Well, to be honest I'm quite happy with my Bold, but few issues blocked me to sell my E90. One on this is the wi-fi problem. I know I'm not the only one. I mean, why is it so difficult to let the Bold work with my wi-fi router (used with E90, E71 and other wireless enabled mobile phone)? I tried everything. People are even say that to use the wi-fi, you should in any case be under gprs/edge (whatever it is) coverage... why?!!? For the BIS to work? Ok, but what if I just need to browse the net?
I want to browse the net with the radio module off.
I don't know. It's a very nice and confortable device, but some features let me think about. I think I'll go back to Symbian or Windows Mobile. Yeah I know, those OS sucks, but at least those telephones work as they are supposed to.
For now bye-bye RIM. Hope to come back to BB soon.
Sorry for this post, hope to have a nice sleep tonite, so maybe tomorrow morning I'll still wake up with my BB alarm clock :-D

In my expeience you can use the WIFI with the phone radio turned off but not without a SIM card inserted. You dont need network coverage just a SIM card in the phone. The SIM doesnt need to be Blackberry enabled either.
