Where did you get the BB? If it was used, such as off of eBay, it could have an existing IT policy on it that will not allow it to connect.

Likewise, since you don't have the BB Data Plan, you will not be able use the browser. You might be able to get Opera Mini to work.

eBay should not allowed to sell BB. I hope you leave appropriate feedback with your seller.

Follow the instructions exactly as posted and you will be cool.
