    Recieved an unlocked BB 9700 as a gift and would like to know if I can just put my ATT sim card in and use it without buying the data plan? Can I use WiFi without the data plan?

    At the least it will function as a phone.

    I Agree with Johnling it is a flip of a coin but you are at minimum going to at least have the phone side.

    as of current yes you can, but rumor is come September AT&T will start enforcing Data Plans on all smart phones.

    From what I hear, AT&T won't be able to support many more smartphones on their network unless they are going to add infrastructure.

    At this point, I don't really need the data plan, but I want to use the WiFi at my convenience. I don't think my kids thought about the monthly data plan cost when they bought the phone.
