    Who are you using? TMobile? AT&T? Some more info would help. Not sure what's wrong. You mean that you get data for about an hour and then it drops you off? Do you have a program accessing the net every hour or so? Could it be that the program is causing you to get booted?

    Do you have a data plan?

    Re: HELP!!!!! Data connection refused

    Ok, i forgot to mention.. I'm from Trinidad and tobago, the phones were orinally t-mobile and unlocked through a service on ebay. when i got the unlock codes there were 2 sets of codes one with my imei code and another i dont know about. is it posible that the next code was supposed to be used also?

    I dont have a data plan as yet but cant the phones be used without the data service? because my dad has one without the data service and it works fine. but my own after about an hour of geting phone service the phone just drops off the network and then five minutes later restarts itself. i am so lost i just feel like throwing it away.

    HELP!!!!!

    Re: HELP!!!!! Data connection refused

    Cant comment on the 2 unlock codes but you can verfiy your unlock status as follows:

    1. On your BlackBerry, go to Options > Advanced Options > Sim Card.
    2. At that screen type MEPD (see note below) on your keyboard. A new menu will pop up.
    **If your BlackBerry has a SureType keyboard (71xx and 81xx devices) you will need to double-tap the P, so the actual keys entered become M E P P D.
    3. Look for Network in the list.
    4. If your device is "unlocked", it should say Disabled or Inactive. If it says Active, it's still locked to that carrier.

    Now I would guess that without a data plan you will not get data service, even in T&T, hence the connection refused message (typical on BB with no data plan). However you are correct, if your phone is unlocked and you have inserted a valid SIM card you should be able to use the phone.

    The network is diabled. the problem is that even when i inserted a valid sim card it dropped off the network after an hour.
    i was told that it may need to be flashed. Now I'm Lost! What is this flashing about. do you think i need to flash the phone.if yes, How is it done?

    Re: HELP!!!!! Data connection refused

    options -> advanced options -> TCP.

    set you carrier APN settings,
    For example I have:
    APN: telenor
    APN Username: my phone nr
    APN Pass: my phone nr

    I always get data connection refused when using a non blackberry supported sim card / carrier.

    If you have a data plan and a carrier that support blackberry devices. Log on to their sites. I.E: trigcom.blackberry.com , register your device with pin and IMEI. And resend your config from that site.

    You can also try to register the device again. Options -> advanced -> Host routing table. Menu key and hit "register device".

    When you say dropped of the network, are you talking about Voice or Data? Can you make phone calls alright?
