Will applications like whatsapp run on blackberry curve 9360 only using wifi connection, or do you have to activate any blackberry internet services  for that?

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Any BB-proprietary services (e.g., email, native browser, BBM, etc.) will require a proper BIS plan from your carrier, even if you only use them via WiFi. Many add-on and 3rd party apps likewise require a proper data plan, while others can be configured to truly use WiFi only and not require a data plan. The requirements are always changing, so you are best off to make a list of those specific things you desire, and then inquire about each specifically rather than asking about "applications like". If they are not a BB-developed app (there are very few of those), then you need to inquire of the app developer directly.

As for WhatsApp, I have a recollection that it requires a BIS plan, but I don't use it so can't say specifically. But, again, asking that app developer would be your best bet.

Good luck!
