Default Newbie from the Bahamas with question concerning apps

Please Login to Remove!

Hi!! Just signed up today after browsing around a bit and thought I'd ask a question concerning bb apps. I have a blackberry 8320 curve which it may sound funny, but only bought for its full keyboard feature (people love to text message here) The phone has wi-fi which I've used a bit out of curiosity, but not a whole lot seeing I have a Mini laptop for on the go and a desktop with internet at home, but while searching the internet for cases, I saw some applications for a few games that were for sale that caught my eye. It seems though that you would need a data plan of some sort to get these apps and I was wondering if there was some way I can I can get them using either wi-fi (which I doubt through the phone) or purchasing them through my computer's internet connection and then transfer them to the bb using the desktop media manager??

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Not looking for any freebies, but would like to have one or 2 apps which I don't mind paying for once I'm able to add to my phone without a data plan.

You need a data plan to access data features which includes installing most applications.

Some application have a desktop installation version, but you have to search more for them as they are less prevalent.
