Data Connection Refused? - BlackBerryFAQ

What do I need a Data Plan for? - BlackBerryFAQ

Most carrier PAYgo plans won't work on a BB for data. I don't know yours.

You need a special Blackberry Data Plan in order to get data/internet/email on a blackberry. Pay as you go won't cut it.

Does it accept your sim card?

It could have an IT policy on it. Check in Options >Security Options >General Settings. Scroll to the bottom and see if you see any reference to an IT Policy.

Then it's likely IT policy. Check for the policy as I described above.

"Disabled" is the policy name? You can't "disable" a policy. It's got to be the policy name.

Remove the policy:

Get rid of your IT policy first. Then you'll have all your phone options back.
