    I have just bought a torch 9800 at walmart and I unlocked it. I do not have a carrier because I am working in SE Asia and I am always using sim cards with no data plans. I am hoping to use the torch with wifi, and I am wondering if it is possible to use BBM and set up an email account on the phone with no carrier or data plan? My email accounts setup only gives me the enterprise option. And I am not able to use any applications and Blackberry Messenger.

    The BIS account is set up through a carrier. I think the phone is useless without it. Good luck with that one.

    Yup Email and BBM have to go through RIM's servers. The only way to go that is to have a carrier connect you via a BIS account.
