Hi there,

It sounds to me like you don't have a data plan on your phone account. I would suggest contacting your carrier to ensure that everything is set up correctly on your account and that should help.

Good luck and I hope this info helps!

Hello, thanks a lot for your reply, I thought so too and I double checked no my plan is full services and they confirmed its working from there side.

The BBM is the basic feature that as long they activate the service its included in all three plans provided and mine is the full one and internet is workng perfectly as wel as I can call through BBM as well its only the messeges that are not orking.

Just to be thorough, can you try restarting the device? Press and hold the power button and when the numbers start popping up, release and touch the Restart icon. Does it start working after that?

It just worked now! I didn't do anything but I got the message that they activated the service for the second time and it worked so I guess it was like you said an activation thing

I'm not sure why this is happening for you MagicManuzi, but is this a problem on different wifi networks? If you haven't tried yet, try to connect to a different wifi network. Do you have any issues then?

My initial guess is that your BlackBerry is trying to access a specific port on your wifi network to send the data to the BlackBerry data network, and the firewall on your router may be blocking access to that port.
