Is it a true BB data plan, not a generic one? If it was a BB data plan then the service books would have been sent and the BB browser would appeared. Ask Fido to resend the service books.

Is there an IT Policy on the device by any chance?

Do you have a Blackberry dataplan? It sounds like you have generic one which will not work.

What do I need a Data Plan for? - BlackBerryFAQ

If the device was on a corporate BES, there could be an IT Policy controlling what you can and cannot do with the device.

Did you look at the links Dubdub posted above? You need to answer those question if anyone is going to be able to help you.

And here's another one you may need to look at:

You have a generic data plan. Get a BB data plan and your problems should be solved. That is the bottom line and the solution.
