Solve Data Plan Error In Blackberry

Edited by Shiza Ahmed, Mohsin, Charmed, Eng and 15 others

I have been using Blackberry for almost a month, overall performance, battery life and especially its keypad is quite awesome, way better than my previous Galaxy S2. When it comes to networking, superb signals even in low frequency areas, fast internet speed even in 2G. But what really teasing me is the data plan service error, whenever it tries to open Facebook or BlackBerry world it gives me an error, On Facebook it is like "You are currently on a service that does not support this application, please connect to a WiFi network or contact your service provider to upgrade your data plan". And on BlackBerry World "BB world is having problem connecting to BB world server, verify your network connection and try again" All these happens while I am connected to my WiFi network. So, I tried something and it worked pretty well it worked permanently for me but if you still have such problems try it again.

Yes please. I can't receive SMS or make calls?

My BB keeps rejecting my SIM card. Don't know if it is the network, or is the phone blocked.

This error is common and occurs when the Blackberry can't connect to CDMA. Power off the phone and pull the battery out. Once you have inserted the battery again and turn the phone on, the message will disappear. You should not see it again but if you do just complete the process again then contact your carrier for a new SIM card. The good news is that the work around for this issue is simple.

I can't open all my applications in my BlackBerry Torch 9800?

When I open one of my applications this message always comes up; "you are currently on a service plan that does not support this application, please connect to a WiFi network or contact your service provider to upgrade your data". I have tried: I tried to delete the advanced settings and turn it off and remove the battery. I think it was caused by: I don't know, I think every BlackBerry user suffer from this problem

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

This is an issue with your Carrier Account. Your Blackberry Data Plan for Internet has to be enabled. Contact your carrier to correct your situation. For now, use Hotspot by going into Settings>Options > Advanced > Browser, set it to Hotspot. Once you have saved your selection you should be able to install the app. Now, this still will not completely solve the data error with your carrier though so you will need to contact them.
