I got a question about the 3G/wifi for blackberry bold 9700. I want to use only wifi (since I don't have internet on my phone itself) and not wanting to pay extra money for my provider to go on 3G. 

So I was wondering, what or how can I turn that 3G off and only use Wifi?



Thanks in advance,

Re: Wifi/3G

You won't be able to do much.  Without the blackberry data plan, you won't be able to use email, messenger apps, the browser, bbm or much else.  You'll need this plan to use the blackberry on WiFi only.  Give your carrier a call to confirm this, but from what I can tell, without the data plan, you won't be able to do much with the phone.
