This is how it works on 8820 and I doubt it will work differently on 8320: if you have valid SIM card with blackberry data plan you can use every blackberry feature over WiFi: email, PIN, BBMessenger, browsing.
Remove SIM card- no go. I thought what would happen if invalid (not activated or cancelled) SIM card is inserted- well, no go.
WiFi browser could be an exception and might work without SIM card, but even if it does- having just browser on blackberry is rather limiting.
For all purposes, no SIM card with blackberry data plan- no WiFi for you.
Excellent this is exactly how I thought it would work. I wasn't quite specific but many THANKS for clearing this up in earnest.
May I request a HUGE lot of WiFi Screenshots (from Options. The BB Browser, heck even from the connection screen - from scanning to wep/wpa input to full connection) PLEASE?! You can email them to me if thats ok, again please?
Also is there an option to manually SWITCH which connection to use if BOTH are available - ie WiFi & EDGE can you choose WiFi over EDGE & vice-versa?
Scan for available Wi-Fi networks BlackBerry Search Results Use the Wi-Fi Diagnostics tool BlackBerry Search Results
