Default Apps that work via WIFI 100%?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Folks,

since I´m faily new to this 8900 device with WIFI, I would like to know which Application will also Run when WIFI is connected without stealing off the Mobile tarif since its limited.

Here a List that at least work:
  • FaceBook
  • BlackBerry Browser
  • Google Maps - I have the feeling it does also use the Mobile Tarif
  • Google Mobile App
  • Opera Mini
  • Viigo
  • The Weather Network

Cheers

all should...

a good way to test is, turn on wifi, connecto to your router, once all connected and such turn off mobile network, and go about your business for a while, if you notice something from those apps arent working or isnt updating, then thats your answer

Are you talking about the Facebook app? I can't get mine to work, when I start it up it says I don't have the required black berry data plan.

I try, at the bottom of the mobile page there is a link that says "Download the New Facebook Application for Blackberry" and takes me to the blackberry site. But when I try to log into that app it says I don't have the required services.
