You need a blackberry data plan to use BBM. Then it will work off wi-fi, but unsure if it will work off wi-fi without the sim card.

I use BBM all the time over WiFi. You do need a BB data plan in order to use BBM to start with.

You need the SIM card for the BB to make contact with RIM's servers and recognize the BB data plan. So without a SIM card, you CANNOT use BBM over WiFi.
