Default Embarrassing question from newbie

Please Login to Remove!

I have an 8707 that I thought was unlocked. I put in my SIM card and the phone and SMS work fine, but it says "data connection refused" I had my simcard in a Nokia 3109 Classic and had no problem accessing the internet. Does anyone know what the issue is? Please help.

Thanks

You need a blackberry data plan it sounds like...not just a generic internet plan you would have had with your other phone...

is there anyway to use the internet plan i had with the old phone. I want the blackberry for more of an organizer and ease of sms. I will get gmail added to it if i can get the internet to work.

Without an appropriate data plan, you are bit limited. No dumb questions here.

Interesting, i would think that the internet functions would carry over to the blackberry, but i guess not. Oh well, but its not locked though right?

Nope; if it was locked, voice and SMS wouldn't work.
