Default bypassing apps asking for data service

Please Login to Remove!

i have seen a thread somewhere that someone asked about bypassing the data service and someone said it is possible and he gave inrtusctions but it doesnt work for me. i.e. i reallllly wanna use the facebook app but all i have is wifi, no data plan so when i click on the facebook app that i downloaded, it says cannot connect, need data service...

so my quesiton is... is there any way u can make the phone recognize the wifi instead of the data service so i can use the apps i want that need internet to work?

The Facebook application requires a BlackBerry Data Plan. If you have one, then it will work via WiFi. If you don't have a BlackBerry Data Plan, then you can't use the app. There's no way around that.
