Default wifi with no data plan

Please Login to Remove!

BB Curve 9300 connected to home Wifi. Carrier is at&t but no dataplan of any type.

I installed Opera Mini. I removed the simcard and I turned "Data Services" on. Opera Mini connected to the Internet.

When I checked my IP at an online site from Opera, it was 141.0.8.173, which is completely different than my WAN IP. (iPad and Laptop shows my WAN IP).

On my BB, the wifi icon is on and there is an "SOS" next to the network antenna in the upper right hand corner.

With my SIM card out, there is no way I could be charged for data usage, right? I am concerned because, a couple of months ago, at&t turned on my dataplan for some reason unbeknownst to me, although I suspect it was due to my turning on an Internet app in my BB. Not sure. When I got the bill, I had them turn the data plan off.

Why is the WAN IP entirely different than my WAN IP?

Thanks for the help!
