Default I don't have a data plan, what I can do only with Wifi

Please Login to Remove!

Hi: I just got this bb9000 from Bestbuy today. I'm still a student and I have want to pay 30 dollars for the data plan. But How can I install more games. I don't think I can visit att mall through wifi.

Can I use my PC to install some useful software or games? Thank you so much!

BTW, I found that I could only use wifi to go to different website to check my mail. Why I cannot use the mail from BBY to check mail?

Thanks

You need a BB dataplan for email

Please do a search to find what you can do only with WiFI. Lots of threads and discussion on it. Check the FAQ as well. But you are somewhat limited.
