    I bought my Cingular 8800 phone on Ebay and unlocked it too. I have no problems accessing the internet. You have to have a data plan to do that though.

    djblacksheep welcome to the stacks, no, once a phone is unlocked you are good to use the browser, provided that the carrier has BB data plan you should be fine, with the tmo data plan you will be fine

    they say up to 48 hours mine came in about 30 min.
    go to
    options>advanced options>host routing table hit menu then register now. followed by a batt pull.
    phone on batt out 30 sec then back in.
    it may speed up the process
    post back

    ok go to
    www.t-mobile.com
    log in and see if your account is right.
    however as good as their service is, dial 611 from your phone, say blackberry and see if your account is good.
    I call them alot

    service books are what the BB needs to access the web, MMS and other data services, give tmo a quick call.
    611 on your phone and say blackberry when the prompts ask tell them you set up your data plan and need them to send your service books
