Do you mean APN settings?
What are the TCP and APN settings? - BlackBerryFAQ

I found this...

Carrier Internet Settings @ Pinstack

This found, it mentions making changes through Options -> TCP, but I do not have that option on my US Cellular 8330m.

I dont think you can configure DNS. You can only set the APN. For Tmobile it's either: wap.voicestream, internet2.voicestream.com, or I've even seen internet3.voicestream.com

Nope, I don't have that either. This may be something that only folks who have BES setup can do. I'm on BIS.

From what I could gather, there is no native way to access DNS settings. Yes, I would assume that they are there somewhere, but it may require something like QPST to get you there.

I don't have BIS and can access options/advanced/TCP. That's strange you don't have it on yours.

You don't have BIS (meaning that you have BES) and I do. That is probably the difference.

You access network services using BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES), and I access net services using BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS). That's the difference.

Nope, I don't have BES either. I don't have a data plan at the moment.
