The 8820, 8320 and 8120 are the only wifi enabled Blackberries.

what services beside UMA require the special wifi router from TMO? I'm heading down to dallas next week and would love to get an 8320 from TMO, unlock it, and use it on Rogers. I just wondering though if all BIS services will work, or if I have to put my own BES in order to use WiFi with Rogers?

thanks for the info

Update *found thread about wifi without bb data, but mine will be with bb data... wondering what services will go through wifi rather than through Edge (ex. jivetalk, google maps, opera browser, etc)

Update *looks like some features work and some dont, but it will be a huge cost savings on the data plans to use wifi as an alternative while i'm at home.
