It is not WiFi. No BlackBerrys are WiFi, with the exception of the WiFi only 7270. They use your carriers network to get Internet access.

You MUST have a BlackBerry Data Plan from your carrier before you can do anything with the BB beyond voice and SMS. No clue why you sent your phone to Vodafone.

Caveat Emptor.

When you access the internet and email, it's being done wirelessly, so it has wireless data access. If they meant it had WIFI, they would have listed that it was 802.11a/b/g compatible.
