    Dear Socergk,

    I had the same prolbem! Thats because you dont have a data plan. It got annoying after awhile so i call AT&T and the told me how to stop it and this is how it goes...

    1. Main Menu
    2. Options
    3. Mobile Network
    4. Data Services (change to OFF)
    5. Restart Phone

    P>S> Let me know if that worked fro you.

    I cant afford a data plan now. If I turn the data services off, will my text messages work? I am just curious to why it just changed and the data service is switched to on right now

    Yes you will recieve text messages and mms messages. I have unlimited text and picture and I can still recieve messages. Did you turn DATA SERVICES OFF? If you did, did it stop saying "DATA CONNECTION REFUSED"? The reason it is switched on from default, is that when people buy the Pearl they usally buy the 29.99 Blackberry Data Plan. I am a cheap skate so I just stick with pay per use! A blackberry is capable of a million things.!

    Send me a message letting me know if you tried it.
