Hi again alicat27. It sounds like you need to contact your carrier and subscribe to the Blackberry data plan. Once you have subscribed you should be able to set up your BB Internet Service email. Once you have your data plan, see this KB article:. Setting up BB Email from device
Post back and let us know how it goes.
