There are two types of Blackberries - those with wifi and those without. You may be able to access some 'data' services via wifi (if you have a wifi-enabled 'berry - typically the XX20 versions).
But beyond that, anything other than voice calls, texting and wifi requires data plan - including email, facebook, other web-based apps, navigation options (GPS enabled phones can access GPS satellites without 'data', but require data for displaying/updating maps)...
Bottom line, unless you want just a phone and/or a PIM, you need a data plan.
