| | Do you need mobile network connection for WiFi to work?

I currently work in an area where the mobile reception is terrible and non-existent most of the time. The company has arranged for WiFi hotspot and I thought great - now I can actually get my BB emails and use BBM.
However, I realised that even though I connect and login to the WiFi hotspot and the coverage is great, the above services don't always work. Indeed I checked the Service Status on my 9700 and the BIS shows as Not Connected.
So my question is - does the BB have to have at least some connection to the mobile network for your BIS to utilise the WiFi connection?
