Default Trouble with Browsing

Please Login to Remove!

hi friends,
I got a Curve 8520. Using BSNL (India) prepaid network. Got GPRS activated. They have confirmed it as it shows 'edge' on the screen.
I can browse on the laptop using the handheld as a modem.
The issue is whenever I try to browse from the handheld, it says its a Wi-Fi device and no active Wi-Fi connection is available. the browser is not working.. so are the IMs. Looks like it works only on Wi-Fi... I have no clue what to do...
pls help
thnx in advance..

You need a BB data plan. To use the Internet and other BB related features, it must say EDGE (all caps), not "edge". Does your carrier support BBs?
