    Internet for my blackberry curve 8520 smartphone?

    Hey guys/ girls i just brought a new blackberry curve 8520 and a new optus pre-paid sim card and i want to know how to use the internet without connecting to wifi or wireless internet. I have tried changing my APN to internet but it still wont let me access internet it says "An error occurred while fetching the requested page." i comes up every time i try to go on a website, i want to know if there is a way to get internet without the error.

    Thanks,
    Kenny

    Hi,
    You will require a BlackBerry Data plan (BIS or BES) to be able to use the internet from your device. Optus or Vodafone offer very cheap add on plans (Optus offer a $19.99 per month prepaid Blackberry data plan)
    Hope this helps.
    Kind Regards,
    Greg Myers

    Hi,
    A BIS plan would be recommended for a single user solution. You can check out more at the link below.
