Default Blackberry 8700c and Fido

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I bought a BB 8700c over ebay and got it unlocked, now Im using it with my Fido Sim card. And I just found out that rogers is really expensive and theyre charging hundreds of ppl with over chargest if u go over 25mb of data limit.
If i dont switch to rogers, can i use my BB to go on the internet with Wifi? If so, How do i do that? I dont know where the browser is. Please help, i tried researching but i cant find any solution to my problem. Thanks!

No. The BB doesn't have wifi. You need a cell phone provider.

The browser will not appear until you have activated a Blackberry data plan on your account.

No Blackberry plan = No data.
