But if it's saying "data connection refused" then that might have answered everything or it's just not activated yet.
Actually you can upload pictures via Desktop Manager with some third-party software. For example, Berry Pix v2.0 does upload of pics via Desktop Manager's Intellisync feature. If you just want to get a few pics onto your BlackBerry, you could use the free 7-day trial of Berry Pix v2.0 to load them to your BlackBerry and then use its "preview picture" feature to save the picture to your built-in BlackBerry photo app.
Of course, after 7-days is up, you won't be able to add any more pictures using Berry Pix or use the "preview picture" feature to save them to the built-in picture app...
As for the Data connection refused, you will need to contact your carrier about that one or visit one of your carrier's "pop-stands" etc to make sure your phone's account is configured for data.
I hope this helps!
