One thing you will have to do is provide more information if you want help. Simply saying "it doesn't work" or "there was an error" is not helpful at all.

what happened when you tried?
what exactly was the error?
did you follow the sticky thread at the top of this forum?
do you have a blackberry data plan?
The Search tool and BlackBerryFAQ answer many questions.
