    I don't have a cell plan or even a Blackberry phone, but I was wondering if I could use BBM with the playbook just using the Wi-fi?

    No. At least not now, though I'm not fully up on what will be possible with the new OS 2.

    No you cant use BBM without having a Blackberry phone. The feature is exclusive for a BB phone, so if your BB phone is not connected to the Playbook you wont be able to access the BBM. In other words the PB by itself also cannot use BBM, the phone is obligatory.

    Native BBM WILL COME. It just won't come right now.

    For BBM to work on the PlayBook, you'll need a BlackBerry phone with an active BIS/BES plan. A BB phone by itself won't do the trick either.
