| | Re: I am new to BBM, BlackBerry AND smartphones, question re WiFi only and BBM on Z10
Blackberrys prior to the Z10 needed a special BlackBerry data plan in order for BBM, email, browser, etc to work. They wouldn't work over WiFi. As far as I am aware, that is not the case with the z10. If you disable your Data Services and just use WiFi, you should not be billed for using data.
I am sure someone more familiar with the z10 will correct me if I am wrong. Like you, I am new to the z10 as well as I just started using one this past week.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
When you take things for granted, the things you are granted, get taken.
Even a mosquito doesn't get a pat on the back until it starts to work.
Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.
