This is a thread for users of the Bold 9000. Your profile shows your handset is an 8700. Can you confirm what you're using?

On my Bold with the latest OS and latest version of Gmail application, I need to have my Rogers connection turned on. Gmail will not work strictly over wifi.

This is also the case for the Facebook application. I've found that using the web-browser equivalent's allows me to get around having to pay Rogers to access my web-data.

Poynt also requires a data connection and so does Google Maps.

Email, Web browser, and IM (BB, Google Talk, Windows Live Messenger) will work using strictly wifi.
