You can download the program via Desktop Manager and not get data charges. Now, does the program use data once you start it on the device? That is the big question. Several apps are available for desktop download, but they use data once you run them.
As for updating to 4.5, you do that via DM, but the service books are sent to your phone. I am not sure if that uses data. I have a data plan, so I don't have to worry about that. I could send them 500 times a day and not worry. I get to download apps over the air with no worries also. Themes? Once they are developed for my phone, over the air. Pandora, Google Maps, whatever I want.
Also, without a data plan, you cannot utilize BB Messenger, which is a really nice messaging system that lets you talk to other BB owners once you have their PIN.
