Hi all BB users,

Welcome to the forums!

Here is some information for you. I am not familiar with your plan but it should be relevant.

You will not have the BlackBerry Browser without a BlackBerry Data Plan. You could try Opera Mini. Opera Mini - Download

Go thru this FAQ: How to use BlackBerry on Generic Data Plan - BlackBerryFAQ

Basically, any proxy-less data plan works fine unless you require push email. I am not very familiar with Bold but something similar to Curve must exist in Bold too. If it was a curve and I had a generic data plan I would do this..

Options>Advanced Options>TCP>APN

Now here you may have to try a variety of options to have the thing work... possible values for APN:- (Try them in the sequence listed)

1) epc.tmobile.com
2) wap.voicestream.com
3) internet2.voicestream.com

After each change you may have to Soft Reset your Bold.
