Default WhatsApp / Viber on Blackberry 8520 : WiFi only?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All

Hope every1 is doing well and enjoying their BlackBerry 8520. I had some questions about Apps for my 8520. I have installed Viber from BB World and use it over WiFi. But if I use the internet thru my normal [non BB] Data plan I cannot seem to use Viber. Same thing for when I use the Twitter/Facebook App. It says service not available. I can check my Twitter/Facebook thru Opera Mini browser. I assume the Apps only work thru WiFi.
I will now install WhatsApp from BB World. I was wondering if it will only work thru WiFi. Is there any way to use Viber/WhatsApp thru a normal [non BB] data plan? Please do let me know, because if there is a way, then I would like to install more apps. Thanking all in advance,

BlackBerry branded apps on BBOS devices will require a BlackBerry data plan. Some third-party apps, those that use BlackBerry services, will also require a BlackBerry data plan so as to be able to access the services.

See what others say about finding out which is which. I think if it were me I would ask the developer ahead of time before paying for an app. In the case of free apps I would just download and try.
