    If I have WiFi access I can use my browser, but things like email, no. I've had the network shut off since November but still use my Style when I'm at home on WiFi.

    I still fire up my old 9650 to update my wordpress and whatnot for the sake of nostalgia or what have you, and it's not activated, just on WiFi. Just as BergerKing mentioned, email doesn't seem to work (unless of course you go thru the given providers mobile website.)

    As long as you aren't doing anything that requires BIS services, (like email for example), then many BlackBerry data functions will still work just fine on wifi only. Browsing is the best example, or apps like Pandora.

    I believe on a brand new device that has never had BIS data, browser won't work.

    I think you need at least to have a BIS plan once to be able to download the service books.

    If you have the service book and cancel data, the service book entries shhould still be on the device.
