I don't have experience without a data plan, but no one else has responded, so I'll take a stab:
1 - go to options, advanced, TCP, and enter wap.voicestream.com for the apn. Leave user and password blank.
2- I don't know.
3- it really depends. What's best is highly individual. But I think you are going to find yourself very limited without a blackberry data plan. You will not be able to use any blackberry-branded applications.
4- don't know how to answer. Except you will be limited to what you can do through the wap apn.
You will not be able to download over the air with the wifi browser without the necessary service books, which you will not have without a blackberry data plan.
