Default Enabling the WAP Browser [UK user]

Please Login to Remove!

I bought a Blackberry 7100x off Ebay the other day. I added my sim card into it and everything works fine except there is no browser for the internet feature. Now i'm an O2 user and it's a Pay As You Go sim card that i use so i'm thinking that's the problem, and that i need to now pay some sort of monthly tariff to get the WAP feature. The reason why i used Pay As You Go in the past was mainly because i don't make many phonecalls and use it more for texting so Pay As You Go was a safe option for me. Plus i kinda wanted to keep the same sim card simply because it's less hassle and it mans i get to keep the same phone number.

So is that the problem? Or can i still have a Pay As You Go sim card and use WAP? I'm a bit clueless at the moment as i only just received the phone today so any help would be really appreciated. Does anyone know what the cheapest deal would be because all i'm really gonna be doing is texting and accessing the WAP feature.

Thanks in advance.

You have to have a BB data plan for internet access, and I don't know of any carrier that allows setting up the BB data plan with a Pay as you Go phone accnt. Remember, No BB Plan = No Data Service!

Hope this helps.
