You will want to contact your carrier to get a BlackBerry data plan and to ensure it has been activated on your plan. Note, there are different types of plans available, depending on your carrier, so be sure to get the one for your needs. If you want a plan with both BBM and emails, you'll need a full data plan, otherwise, you may be able to select a limited plan if your carrier offers it.
I hope that helps!
