    You need a BlackBerry Data Plan from your carrier.

    You're probably getting the message "Data Connection Refused" which means you don't have a data plan, and therefore can't receive email or use your browser.

    RIM and the carriers drive all their data through RIM's secure servers and RIM's servers only, thus the requirement for a BlackBerry Data Plan. Without said plan you'll only have access to voice and data, unfortunatley there's no way around it.

    Not stupid at all! Assuming you have done the above suggestions and still don't know how... could be cuz your browser icon is missing. If it is press menu, go to options> advanced options> host routing table>menu and register now. Good luck and welcome! ~via BB (

    If you already have the Blackberry data plan, there should be a globe icon (or two) on your device. Once you click on that, you should be able to type in web addresses for browsing. One thing though, because the internal browser's pretty slow, you might wanna download operamini to get faster web surfing capability.
