The fact that you can make/receive calls means that the phone is unlocked. It was locked to Orange's network, so you will see the Orange branding on the phone. You can get rid of it if its that much of a bother, but I wouldn't recommend you go through the process. The branding image does nothing to the phone.

You need a data plan from network 3 in order to get your e-mails and access the Internet.

I thought network 3 was a carrier. You mentioned it in your post so I figured it was the name of a carrier.

If it is a carrier, then from any of their business stores. If its not, then I would like to know why you mentioned it and what's its significance.

Hi again, sorry i'm a bit confused! Thanks for your answers.

To keep it simple, I have a plan with 3, which includes unlimited internet access, and have transferred the SIM card from a Nokia to the Blackberry. The phone was originally locked to O2 not Orange.

Is it that i need to request different internet settings? I have just spoken to 3 and they didn't seem to know the answer either.

You will need a BlackBerry Data Plan. You could use Opera Mini to browse the web with your current plan.

Ok, the carrier is 3. Now if you're using your existing sim card that you had with 3 in the blackberry that you unlocked from O2, then you will be able to send/receive calls. However, the BlackBerry is a little different when it comes on to data. You will need what are called service books, to get your data going on the BlackBerry. The only way to get the service books is to ask your carrier (3) to set you up on their BlackBerry plan (providing they have one). Once you're on their BlackBerry data plan, they you will be good with data (e-mail, internet, instant messaging, streaming, etc).

Hope my explanation is clear enough and I'm actually answering your question.
