    Bolt Browser works for internet. I saw another user comment on blog talking about Bolt working, so I tried my copy of Bolt and it works! Yeaaa! If you got Bolt, try it. Then use http://m.crackberry.com as an url & you can go do your Crackberry stuff. Cool!

    Possible temporary fix if your BB has wifi.

    1. Options -> Advanced -> Service Books -> Find and delete ""IPPP for 5 Click (IPPP)"
    2. Turn Wifi on and connect
    3. Navigate to and Update BBM by going to blackberry.com/messenger

    *note that doing this will stop incoming emails to your blackberry until service books are sent
