Straight Talk and My BOLD 9700
After years of service I was finally completely irritated with the pricing for ATT. So I ditched my ATT service and got Straight Talk. So far I have been happy with the service. Although, not so satisfied with my new E71. I unlocked my bold last year because I am required to travel abroad for work. In any case. My Straight Talk sim works fine in my bold to TXT and CALL but data seems to be another issue. I was wondering if there was a way to get the DATA to work on my Blackberry?

Does it have BlackBerry data though? That is the important part. The service books are sent to the phone, which allow the phone to be used to its fullest. Without those, you are stuck where you are right now, with a phone that half works.
Just browsed the Straight Talk website, and there is no mention of any BlackBerry device or data plan available. I cannot find anything on Google about it, so my guess is that it simply will not work.

Help with internet service on BB
I can't seem to find the instructions on bb.anworm.com. I have a verizon 9650 with BB OS6 and I downloaded the ATT service books to it. But, I can't seem to find the right settings to get the Straight Talk data working on the phone. If you have any directions on how you got it working I would be very greatful.

As soon as you have the chance, please update your profile to include your device, carrier, and location. This makes it easier for others to assist you.
The 9650 operates on CDMA frequencies natively. It is a "world phone" however the GSM/HSPA bands it uses are not the same used by US carriers.
Have you tried using the Browser over Wi-Fi?
Have you tried locating Verizon or Sprint service books for the 9650?
Not to be ignorant and state the bleedin' obvious, but the easiest thing is just to have a BB data (aka BIS) plan from a carrier, and use a BB they support.
As stated above, T-Mo and Virgin USA have pay-as-you-go plans for BB, if a contract isn't your thing.Saving the world, one OS at a time...
