    8707g browser problem

    Advertisement



    hey guys

    i m new here and to the the bb. so pls be patient with me!

    theres no icon for the browser on my bb.i heard that the icon wont show up unless you have a data plan...do they mean a bb data plan? or a standard 3G plan?

    i am still on 2G sim card and i wonder if i switch to a 3G sim card, the browser wld pop up?

    i have no intentions of getting a bb data plan as of yet. so is there a way to enable the browser?

    It depends. If your carrier reqires a data plan, most likely they did not transmit the service book to you. However if they do a pay per use, then you may need to accept the books. However, I do not think it is wise to use pay per use, even the littlest downloads will cost you big

    well most of the service provider has a different data plan for blackberry handhelds.... and i guess unless u subscribe to the data plan the internet browser wont be pushed on to ur handheld..and i think that there is no need for a blackberry unless u subscribe and make full use of the data plan...!!

    rvdran, Welcome to PinStack.

    As far as I know, there is no way to get the Internet Browser with out a Blackberry Data Plan. Blackberry Devices require access to the RIM Data network to access and data service. Without the BlackBerry data plan you are limited to standard cell phone service and a limited PIM.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    With no intention of ever getting a BlackBerry Data Plan, I'm slightly surprised that anyone would suggest a BlackBerry to you to begin with.

    A BlackBerry without a BlackBerry Data Plan is kind of pointless. It's just another phone then, and an expensive phone at that.
