I hope tht you realize you posed in a months old thread.
As for WiFi, some cariers require that you have BB data plan before you get the WiFi service book which allows the WiFi connection. Check with your carrier. Also try the hotspot browser or OperaMini rather than the BB browser.
In any case, you need a BB data plan for the RIM services such as email, BBM, BB Browser, FaceBook, maps, most IM programs, etc.
