Can I access mobile internet without signing up to Blackberry internet plan?

I recently changed my plan with T-Mobile (UK) and now use and android phone with 3G mobile internet. A few days ago this phone broke and is now away being repaired so I put my new sim in my old Blackberry 8820. Is there anyway I could access my mobile internet without signing up to Blackberry services as I will only be using it for another week or so. When I go to the browser it tells me "Your device does not currently have any Browser Configuration Service Book Entries. Please contact your service provider to enable the Browser on your device."
Thanks for any help.

You'll need THE BlackBerry Data Plan on your account for full internet access, but you can use the WiFi Hotspot browser without the Data Plan.


Options > Advanced > Browser, set the browser to Hotspot and save.
