| | T-mobile Curve & Wi-Fi, AMAZING & $ Saver, & No need for GPS with Google Maps Locator

Ok, I want to share all of my fervent research on all these Wi-Fi and GPS subjects, with the Curve. Mine is T-mobile, the best choice.
I am able to use Blazing Wi Fi from any wireless network to use all the apps that normally use network connections, EDGE, 3G, whatever, to do everything. I pre-save my passwords to all the secured networks I frequent and home, and it automatically makes calls over that internet connection when it has the opportunity, and they are crystal clear. I also take the opportunity to refresh my inbox [automatically] for free and I dont have any data or email add-ons to my plan whatsoever. Not to mention there are unsecured wireless networks everywhere, it will automatically do all this. Hotspot at home is just a catcht name, it counts for all calls made over internet anywhere, all unlimited if you do want the $20 a month add-on for this (that might allow you to have much less minutes on your plan to make up the cost, or have a "land-line" effectively Between that and keeping text messages to a minimum by using BB messenger whenever possible (significant other) I keep my bill add on free of any kind. The Wi Fi calling allows me to have better reception when normal cell tower coverage is slim, or those places in buildings with spotty coverage, basically full bars!
I can also make a call out in the boonies of the USA if there is an internet connection, like my cabin which does get satellite broadband internet (there is no dsl or cable in really remote or undeveloped areas...) The phone switches automatically to the superior method, wi-fi to tower, or vice versa.
Hope that helps. Sorry if you are a jealous Cingular customer who doesnt get the wi-fi on their Curve and probably pays $20 or more for data and email.... With google maps over the Curve, I can get my location by cell towers without even needing GPS (ATT Curve does have that internal), whenever there is wi-fi! Did I mention T-mobile also offers insurance and warranty with the Curve and ATT seems to not be willing to do this? No brainer.
