The default is to your preferred mobile network, but you can adjust this. Go to Options>Mobile Network. Under "Connection Preferemce", there are four choices:

Mobile Network Only.
Mobile Network Preferred.
Wi-FI Only.
Wi-Fi Preferred.

Select the preference you want and Save.
1st Step in Troubleshooting: Do you have a BlackBerry Data Plan?
2nd Step in Troubleshooting: Pull the Battery.
