Nope. You need a BB data plan, especially if you are planning to use any RIM related services such as email, BBM. the BB Browser, etc.

Keep in mind, Rogers can switch it to a BlackBerry data plan for you, as long as you are still keeping the data term. If they have the old expired $30 6gb data plan, they may be able to add on an apn.blackberry code that may make that plan work on your device but there is no garuntee.
