    No. You must have a data plan active on your account to access the internet. BB's do not run on the standard GPRS internet servers. They use a Blackberry server for all data access. The only thing you can do without data access is send sms messages since MMS also uses the BB server.

    I've talked with someone who was on a network somewhere with no bb data plan available so they had gprs internet service through their carrier and were using Opera Mini to access web pages and Gmail for their email. They couldn't do any OTA downloads or anything but...maybe they were lying.
