Default Can't Download w/o bb data plan?

Please Login to Remove!

How do I download anything w/o a data plan cause there are so many wifi apps I want like slacker but it won't give me the usb enabled way only the off the bb internet way.

What do I do this is really starting to tick me off? We can't afford a data plan but I want to be able to download aps.

You cannot use slacker without internet. If you plan to use it with wifi, download it with wifi

You probably need the service books to do OTA with wifi browser. If that's the case, then no blackberry data plan = no OTA download over wifi.

Unfortunately there is not a whole lot you can do with a BB without a data plan. Yes there area ways around certain things but for the most part you need the data plan.
