Seems like there is a fairly obvious question to ask yourself then, do you like using a touchscreen, if the answer isn't a resounding yes then that basically trumps any other factor.

I just seen the video on the Storm II, and so I ask this multi million dollar question.


I have Verizon, and seeing that the new Storm II will have WIFI capabilities, then is there a reason to purchase a data plan? If you are going to say that you can't text, send pictures or video without a data plan, then what is the benefit of having WIFI, when having the data plan places you on the INTERNET.

Firstly, Verizon will not allow you to get a BB with them without a data plan.
They require it.

secondly, you need a data plan to get email.
this is the point of it.

thirdly, the point of wi-fi is to get internet when you're near a wi-fi access point but have poor signal coverage, as (and you should know this) wi-fi is quicker, and will therefore get you surfing the net when you have little - no coverage with the data.
