Default How can i download applications through GPRS?

Please Login to Remove!

I got unlocked BB bold 9000, however my operator does not have anything that would support BB. Can I update my applications through WIFI? I don't have maps! My Facebook does not work? I don't believe i have any data plan as i bought my BB as unlocked.
The operator i'm using has GPRS, can i use it to connect it in my BB? If so how, as i tried couple of times, but failed.

I would appreciate your help.

You need a BlackBerry Data Plan for those features.
If your operator does not offer one, then there's nothing you can do but switch to a new operator that does offer one.

Also a carrier is an operator, or network.
Please input this into your profile, now you know what to put instead of ?!
