7250 no data plan internet browser
 
Hi, im new to this. I got a 7250 blackberry from a friend and i activated it through bell. But i didn't get the data plan. On my voice plan i have unlimited internet access am i able to view web pages with that on the blackberry? i was told i could from bell but i don't feel like calling them again.

You may need to set your TCP/APN configuration up: What are the TCP and APN settings? - BlackBerryFAQ

Not sure if it will work. It is best to get a data plan. Read about it here: What do I need a Data Plan for? - BlackBerryFAQ

For the first part of that i don't even have the TCP option. and Bell isn't listed. So why am i paying an extra 15$ a month if i can't use the internet?

Good question! I would recommend getting an unlimited BlackBerry data plan (if one is offered) as with that I believe you will be able to browse the Internet. If your carrier does not offer a data plan then I would cancel the Internet access plan.

BlackBerries communicate differently than other cell phones, and that is why the BlackBerry data plan is necessary. With the BlackBerry data plan you will get the push e-mail and Internet browsing. That is just how it is. It may not be the device for you, though.

You don't need any software. You just need a BlackBerry Data Plan provisioned on your account. Once you have a BlackBerry Data Plan, the Internet Browser icon will show up on your device.

I am trying to do the same thing.

There MUST be a way to use the internet without getting a blackberry data plan.

I can't afford it and I already have the internet feature on my phone through my cell plan.

So, instead of people saying "get a data plan" how about a few solutions instead?
