Unhappy Great comedy for techno wizards from a tech challenged wannabe curve user

Please Login to Remove!

I have an unlocked 8300 that I would like to use with my cellular provider (XIT Wireless). They don't support BB. The phone works great but I don't have the 1st email option in setup nor do I have the web browser icon unless I go thru switch apps and then it tells me I should contact my provider to for Browser Config Service Book Entries. Can I make the email and web work?

Thanks,
MBezner

RIM, the maker of Your Blackberry intended you to pay for a Blackberry data plan to use it. Without a Blackbery data plan you have phone, pda and might be able to do some SMS but no internet or email without data.

I am fine with paying for a data plan, is it a possibility with cellular provider that doesn't support Blackberry.

Cellular provider would have to have a BB plan, not a data plan. The BB plan is different. It allows your device to be in constant contact with the network. With it you can email, MMS, and surf the web. Without a BB plan you can only call and SMS.
