Default Wi-Fi?

Please Login to Remove!

I don't understand what the difference is between having WiFi on your phone (I have never used why) and the regular internet

It makes browsing so much better on wifi, plus if you have @Home with TMo then you can make unlimited calls since you have Wifi

Yeah, it doesn't matter for simple pages, but if there are lots of graphics it really helps.

Yes, one Wi - Fi on your phone is a big privilege, but I didn't have on my BB Curve 8310 and I wont to buy Wi-Fi USB antenna. Do you know this kind of USB Wi-Fi will work with my BB?

i had a BlackBerry 8800 on Orange UK, i found the GPS a good tool, when paired with BlackBerry maps, but since i was only on a 6MB/Month data plan, it wasnt all that practical.

I moved to the Curve 8320, 6 months ago, and have found the wifi function so much more useful.

Example: if you have an e-mail with large attachments, i found it easier to send them when i was on a wifi connection, as it didnt eat into my allowance, - also, it's handy for browsing the internet when your at home, (on the toliet for example) - as this also doesnt eat into your allowance.

Also: the JDWetherspoon pub chain in the UK, has free Wifi now, so its a good excuse to "work from home" ;)
