How to Connect to Internet with Your BlackBerry without Paying For Data Plan

If you have a Blackberry phone you have asked this question at least once (maybe thousand times). The BlackBerry phone comes with many fancy add-ons, they have an eye-candy look but there is one problem with them. You have to purchase a data plan for internet access. (As far as GSM services tell) This sounded little weird for me because I could access internet even with my old nokia. The trick is GSM services push you to buy a data plan and BlackBerry also doesn’t give information for internet access without data plan, but the phone is capable of accessing internet without a data plan.

I own a BlackBerry Gemini and I am using internet with my Gemini without paying for data plan. To do this you have to make some settings with your phone. First of all you have to set up your tcp settings. In your BlackBerry menu go to => Options – Advanced Options – TCP and enter your APN information for your GSM Service. You can find TCP APN settings in the list below.

When you finish the settings you need a browser to surf the net. The best one is Opera Mini Browser. You download the Opera Browser to your BlackBerry and in the Opera Browser menu you go through automatic network setup. Once the Opera Browser finds out your settings you are ready to surf the net from you BlackBerry for free. (Excluding standart connection charges from your GSM service provider)

Often times software applications require your TCP connectivity to be set when using their program. Here are some settings for a few US carriers. To access the TCP settings, you must have OS3.8 or higher installed. From the home screen of your BB, go to Options – TCP.

Setting APN untuk BlackBerry

Berikut ini adalah setting APN (Access Point Name) pada handset Blackberry, agar kita tidak akan dikenakan tambahan biaya GPRS, karena sebenarnya kita sudah belangganan Blackberry Internet Service baik paket harian, mingguan atau bulanan karena paket-paket tersebut sudah mengemas semua layanan secara unlimited.

Tetapi terkadang kita menerima tagihan atau keadaan dimana pulsakita terpotong akibat biaya penggunaan GPRS, kenapa demikian ? maka dari itu silahkan periksa setting APN yang ada pada BlackBerry kita.

Caranya adalah dengan masuk ke menu sebagai berikut :
OPTIONS > ADVANCE OPTIONS > TCP (klik)
Username dan Password biarkan Kosong

Ada 3 pilihan :

1. APN : blackberry.net
Maka browser BB hanya akan bisa mengakses situs2 yang sesuai dengan Blackberry (BlackBerry friendly). Situs yang BB friendly itu tidak akan kena charge GPRS. Untuk situs yang tidak BB-friendly, maka tidak dapat diakses.

2. APN : [dikosongkan]
Maka browser Blackberry dapat mengakses keduanya, apabila situs itu BB friendly, maka tidak bayar. Jika masuk kedalam situs yang tidak BB friendly makan akan dikenakan charge biaya GPRS sesuai operator yang berlaku. (contohnya situs radio streaming, Youtube).

3. APN : wap.-operator-
Ini tidak direkomendasikan kKarena, semua situs yang diakses akan dikenakan biaya GPRS, meskipun sudah BB friendly.

Kemudian, pada browser Blackberry, kita harus merubah konfigurasi yang ada pada menu configuration sebagai berikut:
1. OPTIONS > ADVANCE OPTIONS > BROWSER (klik).
2. Default browser configuration (KLIK) : pilih INTERNET BROWSER.

Tips : Untuk akses youtube, radio dan video streaming lainya, sebaiknya menggunakan akses Wi-Fi, sehingga tidak akan ada tambahan biaya pemakaian GPRS.
