Default Pay as you go help!

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone,

Got a wee problem, I have just bought a new unopened Blackberry 8100 Pearl which is locked on 02. I already have an Uk Pay as you go 02 sim card which i want to continue to use.

Everything is fine, apart from, at the top of the screen its says that 'Data Connection refused' wonder what this means.

Also I cant set up an email address or browse the web, any ideas how i can go about it, tried the 02 site but everything relates to the pay monthly tarriffs!

Hope you's can help!

Cheers Graeme

Data connection refused is because you need but do not have a BB plan. Without it you can only make calls and SMS. No email, MMS, or web browsing.

Sounds like more than a wee problem to me! Graeme, what they say is true...
