    hello everybody,

    am an owner of curve 8520 and bold 9900, i have a data plan on both and i tried to use BBM on the WiFi and it worked, but im wondering that if it can work outside f my country, ill be going to Canada for 5 days so i wont be able to get a sim there, so can the BBM still work on wifi if i have a WiFi there and i have the same data plan i have in my country now, so will i be able to use BBM using WiFi ??

    and second question if yes will it differ from curve to bold or just the same??

    Thank you

    Yes.. WIFI will work on your blackberry to use data... you don't need a new plan.. and all u need to do is turn off roaming to make sure you arent charged for data.. turn on wifi and connect..... its the same on every phone that has wifi enabled... you will be fine

    As long as the servicestatus says:

    Blackberry Internet Service
    Connection: Wi-Fi

    Then you're good
