    Maj1c,

    No wifi, sorry. Wireless off turns off your radio (aka airplane mode).

    Who is your wireless provider? Do you have any IM / Instant Messaging applications on your device now? If you have a data plan you can get AIM here:
    AIM service for BlackBerry smartphones can be downloaded to the BlackBerry smartphone using the wireless network. Make sure your browser is connnecting to the URL http://www.blackberry.com/instantmessaging/aim.

    Note: The URL is designed for downloading over the wireless network and cannot be downloaded using your computer.

    Anything that you think would require data sent over the network will charge you. Everything else is free I recommend searching google for some free blackberry software. There are some great games out there. Anyway, enjoy your new phone
