My personal phone (Bold 9780) has no data. When I first tried using FB, BBM, Twitter, etc, none of them would even open. They all told me I needed BIS for them to work. Then I upgraded the OS to the newest release of OS 6. Then I got notifications to upgrade each of the applications (FB, Twitter, etc), and they all work over Wi-Fi now except BBM. BBM now opens but I can't add any contacts or message anyone.. Shazam is another one that works over wi-fi as well. Another one that still doesn't work over wi-fi is google maps. I used it to use on my Nokia E71 over wi-fi all the time, but nada on my Bold.
