I don't understand. My iPod touch can connect to the internet by wifi and it has no carrier. I assumed my BB S2 would be able to do the same. Why can't I just turn on the wifi and connect to a wifi network. I relaize I wouldn't be able to use it as a phone.
And I didn't go to an iPhone just because of the OS issue. It was because I was tired of using a device which has such an awful interface and internet capabilities. I use the internet a lot on my smartphone and the iPhone is a revelation compared to the S2. I love the iPhone.
I just thought rather than sell my S2 I could give it to my partner to use aroundthe house on our wifi network.
