The Pearl does not have wifi capability and I don't think you could do it without a data plan regardless. The best that you can hope for is to download ringtones and stand-alone applications for the Pearl. You have use the Desktop Manager to load them onto the phone.
Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance. Without a BB Data Plan your phone is pretty much a phone.
