Can someone explain this convoluted BB email thing?
As far as Data plans and WiFi are concerned. The WiFi will always work for your browser (at least it should)
There is the WAP browser, this only works with a data connection.
Then there is the blackberry browser, you must change it's setting to HotSpot and it will use WiFi.
Some WiFi services still use a data connection so they will not work even though they primarily use WiFi.
I highly suggest a browser such as Opera Mini. This can be set to use only WiFi and will work even if you have no data plan.
My phone was cut off because I missed a bill payment and although I had no phone/data service, I would still use WiFi.
All you need is a SIM card in the phone, it doesnt even have to have a phone number on it, and WiFi will work.
