    Tom - go to. Options > arrange applications... And see if the browser icon is showing as hidden (dimmed)

    Tom768, Welcome to PinStack.

    Have you activated a Blackberry data plan for your account? I'm not sure about TMO, but you may have to create a BIS webaccount and add your BB IMEI and PIN so that the Network knows that your BB is on it. Do you have an Icon that titled Personal Email Setup? That might be where you have to go.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Hi Rcbjr,

    Thanks for the reply. I just add the BB unlimited Add On to my voice plan. It probably has not been activated yet. Does T-Mobile send any messages to let you know when it is activate? My BB does not have the Personal Email Setup icon like you had described.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    I don't know how TMO works with a New Activation. I can't really help. You may get a notification or not.

    Try re-activating your account and eventually you will receive a confirmation email and your browser should show up in the menu.

    Hope this helped,

    After I set up email account in BIS, and at the sametime my data plan got activated, and now the browser plus a my email for tmo.blackberry.net icons showed up on my phone. The T-mobile data plan is amazingly fast! Thanks guys for all the helps. This is the best site for the blackberry period.

    Jeanca, Welcome to PinStack.

    Have you set up your BIS account? Look for an Icon called Personal Email Setup. Click on that and create your account. You may need to enter your IMEI and PIN unless they are automatically entered.

    You say that you don't have a Host Routing Table? Go to Options/Advanced Options and look for the Host Routing Table entry. If you are still using the Cingular Theme, it might be under Settings/Option/Advanced Options.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    When I got my T-moble blackberry Pearl. No of that was there. I was like what? but when it syncs T-mobile the icons start apearing. Even for my fav 5. I think it sends info to the pearl and unlocks the software then it shows up. or it auto installs it in the background.

    opera mini is all i use. Unless im checking my useage

    I got the same problem here I use Tmobile, everything was fine at first. But when i left the country and used another SIM Card the browser icon disappeared, I can access it only by "Switch Application" option.

    Where can I get the Opera mini I would love to try it out!

    Thanks,

    Something I learned the hardway is that if you turn data off when roaming. All data services stop working even if you're not roaming
