ATT Curve Wi-Fi Question
 
Hi All,

Does the ATT curve not support Wi-Fi because of a hardware issue or is it entirely in the software?

hardware, but its not an issue, its just not included.

Yea, thats just weird. I always wondered why they released a "new" curve, the 8310, and didnt include wifi like the T-Mobile 8320. It just seems illogical to me.

Is there any way to put wi-fi on it?

Because there's GPS in the 8310 instead of WiFi.

No.

Well, if you wanted WIFI, all you had to do was get an unlocked 8320, right? Or does it work like that?

Correct.

You can unlock a Tmobile 8320 and use it on the AT&T Network, there probably wont me UMA Support for it.

Wirelessly posted (at&t BlackBerry 8310)

But if you got the unlocked 8320, you wouldn't have GPS. You will have to decide which of those features is more important to you. Sounds like you would be better off with the T-Mobile curve though.

I'm on TMO and bought an unlocked AT&T curve. I bought it because TMO doesn't have the red one. WiFi would be useless to me. Didn't even think about it having the GPS but I've been playing with it and decided I really like it. (Especially after doing John Clark's free up max memory protocol. Part of that takes out the AT&T vendor file and loads BB Maps. Works like a charm.)

Anyway, buy which ever version you want regardless of your carrier. I have previously had unbranded phones and they were frequently a pain to get all the settings correct for internet, etc. With the blackberry, it's a piece of case since the service books take care of it all.
