Default Problems with applications & Network access

Please Login to Remove!

Well i just bought a 8900 ... unlocked device ... new out of the box so i dont think it was ever connected to any kind of BES ...

Im using Airtel India as the carrier... i managed to download and install applications like Facebook, gtalk, nimbuzz and twitterberry ... now the problem started... even though i have gprs (egde) activated and have a Wifi connection at home ... i cant seen to log on to any of the applications mentioned above.. i mean these applications cannot access the internet...

so what i wanted to ask was that is it mandatory that i have BIS activated for these applications to work or can i access the net through Wifi or/ and gprs ..??

i even went into Options --> Security --> Application Permisssions --> and edited the general permissions to allow all kinds of network activity and the firewall is disabled...

Since im a first time BB user id like to know if im doing something wrong... Kindly help me if u can ...

Appreciate it a lot !! Thanks

It sounds like your BIS is still not active. i believe it should say EDGE and not the lowercase edge on your phone. So either your BIS isnt activated or you need to resend your service books.

Some yes, some no.
I.e. Applications developed by RIM (Facebook, live messenger, blackberry maps etc) will require a BB data plan to download and run.
Other applications may not require a BB data plan to run, but must be configured within the application.
Other applications just cant run on wi-fi.

Get the Blackberry data plan, and problem sorted.
