Yeah, it should allow that to happen. I have the data plan, but when I turn off data services I can still use wifi.

I just got a Curve yesterday. I got the data plan, but I didn’t realize you could hook up to wifi. Do a lot of people use their Blackberry to get on Fluther? Its hard to get used to but I like it so far.

Depends on which model Curve™ you have…
8300 series – Wifi support on select models.
8500 series – Wifi enabled
8900 series – Wifi support

For me, on a Curve 8310 (no Wifi), I find that the builtin Blackberry Browser is poorly supported by the Fluther site. I cannot, for example, actually login. Same is true for the Opera Mini.

Personally, I consider it more a shortcoming of the device/browser than of Fluther. That said, there are plenty of other sites I can sign in to just fine. Still, web surfing on the 8310 is painful even on the best of days.

Mine is an 8330. I can get on Fluther just fine.I haven’t found any sites that I frequent that I was unable to log onto so far, thankfully.
