No. Alot of apps need a Blackberry data plan to work.
This is because its a blackberry and is not like a HTC or iphone.

You need a BB data plan, plain and simple. You can use a generic plan or WiFi, but many things will not work

Two links from our FAQ might shed a bit of light on the subject:

How to use BlackBerry on Generic Data Plan - BlackBerryFAQ

What do I need a Data Plan for? - BlackBerryFAQ
