blackberry internet

2: Seeker

So I got this Blackberry Torch off of my friend. I ordered a new Vodafone SIM card and then topped up £10 on it and changed that to a £10 package. The package included a certain amount of internet usage. When I tried going on the interenet (without wifi from a router- just when I was out) it wouldn't let me get on it and says- "you do not have sufficient wireless coverage"

I had mobile connection signal

I really dont know what to do, I am not sure whether I have to get BIS or not (I heard it is £5), because if I do then it is cheaper to just go back to GiffGaff

And then how would I unlock my Blackberry to except my GiffGaff SIM card

Hi RoseMarshall

 

You will need BIS (BlackBerry Internet Services) in order to use data on your BlackBerry.

 

See how you can get here

 

Thanks

Your Friend will need to request the Handset Unlocked.

 

I would first try another SIM card to make sure it is not already unlocked as many Vodafone supplied phones are already Unlocked.
