wifi isn't going to give your blackberry free internet access unfortunately.
the purpose of wifi on the blackberry is to allow you to browse the internet faster than it already can, and send messages/emails faster than usual
that is not truly correct. WiFi only lets you surf the web even if you don't have data plan. You only need the service book which should come pre-loaded. Try turning the cell signal off and use only wi-fi to see if u can surf.
I have unlocked t mobile phone on t-mobile macedonia without bb data plan and i can use the wi-fi browser.
to use the other wi-fi functions, such as UMA, u need data plan
