    Do you need to use the internet to use blackberry applications?

    I have a couple questions about a couple applications. For example, the blackberry dictionary and the blackberry language translator, as well as the blackberry currency converter. Do you use the internet when you search a word on this application or whatever. I'd like to know because I don't have a data plan and don't want to have a really large phone bill.

    You will have to try them and see. Some apps are tied in with a web server so that the app can be small in size on your device while you can access the large amounts of data via your wifi or data connection.

    ... some do and some don't... if it requires activation through a server i.e. fancy character, berrybuzz then i would say yes... if the apps are pin based apps and you can crack them, then it is better to set the connection permission to 'deny'.. a dangerous and credit eating app is i.e. font application because the carrier will charge for downloading fonts.. what i do is set the connection permission to 'deny' but have the .tff file in the memory card and install from there.. just my experience though...
