If you have a data plan you should see GPRS or EDGE all in capital letters (top right cornor of the BB). If it's not in caps you are not connected for data.
To set up the Bluetooth you have to pair the device with the Pearl. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to set the device (GPS "puck"?) into pairing mode and make a note of the "code" to authorize the pairing (frequently 0000), then press the Menu button on your Pearl and scroll through the list till you find the TWO Bluetooth icons. Click on the one that says Set Up Bluetooth. It will pop up a message "Please ensure your Bluetooth device is in pairing mode." Click "Ok". It will search for any nearby devices. If it says "No new devices found" make sure that your devices is charged, on, and in pairing mode, and within 30 feet, then try again.
If that doesn't work, holler back in here and someone will help you sort it all out.
