The subsidy lock isn't relevant.

Do you have a Blackberry Data Plan? What exactly is the problem with downloading (what have you tried, where do you get, what happens, etc etc)?

You can't download anything or use data without a BlackBerry data plan. No email, no internet, no IM.

What do I need a Data Plan for? - BlackBerryFAQ

If you can find an IM app that uses SMS or works with wi-fi, you could use that. I think Beejive IM is supposed to work with wi fi.

Edit.. some things work with just wi-fi but without a data plan your device won't have the BlackBerry browser. You can use Bolt or OperaMini I think.
