    Go to your secondary screen (app screen) and rearrange your icons (use the move)... the top 6 will be your main 6 on the home screen.

    BBM only works with a BB Data Plan.

    Check out the Blackberry 101 lessons... under the "Blackberry Help" at the top of every page... I also added a link to my signature below.

    No, all data you will need a BB data plan. Wifi will only work or browsing using the hotspot browser... That's all you can use with wifi... I'm pretty sure msn will not work as it requires a service book. Unless you get a 3rd party app like beejives IM to get msn which will work with wifi

    Yes, bbm, msn, fb etc. will work using wifi. Set your browser to "hotspot browser" and your browser identification to "BlackBerry." Then you are good to go.

    BBM requires a data plan, the data goes through Blackberry Servers (BIS or BES). WiFi does not remove this requirement.

    Sorry, it seems I misunderstood the OP. My data plan is currently disconnected and bbm still works over wifi. I guess you have to have a data plan and PIN set up in the first place.
