    Just bought phone... No internet?

    Advertisement



    I just bought the pearl from my friend who is a t-mobile user. He unlocked the phone but couldnt get the phone to use internet... So as a A t&T user i bought the phone from him. But...when i look at the menu there is no little globe (internet application). Also it would not let me create an email... What do i do about this? Any help would be great!

    You need to get a data plan from AT&T. So then you will be able to get the browser and get email

    You need a separate Blackberry Data Plan in order to use the internet and email. Contact AT&T customer care and they can set you up with one.

    Also, be sure the old T-Mobile APN items aren't still populated in the TCP menu (under advanced options).

    When they set you up, they should have informed you that it takes up to 4 days to initate a full blackberry data plan.

    When I ordered my blackberry from T-Mobile, they set me up the same day they placed the order, so I'd be ready when it arrived. Wait a few days, and it should be good.

    Had the same problem you are experiencing all because when I called customer care, the rep that was helping me added a PDA plan instead of a BB plan...I didn't know that ATT is NOT 24 hours like TMo, so I had to wait til' the next day to get my BB working correctly and have a browser icon. Hope all works out for you.

    4 days? Why does Att take so long? I got the internet working in less than 2 hours when I set it up with tmo.
    Try resending service books.
    Options>advanced options>host routing table>menu* register
