I don't know how fast the Apple products are. Like comparing grapes with oranges.

Too many factors at play that are outside of your control.

Default Re: iphone wifi vs BB wifi ?

you still need a data plan to connect to the internet for BB, not unlike with iphone/ipod connecting is so easy..

Just got a Storm 2 unlocked phone...been trying to connect to the internet using my wi-fi at home, it can't obtain an IP address but its connected to the router....do i really need a data plan just to connect to internet...can't i just simply use my wifi like with my iphone?

I hope tht you realize you posed in a months old thread.

As for WiFi, some cariers require that you have BB data plan before you get the WiFi service book which allows the WiFi connection. Check with your carrier. Also try the hotspot browser or OperaMini rather than the BB browser.

In any case, you need a BB data plan for the RIM services such as email, BBM, BB Browser, FaceBook, maps, most IM programs, etc.

As I said, call your carrier and see if they will send the WiFi service book without a BB data plan.

Can't turn off data services if you want WiFi. WiFi is data.

Use Google to find OperaMini.
