I am in Nigeria, my carrier..Glo mobile ask me to pay for BB services. I do not want to do that, it is costly. But I want to use my BB to browse the internet. I have downloaded Opera on to my BB (through my Laptop). but it does not launch the setup file. Help guys, what do I need. I also got the browser settings from my carrier, but it will not save on my BB. help guys... I have not being able to input the browser settings too.

Welcome to the forums!

Interent access does require a BlackBerry data plan, unless your device is capable of wifi. Unfortunately the Storm doesn't have that capabailty.

Thank you for your response...
I do not have a BB plan... as I mentioned in my post, it is too expensive to maintain a BB plan.. I understand users with other variants of BB can browse without the BB plan.... maybe if I get a direction on how to install Opera mini or other BB browsers I will get by.
Thank you guys.

Thank you guys.
The workaround is carrier dependent, and may not work with your provider. That is the reason that workarounds are not recommended. If you get a BlackBerry data plan, your device WILL function properly.

My feeling is that if you can afford to buy a $500 phone, you should be able afford the right tariff.
