Re: Applications without activation of BB services

Without a BB service there will be very little you can do on the phone apart from phone and text.

 

I believe there are a few apps you can install like UberSocial for twitter and Opera Browsert for a web browser which might work but for the full experiance you will need to add the blackberry data plan.

 

In the UK at least the BB bolt on costs the same as a normal data bolt on in most cases.

Re: Applications without activation of BB services

You must have the BlackBerry data plan, NOT a generic data plan, in order to get the RIM push email functions you are looking for, as well as addtional BlackBerry data services such as the internet browser, Facebook for BlackBerry, BlackBerry Messenger, and much more.

 

What is an auto dictionary? Do you mean a dictionary application which defines words for you?

Yes, there are many choices in AppWorld and at mobihand.com, dictionaries for many languages.
