First of all who is your carrier?
1. Since you have an ATT/Cingular 8800 and it is most likely locked (hence the invalid SIM), you need to activate the BB with ATT and have it provisioned.
You also need to have a BB dataplan (hence the data connection refused).
If you are not going to use ATT as your carrier, then you need to unlock the BB and then get it activated and provisioned and get a data plan from your selected carrier.
2. BIS comes with the BB dataplan. You carrier can provide you the link to the website to set it up.
3. Read the users manual that came with the BB.
