    Unfortunately, no. If you get a data plan, then remove the SIM, you can use WIFI for BBM. Maybe you can get a friends SIM (with a data plan from Rogers) put it in, then resend the service books, take out the SIM and try BBM.
    Neolantis and Joe Jerde like this.

    I've heard of doing this, never tried it though as I always use my data.

    I don't think so, but I am going to see if i could borrow my friends SIM for a while

    EDIT: Sorry, I thought you said BES...and yeah, my carrier supports it, I just don't have a data plan

    As long as you pay for the data plan .. The service books is available and in ur device but if you deactivated the service or stopped paying , service books would be deleted by your Carrier !
    But try the above trick , it may work
