Without BlackBerry data plan you won't be able to any of the BlackBerry device functionality except voice calls and SMS texts.

Re: picture messages

Hi,

 

MMS has nothing to do with the BB data service.

 

MMS will work exactly like other phones.

 

 

Contact your service provider to ensure you have access to both WAp and MMS.

Without both (and ensure your IT policy doesnt restict them either) it wont work.
