. its $20 for unlimited web and email, and you will be using your device as it was intended, not as a glorified organizer/phone (ala palm)
