    I just picked up the new BB 8900/Javelin.
    I wanna add on email and other shit... but it says I need the BB Data Plan..
    Anyway I can bypass this and just use it solely on my wi-fi?

    if you have wifi in your area, then I don't see why you need a data plan unless you want access where ever you are.

    2 possible solutions:

    1) I assume you're on tmobile... you can call tmo and ask them to add the "Feature Enabler", I believe this is a service book that allows wifi, mms, and some other things to work without a data plan

    2)or do what I do. Try to get the Tzones plan ($5.99/mo) added to your account. Everything works except email. Browsing is great

    hope that helps

    A friend of mine had a BB without the data plan on AT&T...but I guess that doesn't help the OP.

    BB without data is kinda useless.

    What I'd really like to see is them not nessecary jail breaking the blackberry. I'd like to see people doing how they first started cracking apps with the iphone. There are several quality apps for both devices. I have my iphone jb'd so I get "free" apps on that. I'd like to do the same with the blackberry.
