According to what I have read, when you are connected to WiFi, data goes that route.

And your WiFi connection might be faster than your network connection.

Ditto to both the above. You should notice significantly faster page loads with the browser and faster file downloads.

I too understand the BlackBerry will use wifi in priority over the mobile network, but that is not a guarantee that some data will not be exchanged on the mobile network if it is enabled.
