Default wifi surfing

Please Login to Remove!

hi guys... i would like to ask if how can i surf the net and use the social networking apps by only using wifi and not enabling the the data services on my bb 9360? because in the past i do have a bb curve 8520 and i can surf the net by using wifi only without data from my provider by unchecking the VPN in the settings... thanks

You cannot do that. You need a full BlackBerry Data Plan if you want to "surf the net" on your BlackBerry.

You canNOT do that now. You need a BlackBerry Data Plan. Once you have that, then you can use Facebook on WiFi.
