    Looking on buying 2 new BB and try to have a setup where we would use them over wifi to limit our dependency on carriers and plans.
    We want chat and voice calls so:
    1. Works on wifi only? (limite the minutes on plan)
    2. As some voip solutions can the call sent through data instead of voice plan in the case no wifi are availables?
    3.Can chat be accomplished without a sms plan ? (normally a ripeoff from plans)

    Any other suggestions, workaround, other apps?
    We are near Montreal Canada.

    Ofcourse yes! You can use BBM on just WiFi if you have iOS, Android or a BlackBerry 10 smartphone. Chat and Voice calls both will work on just WiFi, and no data plan needed.

    OP, note that video chat only works between iOS<>Android devices, or BB10<>BB10 devices. BB10 devices cannot video chat with iOS or Android devices.

    Thanks for the reply.

    With Dtek50 or 60 what would be the lightest plan I could get to be the most independant with unlocked phones bought directly from BB?
    Any idea of the best flexible carrier in Quebec (other that the big 5)?
    If I want to change plan and carrier how do I manage Sim cards?
    BBM messages seems to use data / wifi (true?) If I want a data plan only, any problems?
