Welcome to the BBForums.

You will need a BIS acccount/BlackBerry Data Plan for full internet, browser and email capability.

Welcome to BBF.

You can't use a standard gprs data plan on the Blackberry for BIS.

You need to call your carrier and have them add a "Blackberry Data Plan." Once that plan is added you will have BIS access.

Welcome to the forums manticon! Ok, deep breath...

If you have a data plan but not a BB Data Plan BIS/BES this is the place to start. (You will not be able to use the native BB Browser without a BIS or BES plan but you can use 3rd party browsers)

Good Luck!

Please read above. Do you have a "Blackberry data plan?". You MUST have a blackberry data plan. A gprs plan WILL NoT work!!

Again, in case this was missed:

Do you have a BlackBerry Data Plan

Not an unlimited data plan or an Internet plan - a BlackBerry Data Plan
