1) for use with wi-fi only. i.e when your not near a wi-fi point it wont connect to EDGE, use HOTSPOT BROWSER.
2)No, if you set it up as INTERNET BROWSER (or blackberry browser) it will use wi-fi when available (to check you should see wi-fi in the top corner, if you cant, press U) and will use GPRS/3G when not near wi-fi.
3)check the app free memory (options - memory) if it is low, pull the battery out for 30 seconds, put back in. use the alt+esc to check for running apps. make sure apps are closed properly and not running in the background when not in use.
4)Some do, some don't.
5)3G can eat up the battery, but for a call of about an hour can drain the battery by maybe 10%. longer calls, drain the battery faster.
look into using the sleep function (press the button on the top [MUTE button] until it says "entering sleep mode..." on the screen. this saves battery life while still enabling calls/emails etc to get through. to exit, press the MUTE button again.
look into upgrading to a newer OS.
"That's it then. Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings... and call off Christmas."
