Default Can Blackberry Pearl 8120 WiFi be used to access internet WITHOUT a data plan?

Please Login to Remove!


I was just wondering if the WiFi on an unlocked BB Pearl 8120 can be used to access internet applications (such as gmail or facebook, etc.) without subscribing to a data plan?
(I would be using the BB with a 'pay as you go' SIM card, mainly as a phone, but would like to be able to access the internet from time to time if need be.)

You can use the hotspot browser to browse the web via wifi without a data plan.
BlackBerry applications like the Gmail app and Facebook app probably will not work.
