    Who said "free internet"?
    Do you have an active BLACKBERRY Data Plan from your service provider?
    And what about the "led lights"?

    You need to give more specific details in order for people to be able to give you assistance.

    Oh.. sorry bout that. I heard about the thing that you just have to register then you can acces the internet? Just wana confirm that if that is true.

    I heard about that in BlackBerry Curve 8520 you can change the lights? How could I change? Ex. When I received a SMS message, the light goes blue for a specific pwerson.I heard that there is a program for that?

    Last one is, I read about the themes in blackberry and tried downloading it. Afterwhich I put it in my BB curve 8520 then I can't find the theme in my themes option.

    P.S.
    Motorcycle mama I'm sorry bout giving few details about my problem as a newbie. Afterall I am a newbie.: ) thanks for answering

    You need a BLACKBERRY Data Plan active from your carrier/service provider in order to access data features such as the internet.

    You need a third party application such as BeBuzz in order to have custom LED notifications for things such as SMS.

    If the themes are not showing up under the themes section, then that means that the theme is not compatible with your device model number, or the device OS version on your BlackBerry, or both.


    Take some time to read through the Help and BlackBerry 101 Lectures linked above.

    No problem asking questions.

    No, it is not.

    BeBuzz --> allows you to customise LED-Settings, e.G. if my wife calls flash red, if my mom calls flash blue, if I get Twitter Updates flash green and so on.
    Themes --> Change the Look of your Homescreen / Menus

    Downloading themes and apps is the same process, if that's what you mean. However, themes and apps are not the same things.

    Also, in regards to the "free" internet:
    On the BB, you'll need, as said, a BIS data plan. Internet is included in this. You are still subject to any data caps (and overage costs) set by your carrier. One way you can avoid some of the overages is by using wi-fi for internet connections. (I can't recall if you can use wi-fi or not if you do not have a data plan.) When you are using wi-fi, you aren't using the carrier's data plan, you're connected via whoever's wi-fi.

    You downloaded the wrong version of Bebuzz or Berrybuzz depending on where you got it... Go to the CB store and find Bebuzz and make sure you choose the correct OS version for your device. If you have trouble here go to Bellshare - Premium BlackBerry Apps the developer of Berrybuzz and you can get it there as well.

    You might want to upgrade you device, just in case... That's the kind of error that usually relates to OS version issues... Even if it isn't keeping the device updated is always good.
