    Hey guys new here, just got my bold after selling my iphone so far love it but cannot connect via wifi, do I HAVE to have the bb data plan for it to work? after some searching it seems like the answer is 50/50. thanks in advance.

    btw i dont have the plan, just never use it. all I need is IM and text, or i can always browse wifi if i can get it to work.

    You need the data plan. Wifi accompanies the data plan but it's not free. If wifi access was free, think of all the $$ carriers would lose. People would just do email, bbm and surf using wifi.

    Do you have to have a T-Mobile @ home router? to be able to hook up to the wifi and make VOIP phone calls? also does T-Mobile Charge you for these calls?

    I connect to my wifi router and surf this way. I even disable the connection with my mobile operator
