I'm completly new to the RIM/Blackberry's so apologies if this is an obvious one!
I bought the Bold SIM free and unlocked from a highstreet shop (from Phones 4U - so I paid a lot for it with no contract). The intention was to use it without paying any extra. I realise that I wouldn't get push e-mail but hoped to be able to use the WiFi and the data bundle on my existing contract and use Google's app for normal fetch e-mail. This seems to work up to a point. If I use the hotspot browser I can surf just fine but if I try and use any of the Google apps, e.g. mail, it just seems to hang.
Also I tried to use the Facebook app as well and this also hangs but when I cancel the connection it says that my service plan does not support data - which is not correct, on a 'normal' phone I can do data...
So having spent several hundred pounds do I now need to pay even more over to my network provider (Vodafone UK) to be able to use the BB Bold properly??? Bear in mind I'm not fussed about push e-mail so if that was the only thing that didn't work that would be ok.
Thanks in advance,
