I Live Pakistan Ihave Blackberry Bold 9700 Its wifi Is on But not working
Hi and Welcome to the Community!
BBM and often the browser both require subscription to a BB-level data plan from a carrier, even if you only use the services via WiFi. BBM and other services are proprietary to BBs only, and that additional plan is required to enable those services. Not that this applies only to legacy devices...new BB10 devices do not require BIS in order to provide the BB proprietary services.

This makes no sense to me. Why you need a data plan to access BBM through wifi. Doesn't having a data plan kinda defeat the purpose of using wifi. I don't have a data plan because I want to use only wifi and I'm hearing from you I can't. This is upsetting and wrong. This is the only phone I've ever had that requires this and the reason is simple, self explainatory.
