ive recently tried installing FB 1.6 onto my blackberry via the loader.exe

I would make life easier and get a data plan.
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.

Agreed. Get the data plan, and you won't run into the issue of apps not working properly.

Some apps will indeed work over WiFi, but only if you have a BlackBerry data plan on your account. It still needs the BB plan to verify, it just won't use it when on WiFi. Useful if you have a monthly cap on data.

But you still need a BlackBerry data plan.
