Enable (hack) BlackBerry Browser without BIS/BES January 2, 2013Posted by Ishmael Chibvuri in Latest Articles!!!.
This simple hack enables Blackberry default browser to use a normal internet plan instead of a costly dataplan or enables the browser for those who don’t have a dataplan. All you require is to get a cheaper normal GPRS/3G plan and configure the TCP/IP option in your blackberry. This hack in no way will affect your Push-mail and messaging services and you can always revert to the previous state easily too. So the following people are benefited with this hack:
· For all those using blackberry without a dataplan, they cannot access or use the default blackberry browser. Without access to the browser they wont be able to do an OTA install of apps or install the Blackberry ‘AppWorld’.
· In some countries, the Blackberry Dataplan is very costly. So using it to download apps and browsing will burn their pockets. These people will be benefited if they could access Browser using normal GPRS/3G plan which is way cheaper.
Follow these steps to do it:
First we need to enable legacy restore mode. To do that:
· Go to Options > Advanced Options > Service Book.
· For QWERTY models hold ALT and press ‘S’ ‘B’ ‘E’ ‘B”. For Sure-type (1/2 qwerty) models hold ALT and press ‘S’ ‘S’ ‘B’ ‘E’ ‘B’ & for touch screen models hold [!?123] until it show lock icon and press 4 ? 2 ? – means ALT ‘S’ ‘B’ ‘E’ ‘B’.
· You will then see the message "Legacy SB Restore Enable".
After that you are free to backup/Restore Service Book on your BlackBerry.
Now download this file: http://www.box.net/shared/j6lp6cii8g
It is a backup file(.ipd) which can be used to restore a specific service book. Now follow these steps
· Open Blackberry Desktop Manager.
· Select Backup and Restore, you will see main options, as follows:
· Click Advanced button. In Advanced option, click File. A drop down menu appears and then click Open. Now select the backup file that we downloaded.
· Then select Service Book at the left column and click ‘>>‘ button.
· After that, disconnect the phone from the PC and then goto Options > Advanced Options > Service book on your phone. And make sure there is Service Book with name ‘Browser Config [BrowserConfig]’ is there.
· Now you have to configure the browser to use this Service book. To do goto Options > Advanced Options > Browser and check if ‘Browser’ is selected as shown in the image below.
· Now go to your Blackberry Desktop. Voila…. there is your Browser icon.
· Next step is that you need Access Point in Options > Advanced Options > TCP. Fill those fields. If you don’t have those info’s, contact your service provider and ask them.
· Restart your phone and run Browser. Enjoy your new freedom. To install AppWorld, goto http://www.blackberry.com/appworld/download from your Blackberry Browser.
· If you see the Browser icon, You have Service Book on your phone. If the Browser doesn’t work, go to Options > Advanced Options > Browser and check if ‘Browser’ is selected. Then back to Home and try Browser again. with some lucky it will work
· If your BlackBerry have IT-Policy. Try to remove IT-Policy first and then Enable Browser.
· If you are still stuck somewhere, try reintalling the Blackberry OS(Upgrade or Downgrade) then retry this hack.

I have found out a way to make the browser work in OS6. I have tried it on 9300 and 9360 (OS7). Both are working flawlessly. If you have any problem, you can find me at facebook as Sushindro H Sharma or follow me at twitter @Sushindro.

Hi Thanks for the tip. But I have been facing an issue. If anyone can plz do so .. 🙂
After doing your procedure, all works well. But, within a short while, my phone restarts itself and loses all its previous settings. How can overcome that ? Kindly do let me know. Kindly do reply also to email@example.com
AnonymousJuly 2, 2012 6:37 AM
Did you get your problem solved….I have the same problem, would you help me. Reply firstname.lastname@example.org
The provider is BSNL, India. But when I do a security wipe, it always shows as Alltel. But I can assure you that I can use any SIM, so my guess is it is unlocked. What is your suggestion ?
AnonymousJune 24, 2012 9:19 PM
I know the process to make it work in OS6 and OS7. Search for Sushindro H Sharma in facebook and subscribe to me. Alternatively you can look for @Sushindro at twitter. Bz of luck..

one question is this hack only for the browser or we can use any bb apps that use internet ex : facebook , twitter..and most importantly what about whatsapp?? please reply asap !! i am 4 days away from renewing my bis service i don’t want to do that ..
This is hack is only for the default BB browser. Other apps which specifically requires BB data plan (BBM for example) will not work.

Ok, the hack works perfectly, but there is only one problem, after I have done this, I start having problems with my network that I never had before, and at times my internet will not work with applications outside the browser, I.e whatsapp, and often I’ll have to reboot my phone, and I am afraid the constant rebooting will damge my software, because now it reboots on its own, I have a blackberry 8520curve, please help.

Wonderful post, you’re a genius Akhil !
I have a problem though. I installed the service book, and it showed in advanced options>service books. then I pulled out my battery, and after restarting, its lost the service book. Really needed the fix? I’m running OS5, on a BB storm 2 btw. Would love a reply !
