    First off do you have a Blackberry data plan?

    No.. I don't have a data plan at all.. But my previous phones, even my Curve, had an icon and I never got that message.

    I was trying to OTA download the bphone theme and notice that I had no icon

    Well if you don't have a data plan then there is no way you can be downloading anything OTA.

    I'm not sure what to tell you. Are you sure you don't have a data plan?

    You can resend service books, but you need a data plan for that.

    You can try the instructions in this thread http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...on_issues.html
    should be #13 about resending service books.

    Thanks. I know for sure I don't have a Data plan. But I know AT&T let's you use it but charges you on a pay per use basis.

    You should check out a data plan. Its what makes a Blackberry so much cooler than a regular phone

    Data connection refused is down to the sim not connecting to the BlackBerry APN (GPRS uppercase).

    Even on GSM through AT&T you should request the IBS Service Book to be pushed to the PIN. You should then be P.A.Y.G for data.

    I would invest in a data plan, you will save a shed load of money in the short term, and loads in the long term.

    if you dont have a data plan, is there any way to hide the 'data connection refused'?

    and you can not use the messenger if you do not have a data plan correct?

    Yes you can hit it, just turn your data services off

    Options>Mobile Network>turn off.

    Obviously then you won't be able to use the data though.

    No, you cannot hide that status.

    You won't be able to use an Instant messenger as you trasmit data.I'd pay $25 per month to have everything. Will answer most of your questions.

    U know it makes sense. Good lad. The future posts we should see from you should be about browsing experience and an app you've just written :-)

    Good luck, Simon
