Welcome to the forums. You will need a BlackBerry data plan. This is different than a generic data plan.

Here are some links that will help clarify further:

No BB data plan = no browser on the BB.

If you have a data plan and no browser icon, go to options, advanced options, host routing table, menu and register now.

Have you created a BIS account? From the BIS you can manually push Service Books to your device as well.

I'm sorry if I don't fully understand all the terms and uses, but how do I do the above suggested?

Why dont you call your carrier and have them manually push the service books to your device?

Company plan, my phone. They don't want to pay the extra fees for the full blackberry service; neither do I.

True is: I have a personal Palm/PDA/Phone (Samsung I300; like very much) thru Sprint, but company gave my cheap Nextel for work (direct connect and cell). I now want to consolidate them into one (sucks having 2 phones), and what's better than having the company pay for my phone use. Hence my dilemma.

No BlackBerry plan = no BlackBerry services. Period.

Unfortunately there is no way around that without the plan you can not have the desired service books.
