    You can run most apps anywhere, but in answer to your question...yes you can.

    Watch out for some "Free" Wifi spots as you may not be able to run some apps. For example, at Borders books I can't run apps like Amazon, Savvy Shopper, Speed Test or BettrFlickr.

    And wifi uses less battery power than going thru the cell network so you should use it when you can. Oh, and it is faster too.

    wifi = wireless internet
    3g = wireless internet from Verizon via satellites

    and when you say you have no Verizon service are you talking about phone reception? or 3g service?
