Please answer the following questions, and then search for your answer:

1. In what country are you located?
2. Who is your service provider?
3. Do you have a BlackBerry data plan from your provider?

The location where settings should be entered can be found in your manual. If you do not have the manual, you can find it by searching the forums or google.com.

Blackberryies require a APN address, username and password.
This is the only data oyu can input.

If your carrier doesn't have such things, theres nothing you can do.
Except perhaps get a blackberry data plan; or a different phone.

I think the carriers require the data plan to keep the maps updated as the GPS does the tracking so I would think the data plan is required. I donxxx8217;t know of any software that could fit on the BB with the necessary maps to keep up without internet access movement updates.. I have a GPS mapping software on my PC also and itxxx8217;s about 2 gig, a bit more than the BB can store. Maybe there are smaller size programs but I cannot find one.

Not all networks require you to input a username and password,for many service providers these fields are left blank.

Quick IM have a list of 100s of networks around the world and the tcp settings for them that can be found here should any members need the settings for their carrier and the OP may well find that his provider does not require a username and password just the APN.

No, those applications require a blackberry data plan.
And will NOT work without it.
