Default Go phone Sim in 8320

Please Login to Remove!

Tried searching, couldnt quite find the answer.

If I buy an unlocked 8320, Will I be able to put my gophone sim in the phone and still use Wifi?

I know what a data plan is and know since I dont have one I wont be able to enjoy some aspects of the phone. BUT, will the Wifi work? I basically just want to use the prepaid sim, and use the wifi connection im constantly surrounded with to access the web browser.

Thanks in advance

Yes, you should be able to do what you're asking about.

Yes it will work. If you have tmobile, the tzones browser will work for the CNN and ESPN stuff. The Blackberry Browser will work for wifi only. You can still receive and send sms and mms texts like any other go phone.
