BlackBerry services that are available over Wi-Fi connections

For more information about supported services and features, contact your organization's wireless service provider. Not all BlackBerry® data plans support Wi-Fi® access to BlackBerry data services.

When you configure a Wi-Fi network to open a connection (with or without a VPN connection) to the BlackBerry Router, you can keep all data transfers entirely within the enterprise Wi-Fi network and reduce the routing required.
