Questions and Answers

Do I need a username and password for BlackBerry.net APN?

I had activated a BlackBerry data plan, but still my main balance is being deducted. I contacted my service provider and they suggested that I change my APN settings, but they didn't provide any username and password. And still my main balance is being deducted.

Try your carrier's APN settings from the list above. If the username and password are left blank in the list, it's likely that your carrier doesn't require a username and password for their APN. However, if it doesn't work without a username and password, you will need to call your carrier back and ask for the BlackBerry-specific APN username and password that they use for their network.
