yet wifi is disabled for all other BB's? Why is Rogers making thier services so device specific? There's no technical reason why the 8120 can't do wifi browsing on the Rogers network, but yet they allow it on the Bold?

To my knowledge, WiFi isn't disabled on any BlackBerry that has it built-in.
Are you saying the Rogers 8120 has crippled WiFi?

That's what I would like to know as well^


Are you sure you have it set up right on it? Like in your browser settings you have it set to wifi browser? You should have no issues at all getting onto the internet with wifi on the 8120

Hey Cory... are we still on for a June 25th launch declaration,
Why is this BB such a "G-14 classified" affair?
