    Can u please help me out in this issue, ill be very thankful to you and hats off to your know how

    • Bhrgav Thanks, Glad to know you found the post helpful.
      For postpaid i am not sure but you can change your network settings, Go to your BB network settings and select Idea network manually.

      • i tried ur settings in advanced options still i loose balance…i m using reliance sim and have activated a 16 rs whatsapp pack

      • I have done that as well like selecting idea network manually.
        And one more info is that the idea post paid plan that i have taken is a 2g plan.
        That is if i select 3G mode, the signal is 0 i.e.. “SOS”

  109. Sir,
    I want to buy a “BB qwerty phone” in which normal plan can effectively work coz I’m using Vodafone 2G pack in Gujarat please suggest me the “cheapest phone” in which I can browse any thing coz I’m student so I need it use WhatsApp , Facebook , Facebook Chat , & Many other apps of BB app store suggest me that which apps I am unable to use & suggest me that phone in which I can use your tricks & please ask me which other apps I can use in this phone………

  110. And also I can hear FM & connect to PC to browse from pc & which phone’s memory is 8GB or more or memory card supportable……………

  138. Hey grear tutorial.
    For the last two years I’ve been using whatsapp with normal net pack but one week back it suddenly stopped working. Instead of showing ‘edge’ in small letters it initially shows ‘EDGE’ in capital letters whenever I switch on the cell and then after 10-15 min it goes back to small letters . Its a very weird thing that has been happening to my phone since the past 3 days. I’ve rebooted my phone, deleted and downloaded whatsapp twice and changed the APN to www also but its still not working. Oh and I also tried talking to customer care but they were of no help. Any solution?

  144. Hi, this is in context to Harshit Jain’s blog on how to use
    normal data pack on blackberry. I have bb 9780;
    vodafone connection and I am using a normal data
    pack since 3-4months with opera mini browser but
    suddenly it stopped working. Everytime I reboot it
    works for 15-20 mins (regradless of the apn name) then shows error. I have tried the
    APN setting, hard reset and select the network
    manually but the problem persists. Please suggest
    something that would help. Thanks!
    P.s- you are doing a great job

  145. Hey Harshit

    Good blog, i have one question if i took BB service for BB messenger only which is cost me rs 129 in vodafone, and along with it if we takes any cheap 2g plan, then i hope we can use all the apps and internet on it.
    What is your thought on this.
    Please consider this also:
    BB Service for all application is 399 + Taxes =460
    BB messenger serive is rs 129 + 1 gb data plan = 229 + taxes = 250.
    If it works we can save rs 210.

  146. Dear Harshit,

    I want to purchase BB Z10. My queries are

    1) Can I use Reliance GSM /CDMA SIM in BBZ10 ?
    2) Can I browse 3G / EVDO internet using Reliance Data Plan.
    3) .APK applications supports after updating BBZ10 OS ?

  147. I am using BB 8520 curve with BSNL sim ,I’ve used bsnlnet,bsnllive,bsnlwap in APN ,but none of then are working.doesn’t get connected to internet only,even when opening operamini it cums server failed ,I’ve follwed all the steps,even in browser config I’ve changed to hotspotbrowser to BSNL,,please tell me ehy its not working

  148. does 3g also work with this setting or its only for 2g services.

  149. Hi, I am on Vodafone and I tried setting the APN as www but still apps like whatsapp. wechat or any other app for that matter is working. The weird part is that my blackberry normal browser is working. Now what should I do? please help.

  150. Hi,

    Can I use BBM and BB mail service on my Z10 after using this trick ?

  151. Hi, Harshit. You suggested me to dowload Opera Mini to my laptop and then transfer to my phone but I am not able to download it to my laptop. Opera mini compatible to blackberry would not get downloaded to laptop and can’t download it directly to phone since I can’t access internet through my phone. Is there any other way?

    P.S. I am using Blackberry Curve 9360

  152. Hey Harshit,

    I am not sure but I heard that with BB10, it is possible. Again, not sure so thought of asking. Thanks anyways 🙂

  153. If i hard reset my phone, won’t all my data get wiped?? is there any other way to use normal internet plans with updating OS or hard resetting

    • I didn’t understand your question properly, why you want to hard reset your phone to use normal internet plan, you can easily use normal internet plan without hard resetting and updating.

  154. Hi Harshit,
    Thanks for the info. I have seen others also doing the same and then they’re able to access internet services (apart from BB services, that is). So, along with all others who are not able to use internet services without BIS, I am also posting my request because yours is the only website which seems to be providing really good feedback.

    I have used BIS on and off, and then used normal 2G plans too, on my BB 8520. However after February 2014, I noticed that I’m not able to use normal data plans anymore. If I want to use Whatsapp, Opera Mini, etc, I have to activate BIS otherwise it doesn’t work even with wi-fi.

    I have tried the APN settings (VODAFONE) and it worked for 5 minutes, after that it stopped working again. I have switched off and the ON, I have also pulled out the battery and restarted it and the reset the APN and then entered the APN again. But then it somehow stopped working. Earlier I used to be able to use normal data plan along with wi-fi, but now even wi-fi does not work.

    Your help will be much appreciated. Thanks.

    • Rungsung, If you once active the BIS services than normal internet plan works not properly, for the solution of this problem select the network (Vodafone) manually from Network selection.

  155. Hi Harshit,

    I am using BB 8520 and could not able to connect internet without using BIS as and not able to update
    new version of whatsapp
    Please help me out.

  204. Hello Mr. Harshit,

    I have gone through your various guidelines. Very useful. Please tell me whether curve 9320 will work on idea postpaid normal 2g plan with above trik with hasslefree working. I am from kolhapur maharashtra. If it Will work, I am thinking to buy 9320. I feel its typing is quite good. Currently I am using xperia p as well as Samsung tab2. Typing is possible only with single hand. Not easy job to carry the tab. Pl. Give your views. Thanks.

    • Mahadev, Yes above trick will also work on Idea Postpaid plan.

      • Hello Mr.Harshit, Thanx for the information. One more doubt, in curve 9320 can we access Blackberry pc suite through usb tethering on normal data plan to browse on pc. Secondly can we use wifi hotspot of 9320 in this normal plan.
        Mahadev Patil

  205. i m getting edge in small letters

  206. Hi Harshit,

    I read the whole thread and tried using all the tricks to activate normal 2G internet plan(Airtel) on BB curve, however failed.
    I have changed TCP settings,manually selected network, switched on and off the sim and phone several times and ofcourse recharged the internet plan. But still it is showming the error “Browsing over the cellular network is not included as part of your current service plan.To browse the web, you must use Wi-fi or contact your service provider to change your service plan.”
    Look forward toy your reply.


    • Leena, Mamy times when we once activate the BIS service, It becomes tough to use internet using 2G plan, If you want to use 2g internet plan then you should hard reset your BB device.

    • Is Normal internet plan is working on 2G?

      • Hi,

        Actually this is not related to 2G or 3G, whenever i restart phone it works for 5minutes for both 2G & 3G, then again 2G or 3G anything not working. Before data wipe, it was working whenever i Switch On/Off Data services in span of 1 hour or so, then after 2-3 hours, it again not responding.

  280. Hi,

    I got solution!
    If u want to use it with normal internet plan unsubscribe the active blackberry plan or if u are still facing the same problem then insert any other sim card and start the phone and then again take out that sim card and insert the tata docomo sim and reset the APN.I m sure it will work for you.
