It does not have Wi-Fi. The wireless modem simply means that you should be able to tether it to your computer and use your BB as a modem to surf the net/get email.

Yes, if you have the unlimited BB plan from Cingular you would be able to surf on your BB, however, I think Cingular charges more if you want to tether the BB to a laptop.

You must have a Blackberry data plan to surf... no other plans will work.
