Found the answer to my 8820 question. Never knew there were two different networks.
SO my next question is this. My contract is up with VW on the 25th. Should I get a BB from them or switch carriers. Are there favorites? I am in Phoenix, so all coverage is good here. I really like WiFi features that are available on GMS networks( HA sound like I know what I am talking about!) What would my fellow BB'ers do in my situation?
