My dad borrowed a blackberry curve 8900 off a friend while his was getting sorted as he broke it, once his was fixed he didnt need it anymore and gave it to me! So in all my excitment i put my normal vodafone pay as you go sim card in and it works as in i recieve calls and texts however i am not able to access the internet! I did some research and relised it was because i was not on the blackberry interent thing tried to register account and entered the status details of the phone and it said it was disabled or ended and to contact my service provider,im guessing this was because the person who owned the phone before got a new one?
Anyhelp given would be appreciated i know i shouldnt of just jumped into it without fully understanding how a blackberry works! i was just really excited! I also wanted to know if i went into vodafone and asked them to help would they be able to because the handset itsnt actually mine? but was given to me?

You need a blackberry internet service plan on your account.
Without it, it won't let you register on the site you mention.

Vodafone do not offer these plans on PAYG.
