Is it actually possible to connect "through" BBM with no BlackBerry internet service. I have two standalone Blackberry phones with WIFI access only. My mobile service provider is not a BIS provider. I uderstand why email doesn't work but I'm not clear on BBM.
I appear to be able to register and get status "Access Allowed" but nothing more.
Does RIM have a test server that can be used by developers for testing BBM?

The BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha allows the use of BBM over WiFi without a BlackBerry data plan. BlackBerry Smartphones require a sim card with a BlackBerry data plan in order to use BBM.
