Default Setting up internet.

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, I just added the unlimited booster to my T-Mobile contract (5 a month) and I added the APN settings into my phone, but the browser still tells me that it is a wi-fi service? This may be because it is a lloyds blackberry (my dad was given to it by lloyds but her just got a storm so her gave me his 8900) and apparently it has some sort of hardware locks on it, but I'm not certain. Any help?

EDIT: just tried it in my old iPhone with the same setting, still tells me it cannot connect to the internet.

EDIT: EDIT: I believe it is on 4.7 but ill have to check, am currently missing a usb cable for it, is there anyway to update directly from the memory card inside it (the micro SD one)

Is this a blackberry internet plan? You must have a BB plan for BB related services to work.

You need the Blackberry Booster AND an unlimited internet booster/included within the plan internet for it to work correctly on T-mobile UK.

Blackberry booster covers only email data (but makes all internet use possible)
internet booster covers all internet data and any apps that use data.

Internet booster will not work without the Blackberry booster.
Blackberry booster only will cost you for using the internet.
