Cool use wifi when data is turned off

Please Login to Remove!

I have done a lot of searching for this. What I have learned is:
  • this could be carrier specific
  • need a different browser. Other then the default blackberry browser
  • need to enable wifi hotspot in advanced options BUT where is advanced options for browser? I cannot find the same in 9780?
  • disable mobile network to use wifi easily but that makes no sense as disabling mobile network will disconnect my phone from the mobile network. I will miss on important calls.

I am using vodafone unlimited data plans but under this plan I will be charged if I do video streaming. Henceforth, I want to use wifi whenever I have a wifi hotspot available. The issue is that I am able to connect to wifi but I cannot use wifi if I turn the data server off.

Is it really possible to use wifi with data turned off from the default blackberry browser in 9780 or should I download opera?
