    Ok so I am leaving for the Bahamas today. I have free WiFi at the hotel. I was wondering if I turned off my mobile network connection, and only used wifi, if I would get any weird charges or anything?

    And would I still be able to use blackberry messenger if I'm only running WiFi.

    I don't want to keep my mobile network on, because of the roaming charges for phone calls and text messages.

    It SHOULD work, but connecting to the RIM over wifi is not always an easy thing to do, it can be problematic. Make sure to install a 3rd party browser on your device before you go to be on the safe side as that should work either way, plus streaming music apps usually work either way such as Pandora & Slacker. BUT you SHOULD be ok. Check out the Wifi Forum here for some tips.

    I did it with my Storm2 when I stayed in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico for a few weeks. Also worked in Europe/Egypt. BBM didn't work, but my e-mail did and browsing.
