Default Internet Woes...Can someone help?

Please Login to Remove!

I am having trouble running anything that wasn't already installed on the device. I try ramble and I get tunneling errors. I try opera and it says I'm not connected to a network (I am) and I try texas Hold Em' multiplayer and that can't connect. The only thing that can connect is the T-Mbile browser and TZones. Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

Do you have a BlackBerry Data Plan on your account? Does your BB show EDGE or GPRS in the upper right hand corner.

Do you have your APN set to wap.voicestream.com?

I am having the same issue with my 8700g. I have added the "wap.voicestream.com" I still can not get any IP/TCP application to work. Only my browser works and email. T-Zones and Setup internet email do not work. I keep getting the message.

"Unable to open a POP Context to the following APN

wap.voicestream.com

This may be happening because the currently selected browser configuration is not compatible with the current network."

Again I have wap.voicestream.com set in my TCP properties. My TMO account is set up for BIS/BES.

Not everyone needs this configuration.

You may want to resend service books from BIS webpage, for T-mo it's http://my.t-mobile.com.
