Default setting up medianet/internet/mms on the Kickstart?

Please Login to Remove!

hey everyone
i just bought the kickstart off ebay and it is unlocked. However, i cannot download ringtones, wallpapers or access the internet. I have service with At&t, and was wondering how i could go about getting the ability to access the internet and ringtones. I was coming from the iphone and i think i do have an iphone plan on my account, do i need to switch plans? and if so, what phone do i tell them to switch my plan to? i am not sure they will allow me to use the kickstart as a phone as it is not an At&t phone.

please let me know as i dont want to be stuck with a useless phone

thank you very much

Yes you will need a Blackberry data plan. There is an unlimited BB data plan for $30 with AT&T. Provide them with your PIN and IMEI numbers.

After you get the BB data plan, See my post below on making email and MMS work on the 8220 using AT&T.
