Default Questions about 8820 and Wi-Fi from a n00b

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone.

I haven't done much reasearch on my question(s) and what very little I have done wasn't very helpful. It's been about 5 years since I've owned a BB (and not a day goes by that I don't miss it), so I've been thinking about buying an 8820 through ATT/Cingular when they come out. (Yes I am aware about the fiasco, but it won't stop me from buying one if it serves my needs)

I noticed at ATT they have a voice rate, a data rate, and a wifi rate. Not happy about a separate wifi rate but I am not sure how it works.

Can I be at home talking on my BB connected through my Wi-Fi network? If that's possible, does that mean my minutes won't be racking up? (If that's the case, I could justify going with a lower voice plan to offset the $19.99 Wi-Fi monthly charge)

Is there a good website that explains how the techology works to a n00b like me?

I am thinking after deciding I want 2100 minutes on a family plan that it would be quite costly.
$99 Voice + $39.99 Data + $19.99 Wi-Fi.

Thanks for your help in advance
