Default How can I allow applications to access the internet?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi. I just recently bought my first Blackberry (8320 Curve on T-Mobile) and I'm having some trouble with the internet, very likely stemming from my noobishness on the subject. I can't really afford the 20 dollar per month data plan, so I currently have the $5.99 unlimited WAP browsing plan. This lets me go to any web site, but I was wondering if there's any way to allow applications like JiveTalk to feed off this same connection.

This post intrigued me. It sounds like exactly what I need, but I haven't been able to get it to work. I called a T-Mobile representative and was told (by 3 different people) that such a workaround doesn't exist. Are the people in that thread all using the more expensive full data plan to do this?

Also this thread is on a similar subject:
BlackBerry Internet - MSN/chat/web/telnet/TCPIP - No BES!

Thanks in advance for the help!

That is your problem. You need the BB dataplan.

Not meaning to be rude, but why did you spend all that money on a BB and not get a BB dataplan? You will not be satisfied with the performance and capabilities of the BB without it.

Actually I got it as a gift. I can live with just simple web browsing, I just wanted to see if the thread I linked could offer a solution.

Did you try adding the following to Options >Advanced Options >TCP:

apn:wap.voicestream.com
username
password

leave username and password blank.

If it still doesn't work after that there is nothing you can do. The 5.99 web plan won't work.

Yeah, it had that configuration by default. internet2.voicestream.com also seems to work as the APN, but with no noticeable difference. Guess I'm just SOL without the full data plan. Thanks for the reply.
