    I've recently swapped & got a Blackberry Curve.

    I've never had one before, its on orange.

    It connects to wireless areas but wont connect constantly like my old phone? like when im not in wireless areas.

    It says blackberry internet connection - none or something in the settings & you cant change it?

    My BBM also has never worked, peoples requests dont come to me & mine just stay pending.

    And finally. I cant send or receive picture messages!


    Thanks! & sorry if ive been vauge im new too this!!x

    Do you have a data plan or just utilizing hot spots/wifi?

    Seems like you already know what's happening: BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service) is not enabled on your phone.

    A generic data plan will not cut with a BLackBerry, you need BIS for it to have everything working, since many apps (RIM created ones specially), like GMaps, BBM and others only run on BIS.

    Give Orange a call. If I am right, BIS is 5.
