Block of Twitter , Whatsapp etc

We have a curve 8520 with a prepaid card. We are aware of the fact that we can not use all the functions without a specific BlackBerry contract.


But, when we are at home on the Wifi it should work. It works one day after a reset (battery remove) and the he tells us that the contract does not support BB and therefore it is blocked. You would expect that trough WIFI at home these functionality should be available without a SIM CARD or any limitations from our contract with the provider.


Can anybody tell me something about this problem and suggest a solutions without having to get a full cotract , we want to stay on pre paid.

Re: Block of Twitter , Whatsapp etc

Twitter for BlackBerry and WhatsApp both require subscription to the BlackBerry Data Plan, regardless of WiFi.

Have you contacted your carrier to see if they offer blackberry services on prepay?
