blackberry 8900 google maps and email application

[ Edited ]

Hi, I have got a new blackberry from AT&T on the early June in the USA, I do not have a data plan. 


The problem is: 1,after I downloaded google email application by wireless, I cannot install it. "This program requires a working data connection. Please check your signal strength and connection settings and then restart application", 

       2.after i downloaded maps, When installing,  "data connection lost"


What is the root of the two problems? Is it because I changed the configuration? 

[In "default browser configuration"I switched "hotspot browser" on. In "default WAP browser configuration" I switched "community" on.

In TCP/IP: APN: wap.cingular

                  username for APN: wap@cingulargprs.com

                  password: cingular1 

I do these things above according to the information I searched on the internet, but I do not know about it at all.] 


By the way, i can browser internet with configuration above.  


what should I do to reset my connection to use the two applications? Please help!
