Can a blackberry continue to work and get data over wifi after it has been deactivated?
I hope to be getting a new phone within the next few months. I've been using a blackberry curve for a while and I've heard that data won't work once the device is no longer activated with a carrier, even over wifi. I was hoping to still be able to use the berry as a simple email/messaging device around the house over my wifi after I moved on to a different phone. Can anybody confirm this is true or not?

I just got my blackberry yesterday. I logged into facebook, and everything was synced automatically, including my contacts and calendars.
I fixed my calendars, but I checked my contact list, and I now have many many duplicates and some are gone! Some contacts have their first name and another contact's last name, and I'm not sure whose numbers they are. I use google sync for my contacts and calendar, but the contacts synced like this to google and they are messed up everywhere! Is there anything that I can do? Thanks
