if your sole connection to the internet either for browsing or otherwise then you do not need a dataplan

you'll need the data plan only if you would want to surf the net on GPRS

hope this helped

pls rate the solution if it was any help

Using ths phone current w/o data service

Hi Alan.

The phone should still be partly usable:
  1. If you have access to WiFi, turn on the phone WiFi and you should be able to get online and use the majority of data / app services on the phone.
  2. Depending on the carrier, you may be listed as 'no data plan', and just charged ad-hoc rates for data use - i.e. you would still have data access, but without a rate plan, the carrier will just charge you according to it's billing structure - for instance I know AT&T adds 1GB chunks on, at $10/Gb, on my sister's iPhone plan, when she exceeds her monthly limit.
  3. Use of the phone for voice and/or messaging will depend on whether, in saying you don't have data service, if that also means you don't have a plan at all, or just lack a data plan. The phone part should work fine even with no data service, so long as you're in a coverage area. Texting and cost will depend again on how your carrier handles it. Most will allow it and charge you a bunch for each message in or out. Pure profit for them.
  4. If you have no connection at all, you can likely still use the phone on WiFi, and might be able to boot-strap to voice with apps like Skype, and messaging with apps like WhatsApp. (I don't have affiliation with any of those companies, so they are single examples out of many options
Hoping that gives you a clearer picture of your options.
Happy Holidays!

Why no connection to data unless on wifi, says no connection what to do

Go to -> Settings -> Mobile Data & ensure that your data plan is turned on. It is possible that it is unselected which would not allow you to use mobile data and only WiFi.

You need a password or a network key to piggy-back on someone else network. You can also contact your cellphone service provider and sign up for one of their data plan. This way you will have access to the Internet. Sorry if this answer is not even close to what you want.

How do i get wireless internet on my phone

Pls define the phone Brand/model.
In general, there are 2 means of "wireless internet:
a) Through DATA plan of your mobile provider
b) Through Wifi

Let's see how to reach these 2:
Data plan means that you can get DATA through your mobile connection. So you need to check your contract or ask your mobile provider if you already DO HAVE a DATA PLAN activated. If not, pls do so.
You also need to make the needed settings change in the phone (set APN,e.t.c.) based on the instructions by your mobile provider.
Take into account that in general a DATA PLAN costs much more than a LANDLINE internet connection (e.g. a DSL connection) that you could have from your home, so it's OK for mail and faceboko browsing but perhaps too expensive to download movies, games, e.t.c.

Wifi is a wireless local area network. It can be password_protected or Open. Usually cafeterias and other shops or central squares offer Open Wifi for everyone to connect to.
Also, when one has a Landline DSL connection, there is a Wireless router installed, giving the possibility to connect to this DSL wireless (with WiFi).
So you could even connect to your neighbor's wifi if that is Open.

Pls rate this solution.
Many thnx.

Can't use wi-fi without data plan? on blackberry bold 9700 can't transfer pictures from laptop to blackberry either?

you can surf the net on a wifi network even of you dont have a data plan. turn the wifi on then select "set up wifi network" then just follow the instructions to be able to connect to the network. if you still can't after doing this, it might be because the signal of the network is not that strong.
regarding the bluetooth, go to media, then press the menu button (the bb logo), then select "receive via bluetooth" for your bb to receive the file from your laptop/other phones.

Just bought a blackberry today and it wont let me on the internet, it says something about Wi-Fi connection. What do i do?

BlackBerries have different browsing profiles. Most likely your default is set to WiFi or HotSpot browser. Also, if you don't have a data plan with your carrier that might explain it. Without a data plan these phones can only connect through WiFi. Try going into the browser, selecting options and making sure that the default browser is Internet Browser.
