    Ok guys I'm new to crackberry so im not sure if this thread goes into this category...but general discussions so i guess so...

    Ok now i dont have a blackberry but i do have a friend who is getting a new bb [hone and is giving me his old one...i am getting the Blackberry curve 8900...Now my question is...I am not gonna get the BB data plan since it is 40$ a month and that is just way too much...But no one comment on that and pelase focus on the question...My friend used to have blackberry service on this phone he is giving me...so when i get it it wont have a data plan...But can i still use bbm over wifi...because i read somewhere that i need service books on the blackberry to use bbm over wifi but since he used to have service the phone would have those service books...so will i be able to use bbm over wifi?

    No bbm can only be used when you have a BIS plan

    Nope. You still need to have a BlackBerry Data Plan active in order to use BlackBerry Data features even over WiFi.
