Default 7105 with Cingular-Internet help

Please Login to Remove!

Hello. I have a 7105. I am using the Cingluar Network with it. I have the current version of the OS installed. My problem is I have no internet browswer to access. My phone says the Blackberry Browswer is installed, but there is no icon on my phone for a browser and I can see no way to access it. I have pay per use internet on my cingular account. I don't want blackberry service at this time, just want to be able to access the net. How do I get my browser on my phone? What do I have to do? Also, there is something on my phone that says Enterprise Activation. If you click it it asks for email and password. I don't know what this is either. Please help.

Thanks,
Michael

mrmonk, ignore the Enterprise Activation, you don't need that.

If you don't have a Blackberry Data Plan, you won't have internet browsing.

Wow. Is there a way I can install some kind of browser to use the internet like you can on normal phones? Isn't there some kind of free browser or something that people use?

Why would you expect it be free, if Cingular were charging for it?

You can try to install Opera Mini. You might be able to get it to work via the TCP settings, some have mentioned on here they have succeeded, I don't know about on Cingular in particular.

I dont understand. I don't expect the internet to be free, I just expect to be able to get on the internet like you can with every other cingular phone. I am just trying to get access to a web browser, not trying to get free internet. does that make sense? On almost all cingular phones you can use AIM and the internet, you just have to pay per KB of data or you can get their internet plan for $15-$30 depending on type. Thanks for the help. Hope I am making sense.

Yes, your questions make sense, it has been asked on this board several times each day. Please understand, your BB is not "almost all cingular phones", it is quite different.

Your browser is not there, because you have not activated the phone on the BB Data Plan. It won't be there until you do so, and at that time a "service book" will be sent down to enable the browser.

Ok, so basically what you are telling me is it is impossible to use the internet with a Blackberry unless I pay for Blackberry Service, which is $40 a month with cingular. I don't understand this. Is there a way to get the service book without the blackberry service. I don't need the blackberry service, just the internet occassionaly.

No, I am not telling you that. Your service provider Cingular is telling you that. My intent here was to help you "understand" what they are telling you.

Besides, I think I recall I made a very valid suggestion (Opera Mini) you might try, but it appears you have ignored that in favor or arguing a moot point.

You cannot get the service books for free. They come upon purchasing your Blackberry Data Plan. That is just the way it works, if you don't like it, take it up with Cingular.

I am not arguing at all, sorry you took my reply to be as such. I have no clue about service books or any of this stuff, which is why I am confused. I am used to getting a phone and clicking on a browser for internet. This is my first BB and I know nothing about them. I was not ignoring your suggestion about mini, just clarifying further what you were explaining to me because I did not fully understand it. Thanks for the help, but there is no argument from me, just trying to learn.

I really don't think it will work... but try it and see.
Download Opera Mini on your PC, use Desktop Manager to open Application Loader, install Opera Mini on your BB.

On your BB: Options > Advanced > TCP
APN: wap.cingular
Username:WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
Password: CINGULAR1

If that doesn't work, sorry, I don't know anything else.
