Re: How to connect to BBM through wi-fi without activating mobile network ?

Changing browser configuration from WAP to Hotspot isnt really a solution. this has got nothing to do with BBM.

I'm using most of the applications like facebook, whatapp on WiFi without having a data plan. when i try to connect BBM, I'm getting a message "A temporary BBM server error has occurred".

It seems that BBM needs an active data plan from blackberry to work over Wifi. I'm yet to find a workaround.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

BBM and often the browser both require subscription to a BB-level data plan from a carrier, even if you only use the services via WiFi. BBM and other services are proprietary to BBs only, and that additional plan is required to enable those services. Not that this applies only to legacy devices...new BB10 devices do not require BIS in order to provide the BB proprietary services.

 

Good luck!
