list 3rd party Wi-Fi apps that don't need ANY data plan

[ Edited ]

so far, the only one I know of is Live Search

you can download it here

 

(note: in Options, network configuration parameters must be changed to "Direct HTTP" instead of "default" and check "Use only WiFi interface")

 

I can't use BlackBerry's "Maps", because I don't have a data plan;  however, the "Traffic" & "Maps" of Live Search is a great alternative!

 

if you know of other 3rd party Wi-Fi apps that don't require ANY data plan (APN, BES, MDS, IPPP for BIBS, WAP, etc.), post them here.

 

thanks!

SOTI Pocket Controller-Pro for BlackBerry is a Wi-Fi app that doesn't need any data plan.  It allows you to remote control your BlackBerry from your PC or laptop using USB or Wi-Fi.  It has some pretty slick features for presentations but I use it mainly for simulating BBM on your desktop.
