Welcome to the forums.

You will need a BlackBerry data plan.

You would need to contact your carrier (Vodafone).

I believe so. You may want to check with Vodafone to be sure.

You won't be able to until you have a BlackBerry data plan.

^^^ This FAQ (that I can't even link to o.O) says you can't use the internet at all without a Data plan, however I don't have one and I can browse the web just fine with the Hotspot browser when I'm connected to WiFi.

However, I can't use AIM over WiFi and this really irritates me..

Yes, you can browse over WiFi, however, did you read the OP's original question?
