how to acess internet outside the home on 8520

Hi All,

I'm completely new to the world of mobile phones, so need the idiots guide to my question please.

 

My question

 

When using my internet browser how do I swap from using my home WIFI to using the orange network when out and about? As soon as I leave my home I get the message "This is a WIFI service. Please ensure your device has an active Wi-Fi connection and try again"

 

Device info

carrier: Orange PAYG

Model info 8520 and OS version v4.6.1.314

 

Many thanks Smiley Happy

Do you have a BlackBerry Data Plan enabled on your account with your carrier or mobile provider?

That's what you need for mobile internet access. Other plans won't do.

It appears that the op has a pay as you go plan, so no data. If you leave a wifi hotspot you will not be able to use data.
