    Connecting to internet

    Hey guys,

    I have a tmobile blackberry pearl and I go the 5.99 Tmobile web plan. I downloaded googlemaps and gmail software from the tzones web browser. However when I try to access it, an internet connection can't be found.

    My tzones web browswer works fine, but none of the other stuff needing an internet connection works.
    Please Help!!.. I think this should work.. shouldn't it??

    Thanks

    Have you set your APN yet?

    <Settings> <Advanced Options> <TCP>

    Set your APN to : wap.voicestream.com

    Save, Battery Pull, and try it again.

    So then is the 5.99 web plan pretty much useless?

    I've tried setting my tcp settings and doing the battery pull. Done it a few times, still have the same issue.

    Yes, many have tried and failed to use the $5.99 plan as a work around but BB is an entirely different animal. Without a BB data plan you will not have data access...sorry.

    I read on a different forum that there is something called the 'blackberry feature enabler' that lets you have that wap access. Have any of you heard of that?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~The 5.99 plan is really for tzones and that's about it.

    actually it is possible to use the 5.99 plan and use opera mini as a browser. so if you dont need push email the 5.99 plan is your best bet. I also have been told you can use it for google apps like gmail and google maps. i am going to see how that works out.
