I'm only winging it here with this one, because I went ahead and subscribed to the T-Mobile internet. But that only lets me do so much. On the other hand, when I'm near a wireless router connected to the internet, I can go into my menu and open my "Set Up Wi-Fi" to scan for available networks.
That usually locates the router I am near, and I can connect to it, if it's an open network or I have the key to get into it. That, I believe you do not need a paying subscription to the T-Mobile internet option.
Also, once that is done, you want to go into your internet, go to the options, open the "General Properties" and make your default browser the "Hotspot Browser", and use the icon of the globe with the arrow going around it when getting online.
If you want to be able to save pictures and what not from the internet, another thing to do is go to the "Browser Configuration" in your internet options, switch the "Browser" option over to Hotspot Browser" so you are setting the right one, scroll all the way down to "Emulation Mode" and set it to "Microsoft IE"
I hope this helps you.

Unlocking isn't the answer. You need a Blackberry data subscription, normally they're bundled into the monthly calling plan with a BB but if you contact your network operator they can set one up for you. This is not usually something you can get if you use your BB on a Pay As You Go basis, in most countries you'll need to find a SIM only contract.

Without the data subscription, your BB can only ever be used for phone calls and SMS.

I have a blackberry 8120 on pay as u go but i carn't use the internet how do i do it

If its on Orange and has the new software version on it which I'm guessing it does as the new version was out over a year ago then the only way you can access the internet is via wi fi.
For some reason Orange decided it was more usual for Blackberry owners to connect to a network other than a mobile network. You will also find that you cannot send mms messages for the same reason.
There is a way of going back to the old software on the phone but you will have to do a lot of googling to find out.
