Default Unlocked 8320 WIFI only AIM HELP!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, I recently purchased an unlocked T-Mobile 8320 that I am using for AT&T. I have searched the foroums about using the Aim program with wifi only but no body found an answer previously. I was just wondering if anybody knows how to use the aim program for the 8320 using only wifi. When i try to use the program it tells me to go to but after going to that site nothing happens. Thanks alot!

The instant messenger programs for the new BlackBerry devices require a data plan in order to use. I don't believe they will work via Wi-Fi only.

That's correct. No data plan = AIM/IM programs won't work.

BeeJiveIM (JiveTalk) works with no data plan...However, it's not free.
