Default Re: Default I-net browser withoutdata plan ...

I have here a T-Mobile brand 9700. I did a security wipe on it. No SIM card installed. The wifi browser works. Two service books are present, Wi-Fi TCP/IP Browser [BrowserConfig], and Wi-Fi TCP/IP Transport [WPTCP].

It's known that some carriers allow WiFi without a data plan -- T-Mobile for one -- and others do not. It appears to me that the WiFi service books are in the device software and the device branding determines whether they are enabled or not, else the have to be pushed to the device by the carrier, which in turn requires a BlackBerry data plan. At least that is how it appears to me.

I can see a possibility for how it is that the OP has the WiFi service books without a BlackBerry data plan.
