Can I access the internet thru wifi without a data plan? I can not get access to my yahoo messenger on my 8900. It tells me that it service not enabled for this handheld. Where can I get applications? But I love the phone.

Wifi works with the 8900

You should be able to connect to wifi and go on the web.
if you have a wifi at home you can connect to that no problem.
i have the data plan but the phone works with my wifi connection when i turn off my mobile network. if you have any problems connecting to your own wifi try to remove the password off the router.

I can access my wifi but I just cant get into the internet. Is it because I have not subscribed to the T Mobile data plan? I thought that I can access the internet thru my wifi WITHOUT the data plan?

Problem with Router?

You can definitely connect through Wi-Fi alone. Maybe you are connecting to your router, and your router doesn't have a good connection to the internet?

I'd try a friends wireless to ensure its not your connection ...
