App World Web Plugin Error - Revisited

I've been throught the many threads on this error, and have yet to find the solution.  I'm sure it must exist by now.  I have a Blackberry 9900 and it doesn't have a data package.  I'm trying to download some apps from the app store, but get the infamous "App World Web Plugin Error".  I'm not able to get past it by using IE, updating my browser, removing content protection, nor any of the other suggestions in other threads.

 

One thread had the following advise:

 

***************************************************************************

 

All you have to do is access App World Application installed in your cellphone via over the air(OTA). You will require a data plan to do so. If you don't have a data plan then you have to manually enter APN address for your network in the link given below by follwing given steps:

OS 5 users:

 

Options---Adnavced Options---TCP/IP

Check both APN Settings Enabled and APN Authentication Enable

 

OS 6 & 7 users:

 

Options---Device---Advanced System Settings---TCP IP
Check both APN Settings Enabled and APN Authentication Enabled

 

*******************************************************************************

 

However, I'm not able to apply this advise.  I don't know how to find my APN settings.  It sounds like the settings are for a data package, which I don't have.  But I think I'm supposed to be able to use apps regardless.  Does anyone know how this works?

Re: App World Web Plugin Error - Revisited

Actually, it doesn't.  My BB doesn't have a data plan.  This process doesn't work when you don't have a data plan, apparently.

 

I'm actually pretty good with tech stuff and computers, but have been completely stumped as to how to get this phone to connect to my pc.
