    cadetstimpy, First you have to get a Blackberry Data Plan for your Account from your carrier. Then you have to set up your Blackberry Internet Service account at your Carrier's startup Site. Once you get a gprs or GPRS indication on you Home Screen, you should go to Options/Host Routing Table or Options/Advanced Options/Host Routing Table. Open the menu in that screen and select Register Now. Then you should see your browser icons on the Home Screen.

    Hope this Helps

    Re: browser and email without BES

    Ok, this might sound like a stupid question but is there anyway for me to use my blackberry 7290 with my school's free wifi to check my email and the like without have the blackberry data plan? Essentially all I have on my blackberry is basic phone service. No data plan, no text messaging. Thank you.

    williamk, Welcome to PinStack.

    No, there is no WiFI capabilities on the 7290. Sorry, You will have to have a BlackBerry data plan to get email and access to the internet.

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

    Forgive me if this is somewhere else, but I can't find how to remove my email account from my Pearl.

    Is this the same case for Blackberry 8800? I mean in terms of browsing & emailing? I have a Blackberry but it doesn't have a browser & email?

    Re: browser and email without BES

    I have a blackberry 8100g (pearl) and i have a basic voice plan...
    i already have a pop3 email account with my ISP that i want to use with my blackberry...
    Do i specifically need a blackberry data plan or can i just add a mobile data plan and access email manually through gprs like i did with my regular phone??
