Question WiFi adaptor?

Please Login to Remove!

The data plan for the blackberry is very expensive with my provider ( Bell ). So I'm wondering if there is a wifi adaptor that I can hook up to the blackberry.

Thanks.

Would be a good idea if someone would invent one.

Thanks.

All somebody would have to do is a write a Blackberry driver for any of the existing USB-based WiFi adapters.

I have to agree that this WiFi app would be a winner. I'd much rather be able to update from anywhere in the house rather than plug in the USB cable. It's surprising that it hasn't yet been done.

Why cant you update using normal wireless connectivity?
