Default wifi and browser help needed for BB Storm

Please Login to Remove!

I just bought an BB Storm. I have wifi at home. I am not able to figure out how wifi on storm gets connected to wifi at home. somehow I feel the software or link is missing in the Storm. And also, I am pretty sure the browser is not installed on my Storm. Any advice please.
Thank you.

It is missing, for sure, as the Storm does not contain any WiFi hardware.

So... you can't get WiFi on the Storm.

Wifi will be out in the next model, Storm 2. The only wifi phone is the Samsung Omnia, which is soooo slow compared to the Storm. I glanced at it at Verizon and I am so glad I didn't get that phone.

As far as the browser goes, have you registered the handheld on the network?
