Default Can only connect to the internet via wi-fi!!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, basically i had a Samsung Tocco Ultra on contract with orange with a 500mb internet browsing bolt-on.

I couldnt get on with this phone, i actually hated it and always fancied a blackberry so i bought a 8900 from a friend and put my orange sim card into it (phone was previously on o2)

Well i am having trouble with the internet browser on it, i can connect to the internet fine via my home wifi but i cannot connect via my mobile internet, it just comes up saying "wi'fi not available".

When i go into "manage connections" it has a tick next to Mobile Network: Orange, if i go into the mobile network options data services is on, mobile network is orange and network selection mode is automatic.

What am i doing wrong?? any help greatly apreciated.

thanks

Is your carrier service books registered correctly? Or do you have a blackberry data service on the sim card?
