Will they work through the WiFi or do they need a data plan?

Thank you!
For the majority of applications/content to work such as BBweather, you will need the BB data plan. It will not work with just a wifi connection. I would say about 90% of BlackBerry data usage will require a BlackBerry data plan.

A lot of new users aren't familiar with the FULL experience they'll encounter with adding the BlackBerry Data. I suggest you give it a shot for a month, if it isn't worth the extra...then by all means, take it off of your plan.
Excellent advice.
