Default Can you download App world without a data plan?

Please Login to Remove!

I do not have the data plan. I would like to use this application via wifi. Unfortunately, I have not had luck downloading it on my desktop or on the Bold via wifi. Can anyone help?

You can actually download Apps using wifi...

Options > Advanced Options > Browser and set the default browser to HotSpot Browser.

But - If you are using a Bold, you need a data plan. There are so many apps to make it worthwhile... I have replaced my ipod and xm radio with Slacker Radio, a free app that streamlines music for free (as long as you have an unlimited data plan). That is just one of the apps that makes it worthwhile..

Hope this helps.
