Exclamation Wifi to access Instant Messenging Apps and Email

Please Login to Remove!

Hi
Im planning on picking up the Blackberry 8520 tomorrow. Just wanted to know the following. I know you guys r very used to being asked the same questions but id appreciate it if you answer it again! Thanks!

If i am not using a data plan, can i still access BBM? If not BBM can i access windows live messenger? And what about using social networking apps like facebook on it and accessing Blackberry Apps World only through Wifi? I will only be using WiFi as a data plan is really expensive. Plus i got a got wifi where ever i go so i really dont need the data plan.
Also can i use WiFi to download all my emails?

Thanks alot in advance! Will really appreciate a quick answer cause im planning on picking one up in about 12 hours! haha.

Cheers!

You must have a blackberry data plan to use native blackberry data applications as well as the additional applications provided by RIM. This includes the social networking apps like the yahoo and microsoft messagenger and facebook apps that are written by RIM.

You must have the blackberry data plan / blackberry data service to use BB messenger and BB maps. Talk to your mobile service provider. There is a fee.
