Default Bold or storm, this is the question...

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys!

i'm from spain and i have a question,i have read a lot but im a bit confused.
I'm gonna get a BB Bold or a Storm(i only need to choose)from a friend working in Vodafone , i need to unlock the BB beacuse im using orange, but i think this will not be a problem, isn't?

I'm between this 2 models, i now that the Bold is better CPU and Wifi but the Storm has bigger screen ans is more "interactive".

Im not going to pay any data plan so here is my question to decide what to choose:

Can i use the wifi in the bold without a data plan?

i know that i can not use the push email and a lot other application made for BB if i don't have any data plan, but i actually don't care about this.
I want to know if i can surt with the wifi and see my mail from the browser, i also read that i may dowload another browser as opera-mini.

I have read so much and im confused, some peopl says that i can't use the wifi witouth a data plan and the services books and some says that i can.

Regarding the service books everybody is talking about: is this anything i can download from "somewere"

I don't know nothing about BB i have allways use HTC with WM.

I appreciate you help!

I havenxxx8217;t found a good reason to use a touch screen. I have had 1 full touch screen and didnxxx8217;t like it (LG Vu), so I went to a touch w/a keyboard, didnxxx8217;t like it (HTC Fuze). Ya u get a bigger screen but it has finger prints all over it. Also you might want to look in to all the issues w/ Wi-Fi people are having.

It is the better way to choose BOLD not STORM.

I know, I cannot recommend choosing a blackberry over some other device without a data plan - but if you're convinced that you have to have a blackberry, then the Bold should at least offer you some hope of using it with Wifi without a data plan.

Honestly? A bold. Till RIM sorts out their touchscreen issues, you're better off with a bold
