I have an 8820 that I'm giving to my mom when the 9000 comes out on ATT. My question is, can I disable data except for on wifi? She won't have a data plan (just trying to get her something nicer and with a qwerty keyboard), so I don't want her accidentally incurring data charges. But itd be even nicer if she could access data stuff when she's at home, on wifi. Any ideas?

Yes, in your Options > Mobile Network, you can disable the mobile data. The BB will lose certain functions, and some will be offset by the wifi, but she still won't have a email, etc.
