    What are you asking? What do you want it to do? Do you even have a BIS data plan?

    Do you have a BIS plan? Without it, you won't have mobile data, and can't get push email or use BBM (even on WiFi).

    I still don't really know what you're asking.

    You need a special plan for that museum piece. Otherwise it's somewhat useless.

    It is called Blackberry Internet Service (BIS) and not all operators have it.
    You can also work without BIS

    Both operations are complicated, the domain of the system can take months of work. It depends on your interest.
    But nothing has to do with the security of the system.
    I do not think you need to do anything special to strengthen security.
    You can also update the operating system to the latest version, which is also complicated.

    OP... ask you carrier if they support BIS or BES. If they don’t, get rid of the phone
