Hello Shayak

 

BBM 7 works on 3G or EDGE ( your Carrier network ) , but the Voice calling feature available on BBM 7 is designed to work over an wifi network . So if you want to use BBM Voice call then you had to do it over wifi.

Please be advised that aside from BlackBerry Messenger 7, you must subscribe to BlackBerry Internet Service to take advantage of all the native BlackBerry applications (BlackBerry App World, BlackBerry Protect, etc.).

 

Make sure as well that you see the BlackBerry logo beside the network (3G with BlackBerry logo) in exception of EDGE and GPRS (maybe because of the lack of space where the BlackBerry logo should be).

 

The network should be in all caps as well like 3G, EDGE, GPRS, H+ --- instead of 3g, edge, gprs, h+.

No. There's no way to steal data when you're not connected to wifi. Off wifi, you use have a BIS data plan. You've been told that on other threads.
