    nope the only way this will happen on edge while on a call is to be on wifi. gsm network will only do this in 3g mode or higher

    Only in 3G mode, not in EDGE (2G) mode, unless you are connected to a wifi hotspot.

    You don't have the whole data plan, maybe just the social thing that doesn't include all features. Talk to your carrier about adding the full data plan.

    BBM cannot work on wifi unfortunately ... BBM is attached to a server through rim and can only be accessed with a BIS data plan. Only apps and web are be used with wifi.

    Social Plan isn't a full BIS (Blackberry Internet Service) plan. I've got that kind of service here where you can choose either Social, Business, or Full/Unlimited BIS. You can only use BBM through wi-fi you're subscribed to Unlimited BIS.

    Data plan is different than BIS.

    BBM can work using Wi-Fi as long as you're connected to BIS unlimited plan. To make sure, just now I switched off my carrier network connection and used only Wi-Fi to send BBM message to one of my friend. My message was delivered.

    As FusionCal stated, BBM will absolutely work through WiFi, but you need to have a BIS / BES plan. If you don't have a BB package on your account, you won't be able to use BBM no matter what. I've been in places where I have no cellular signal, and on wifi I can make phone calls, send emails and texts, and even BBM messages.

    Yes, there are some apps that will work through wifi with no BIS / BES connection, but (as far as I know) all BB apps will take advantage of wifi if it's available.
