Default New to a BB

Please Login to Remove!

I recently bought a BB (7230) off ebay because it was a lot less expensive than in the shops (true it does have a few scuff marks but I can live with that) and I am having problems with the internet. I have TMobile and I updated my APN but it still says "data connection refused" after I try and send the routing data request so I can get onto the net.

Another thing is that I dont have any browser on the main screen and I have been having problems finding them on the internet, is there a place where I can get one?

Oh yea, I upgraded to 4.0 before trying all this, anything that I forgot? I could have missed something very simple because this is my first BB, i used to have just a regular phone :\

You have to have a BB plan in order to get the browser and all the functionalities working. There are several threads available just typr browser on the search button and voila!!!

Repeat: You HAVE to have a "BlackBerry Data Plan" associated with the account. Having GPRS and the APN information will not get you any data access.

With T-Mobile, the plan shouldnt be anything additional. I have their service in which I pay a flat rate for the phone service and unlimited data. Most carriers give you two spereate charges, which adds to a total, in some cases over 100. You can get 1000 minutes and unlimited data for near $60 if im not mistaken. Call them and figure out what the deal is.

Gutsy move buying a BB on ebay in my opinion. Hope it's worked out for you!
