Maybe I'm missing something could someone shed some light on the subject.
The Storm is advertised as a 3g phone, but downloading webpages and attachments with the Storm is still faster with WiFi than over the Verizon CDMA network. Some say that the 2g EDGE is even faster. The fact is that 3g network speed is dependant on 2 things: the phone you use and the network speed where you are located. People in LA may get faster than people in Atlanta on ATT's 3g network in other words. WiFi only depends on the phone. Older Blackberrys weren't very fast with WiFi, newer ones are faster because of the processor in the phone. Samsung phones may be way faster on 3g than Blackberrys (not known for being all that fast on 3g btw).
