BBM, email, etc. do not work because you do not have a BB data plan.

And if the device has water damage many things can happen over time. In most cases, it is best to replace the device rather than deal with a multitude of problems.

And please do not post in text speak.

The fact that *some* non-RIM data services still work over WiFi (twitter, Facebook) indicates that although you no longer have a legit BlackBerry data plan the old service books are still on your device. That's why they still work. But BBM requires a connection to RIM's infrastructure so you're out of luck on that.

Yes. You need to pay your bill. Your data services will not work without an ACTIVE BlackBerry Data Plan.
