You need a data plan to use most of the built-in applications including BBM, MSN, Facebook, Twitter, and Email. The web browser, YouTube and a great many 3rd party apps will work over Wi-Fi alone.

You cannot use BBM via WiFi without a BlackBerry Internet Service data plan through your provider. This is the only way that services that use the BlackBerry server for data transfer can be enabled. So, that's why BBM, Facebook, Twitter, and e-mail are not going to work while you are on WiFi.
The reason you can use the Browser and YouTube (which uses the browser anyways) is because after BB6 was launched, the browser was able to switch between using BIS for data transfer, and using WiFi directly.

i have my BB9320 and used to have a monthly unlimited data plan. After couple of days i bought a pocket wifi. i tried to turned off my data service and tried to connect with the wifi and my emails, bbm and im's seemed to be working fine. after realizxing such, i quit subscribing to the data plan as i can bring my pocket wifi anywhere to give signal to my BB. But after the data had been cut off, i cant access the IM's BBM and even Email which i was able to do before even DATA SERVICES were turned off. My understanding is that i can use BBm and emails even im on my wifi connection only coz i was able to do so. CAN SOMEONE HELP ME. its on OS7
