Hi, I'm in the UK and I'm about to receive a brand new Blackberry 8800 that is branded to Vodafone but has been unlocked.

I'm not interested in subscribing to any Blackberry plan, I just want Web access using my Asda Mobile pay as you go SIM card which allows Internet access at 20p per megabyte. Asda Mobile is a "virtual" phone network in the UK, run by the Asda supermarket chain (part of Walmart) and, ironically, uses the Vodafone network.

I've read that I will need to install Opera Mini and to set the APN to Internet.com but I'm wondering how I enter the settings which have been supplied to me by Asda Mobile and are shown below and whether there is anything else I will need to do to make the thing work?

I have had to edit the URLs in the text below as the forum software didn't seem to want to let me submit any links until I'd submitted 10 messages!!??

Thanks

Go to settings> TCP

You will not have use of push email or BB Browser, so install opera mini over your desktop manager.

I now have gmail app, maps and twitterberry working too, but it was a right hassle
