Default Frustrated WIFI with no data plan

Please Login to Remove!

Researching over the internet and tried a bunch of things,,still not working..crying for help!!

Situation: BB curve 8320, new OS installed 4.5, NO data plan but want to have wifi working.e.g. web browser and app. ('coz there are only two places I would be in, home and work place, both have wifi). WIFI networks are connected.

Option, advanced, Host Routing Table : Empty, (Registration sent)
Service Book: Wi-Fi TCP/IP browser [browserC... Active
Browser: Default browser configuration: (empty)

On desktop: No Browser Icon,
By switching application to Browser: says "Your device does not currently have any Browser Configuration Service Book Entries".

Do I have to register with my carrier and buy a data plan to have this work?

Without THE BlackBerry Data Plan, all you will get is the hotspot browser to work on WiFi. You still need the Data Plan for email push, many applications and most data functions.
