    I own a BB 8900, but I do not have a data plan, I have the unlimited text and instant messaging plan which allows be to use BBM. I cannot access the BBM download links through WiFi and was wondering if there was any other way I could download the new BBM 5.0 onto my device... Thanks!

    Ummm... if the file is small enough someone could possibly send it to you.

    Do you have BB Desktop Manager & a USB cable?

    I'm sorry, I'm not too familiar with blackberries and wifi.

    Have you tried the blackberry website directly, instead of other sites? www.blackberry.com/send/messenger.

    Also, are you at a computer that has BB Desktop Manager?

    I can upload a zipped file, that way you can download and manually install.

    I'll try to help as much as I can hun.
