The BB Bold (9650), Curve (8530, 9330), and Storm (9550) are all wif-fi capable, so yes, you will have some functionality through your wireless connection. Some things (BBM, for example) will not work on wi-fi, and if you have no signal, then you wouldn't be able to use the phone functions either - including texting.
