Arrow Two oddities!?!? I HAVE to use WiFi??

Please Login to Remove!

Hey folks, I've been running 5.0 .93 and it works great and everything. However, how come I am forced to turn on WiFi to get online when there are routers available?? That's a battery drainer over time, no??

Speaking of the browser, the BlackBerry option is gone, and only MediaNet, and this "HotSpot" browser are left. Am I missing a service book? I have it set to HotSpot, and from the 2nd menu (MediaNet/FireFox/BlackBerry), I selected BlackBerry...

I really like it, and it works...sort of. ;) I would just like to know about the browser and WiFi...

Thank you!
