Default Data Plans & Softwares

Please Login to Remove!

hey guys,

this is my first posting on BB forums and i'm real excited actually.
i was wondering if you guys could help me a little.
i don't know if this has already been answered, but i tried to look around for it but was unsuccessful.
i recently just bought a BB 8300 Curve on the Bell Mobility (CDMA) network privately and thus didn't need to get the Data Plan.
i wanted the phone actually for the text pad. i sms text a lot as it is unlimited throughout north america for me.
however, as i was getting really interested with the phone's capabilities and softwares for it, i was wondering if i could get any softwares at all for it?
i know theres some kind of a gps software but the phone didn't have it operating or pre-installed.
are there any softwares that i could get? or do i need the data plan to access and use those softwares?
in essence, i'm trying to use the most out of the phone without the data plan.

thanks a lot you guys, and have a good one!

Welcome to the forums.

It depends on which applications you're looking to install. Some apps use data, some don't. You could install themes and games and should be alright. Some of these links may help.
