    Yes, the 8900 will work on WIFi without the data plan. You will not,however, be able to use BB messenger, the push email and certain apps. Try to do a search as this topic has been covered extensivley.

    Just noticed that he's with AT&T. Why does it seem that the majoirty of WiFi problems come from this carrier ???

    They probably don't want to pay for the plan

    I got my blackberry for work. I'm no longer there but I just can not give the phone up. Since I no longer work there email will not be as important to me, I get wifi everywhere I am, why pay? If you have a bb with data plan you have sms so you don't really need bbm although I will miss it
