Sad part is an LG Android is on home wifi and email works just fine even without a sim installed. So sad..but sader still if I had purchased a new BB and discovered this big PITA.
I am using the 9320 for a basic phone/texting. Most other Internet stuff works ok over wifi.
Just how disappointed do you think I am!!!
No one cares how disappointed you are. BlackBerry devices have worked like this since they were first introduced in the 90's, so no one has an excuse for not knowing. The only devices that don't require a BlackBerry data plan are devices running BB10.
