Hi new to the forums and the black berry, just got my pearl flip two days ago.
Im on tmobile with no data plan and Ive been trying to access the internet.
I have been looking all over the forums for a way to connect I changed my tcp to wap.voicestream.com and changed the browser from tmobile to hotspot and i keep getting an error unable to find requested server when i try to go to websites. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Not sure about T-Mo, but some carriers require you to have a BB dataplan for WiFi access.

From the FAQ:

WiFi on BlackBerrys- General Questions - BlackBerryFAQ

How do I set up Wifi on the BlackBerry? - BlackBerryFAQ

In order to use WiFi at home or at a hotspot (the same Wifi a laptop uses) you will need to enable WiFi, go to Manage Connection and check the box next to WiFi.
