Re: why 9930 uses data plan when i use wifi?

Even when you turn on data service while being Wi-Fi network all of your data traffic will be passed on through Wi-Fi. If you have BlackBerry data plan you'll see a BB logo beside the wi-fi signal icon. I also do the same while I'm on roaming.

ACTIVATION REQUIRED is being displayed as 9930 is a GSM/CDMA device (your one is primarily Verizon device) and probably you've inserted a GSM SIM card on to it. Hence, It will keep on displaying the message.
