Default No Wifi Only Data Mode for Blackberry 8320?!?

Please Login to Remove!

I bought a Blackberry 8320 specifically for the wifi because it's not my primary phone (I work for an app development company) and I don't typically have a SIM card in the blackberry.

After hours of futzing around with the device it seems there is no way to run most of the apps without a SIM card and blackberry data plan. It just seems silly. Has anyone found a workaround?

Don't think you have any other alternatives. A data plan is necessary for most apps because (some can use wifi).
