    First make sure you have the correct user name and password for your APN. I think the ones for MTN are as follows:

    Access Point: blackberry.net
    Username: web
    Password: web


    Access Point: web.gprs.mtnnigeria.net
    Username: web
    Password: web

    It is possible that the blackberry.net APN is not available on your carrier, according to your carriers website web.gprs.mtnnigeria.net is what you are supposed to be using.

    Your answer from Vodacom is here:

    On-device browsing constitutes any WEB/WAP sites accessed across the blackberry.net APN whilst utilising the BlackBerry browser. Utilising the BlackBerry browser, customers are able to browse and use mobile content and services on the BlackBerry smartphone. Customers have access to on-device real-time browsing consumption subject to the Data Fair Usage Policy. Content acquired in this manner is intended for consumption on the respective device. The on-device browsing includes on-device social networking (e.g. Facebook, BlackBerry Messenger and Twitter) as well as the viewing of e-mail messages, appointments, contacts, tasks and memos. Vodacom; may from time to time identify certain websites with Research In Motion, where access to these sites will be charged for at the customer`s prevailing data tariff plan. Certain sites, for example sites where you are able to download music will have separate terms and conditions governing the use of the site and downloading of its content, and it is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with such terms and conditions.

    It does,not only 9900 but all the os 7.0. But the tariff plan is cheaper,better and faster on APN blackberry.net than APN web.gprs.mtnnigeria.net

    Are you sure you did not mean your 9800 in this message? I think you are trying to say that your 9900 wont connect.

    I have the same problem but the difference is, blackberry.net as the access point isn't working for me and I use a  9800 with a 6.0 O/S but when I changed the access point to web.gprs.mtnnigeria.net, it worked but they were removing my credit. And not supposedly using my blackberry subscription service as a modem. Is there any work around, or any other valid access point I can use to connect my blackberry as a modem without MTN removing my credit? Urgent help and answers needed! Thank you..

    Urs is very simple, ur 9800 is branded right? If it's all u need to do is to look for unbranded bold 9700 or torch 9800 wit MTN BIS on it, connect with it. And when u are done, disconnect it and put back ur 9800 and connect. If disconnection persist contact me twitter, @ikennandy
