Ok, first off...
WiFi, you will be able to use it without the data plan fine, however you wil only be able to access the internet. That means no push email, no BB messenger, or anything like that.
WiFI + UMA... You will NOT be able to use UMA without a Rogers branded device. The UMA coding is a firmware issue and cannot be change, no if, ands, or buts about it. The only devices that can use UMA at this time with Rogers is the 8120 and 8820.
Data Plan... Like I said you will not be able to get push email or BB Messenger without it. Same with MMS, you need a BB data plan for anything like that. Essentially with WiFi off you will only be able to text message and make calls. That's it. With WiFi turned on, you will be able to text, make phone calls, and browse the internet(still no push email). If you want email on your device you will either need to navigate to the homepage of say gmail and log in that way or spring for either the $15 email plan, or the $30 data plan.
There is no way around it at all, none, nada, zip. Period end of story lol.
