You'd need a 8x20 device. 8820,8320,or 8120 ... if of course you're looking to use a BlackBerry.

How do I figure that out? I'm not really into phones, I just got a really good deal on this thing so I bought it. I just started reading a bit about it and became more interested.

Thanks

On the home screen go to Options > About

It'll tell you the model number there.

Well, it looks like I have an 8100. Does that mean no wifi for me?

If you get a $19.95 Blackberry Data Plan you'll get all your email delivered right to your new Pearl....Otherwise yeah, it's a cool phone with an organizer.
