Default Need a browser for an "unlocked phone"

Please Login to Remove!

I bought a refurbished 8700g that does not have a browser, hence, I do not have internet access. I have worked with my ISP/phone co. Suncom, to no avail. Anyone have any ideas as to how I can download a browser on this T-Mobile phone?

AFAIK you need to have the Data package used by your carrier, if you don't have it all you have is a nice phone.
Good luck

You must have a BlackBerry Data Plan on your account; not just a data package - in order to use e-mail. Some people have reported being able to use Opera Mini with a GPRS data plan.
