    brand new....havin problems

    Advertisement



    Yo, what's up. I just got a 7230 yesturday from ebay, and I'm having trouble sending/receiving emails. I set up my account on cingular to accept my gmail account. I have a desktop manager and it's running 4.0. Accross my wall paper reads: Data connection refused. what does that mean? Now, I know there are answers to these ?'s somewhere on this site. If someone can point me to that direction, it would be greatly appreciated.

    oh, and sorry about the non discriptive title.

    Data connection refused usually occurs when you dont have a data plan on your account

    Call your carrier and ask for their BlackBerry Data Plan (unlimited preferably).

    I had the same problem... Contact the carrier about the issue. Heads up... It is a little pricey. Don't worry, you'll always have questions about the BB... But if you come here, someone always has an answer for ya.

    jusdog, Welcome to the stacks, and keep us informed how this goes. Sometimes Cingular Sales people don't get everything activated correctly and it takes a call to the Data Device Support to get it all worked out. I assume you correctly entered your PIN and IMEI when you set up your BIS to work with gmail. You might want to go back and check it carefully, I know the IMEI is a lot of digits to get correct.

    Hope this helps.

    I got everything entered correctly. I also checked everything out on the cingular website, and it seems that I must purchase the serive, and it is a bit expensive, on top of the plan that we already have. But its all good. Thanks for the warm welcome guys and gals, and thanks for the help.

    I don't understand, I didn't think you could even log in to the Cingular BIS Website unless you had a BB data plan. Maybe that's changed since I got my service. If you don't want to use a Hosted BES service and to just use the BIS, make sure you sign up for the Blackberry Personal Internet Plan, ($29.95/$34.95) and not the more expensive one.

    Hope this helps
