You'd have to ask your carrier or RIM for that one buddy.

Over at blackberry.com to find out more info about BB 7270, it did not say how many MB it has. Does anyone know how many MB and what processor speed willit run at? Will it work fine if I can use it for hotspots, WiFi at home and work?

Thanks again!

I believe (based on what I remember from a briefing months ago) that the 7270 is designed for a campus/corporate environment, requires BES 4.0, and is not for hotspots or home use.

I am pretty sure the answer is no. You won't be able to get onto the hotspot in order to VPN to your office. Not happening.

I would be in heaven if RIM struck up a deal to spit out 7270's with Vonage
