Default Bb Bold & Tmobile!!!???

Please Login to Remove!

Hey there all whas happenin?? so i have a BOLD (at&t unlocked) that im using on tmobile service... everything is going great the phone is amazing (compared to the curve which i luv) the messenger works awsome etc....

heres the thing... tmobile doesnt have the "service books" for the bold yet, because of this i can only use the browser through wifi... in the browser options i cant change the browser off of "hotspot browser" to internet browser (it simply doesnt have the option).. however when i turn off the wifi google maps works perfectly all just of the tmobile service (which i was told it wouldnt)... also (with the wifi still off) the opera mini browser (a 3rd party browser i downloaded to test) works, its just a crap browser and the pages load with words on top of words etc...

can anyone help with this or have any ideas?????
thanx a mill

You cant do it on a mac, unless you have a windows install on there along side OSX. RIM's mac support is terrible.
