Default Data connection Refused

Please Login to Remove!

I unlocked my phone.. but I get:

Data Connection refused

& Text Message: 453 Error Invalid Number. Please re-send using a valid 10 digit mobile number. and then a bunch of numbers.

What happened?

I put in my Cingular SIM card and it should have worked.

Help please!

Data Connection Refused usually means that you do not have BlackBerry Data Plan on your account. Mediaworks or GPRS data plans don't work - it has to be a BlackBerry Data Plan. If you've had Cingular add it already, contact them to check. Without a BlackBerry Data Plan all you have is voice and SMS.

Alright, thank you! Wish Cingular's site was not under maintenance so I could look into this!

You are probably going to have to call them in the end...
