    So my friend sold me a Blackberry Curve 8520 for $100 today. I'm with rogers and put in me Pay As You Go Sim card, and everything was working.

    I have the BBM messenger App and it shows me my Pin and Everything, but i seems like I can't add anyone. I don't have a Data Plan, just Texting. I was wondering how could I use BBM over Just Wifi, no data.

    Also,
    I downloaded the FaceBook Application and it always gives me an Error saying It can't connect to facebook servers, I'm connected to Wifi. Any Ideas?

    Btw, I'm new.

    Facebook and bbm will not work on WiFi

    You will need a bb data plan to use these features
    Once you have a data plan, BBM will work on WiFi

    Would it be possible if I bought a $2 day Pass for 50mb of Data. Then get BBM and Facebook to work only off WiFi. Then I wont pay for the $2 day pass again?

    No, you need to have an active BlackBerry data plan because the apps use RIM servers. Your pass would allow you to use the apps for the day only. Once your data is gone the service is gone.

    Its like your pay as you go running out, and you expecting your phone to still work because you have the phone number and sim, but no minutes.

    Is there no hack we can do to make this possible? Is there any "jailbreak" available for the blackberry?

    no, there is NOT

    its a RIM server item... you cant HACK RIM.

    buy a data plan or keep smsing people.

    As the others have said before me, I don't think there's a way to make it work via WiFi.

    Nope. It uses a Blackberry server too.

    Do you need a BlackBerry DATA plan, or Can I use a normal Data plan?

    @sickboy: For email,you can try logic mail via wifi.
    @Chamilism:
    I believe it has to be a blackberry plan to take full advantage of all the apps.

    You need a BlackBerry data plan: BIS. A generic data plan will not work.

    Yeah, you can. But you won't get push email, notifications, or anything you'd get with the BB mail app.
