Question from Blackberry noob
I am total noob when it comes to blackberry phones because I got my first BB 2 days ago; it is bold 9900 and I am loving it. I want few things out of this device I am currently not able to do:
I want to be able to go online via 3G network and receive my emails same way. I live in Bosnia and Herzegovina and I am using prepaid from my carrier. It includes data plan, but when I enter APN information on my device it still is not able to connect to internet. Does my plan have to be BlackBerry specific? Is there way I can enter those information and go online like I did with iPhone and Android and Symbian phones I used to have?

You have to have BlackBerry Internet Service (Data Plan for BlackBerries) to recive e-mails, use the BB browser, apps and much more... with a regular data plan you have to install another browser ie. Opera, then you can go online and check your e-mails (like on a comp.) but you wont get any notifications.
Without BIS your BlackBerry is pretty much a very expencive and fancy yet regular old-school cellphone with internet (if other browser is installed)
Contact your carrier and ask for BIS, you might still be able to have prepaid on your contract.

piece of skin, in the back of my head, and laid babies, there's gonna be baby blackberries!"
TBH I installed Opera mini and all my internet surfing and email checking problems are gone. Thank you very much! I still think if RIM made this more user-friendly and not BIS/BES dependant as it is on iOS and Android, even on symbian, it would be best selling phone by far.
I am glad you agree this is something to be fixed. If they do fix it in BB10 and I am able to upgrade my 9900 to BB10 I am sure I ll be able to get at least 50 people I know get blackberry device.
E: just found out I will not be able to upgrade it...shame.
