If you do not have any Blackberry data plan with your carrier then you cannot use the applications on the blackberry which requires internet.

If your service provider said that you can connect to WIFI internet at your home or at any hotspot then:

Go to options > Advanced > Browser, set your browser to HotSpot browser.
With Wifi, you don't need a data plan to connect the browser.

IF the above doesnot fix the issue then:
Do a soft reset by leaving the phone on, pull the battery and replace. It takes a couple of minutes to reboot and finlly clear all of your browser caches.

This should fix the issue.

IF you have a data plan with your carrier then you will have to contact them and only they can help you fix this issue as they will provide you with ip address to manually setup the internet.

    You will have to perform a hard reset on your device that is the only option you have and if the issue is not solved then it is a problem with your service provider and not your blackberry.
    Note: Backup all applications
    before resetting the BlackBerry device using the Backup and Restore tool on the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
    With Java® based
    devices, this is accomplished by removing the battery, while the
    BlackBerry device is powered on. Hold the battery out for about 30
    seconds, and replace. The BlackBerry device will reboot.
    Note: A hard reset on a C++ based device is accomplished by pressing the Reset button.

    Note: To perform a hard reset on a RIM models 850, 857, 950,
    or 957 device, insert the end of a paperclip inside the small hole on
    the back of the handheld.

    Thank You for using fixya.
