You need a BB data plan to access either since they both use data. WiFi doesn't give you the connection to BB services (RIM) which you need.

Wirelessly posted (Lets Go Canes!)

Correct - the hotspot browser. Otherwise you basically you have voice and SMS (text) only.

Be careful with data usage too. If you inadvertently use a data connection, you could end up with a huge bill.

And check our FAQ for using the device with generic data and also for why you really do need a BB data plan.
