i also have an at&t 8820 that does not have an option to set the connection preferences. my options/about indicates v126.96.36.199 (Platform 188.8.131.52). i am frustrated that my at&t 8820 does not have an option to let me set my preferred connection preferences. is it possible at&t is going to have to do an update before customers can enjoy this feature? i paid $500 and am feeling kinda let down
separately, i finally found a speed test site (toast.net) that would let me generate results on my blackberry 8820 (www.toast.net)
. i have never gotten a speed test using (just) wi-fi on my at&t blackberry 8820 that significantly exceeeds what i get using (just) EDGE. 70+ to 80 kbps max downstream -- using either -- even though my home wi-fi network tests at over 5.1Mbps downstream on my company wi-fi laptop
is it possible at&t has dumbed down its 8820's wi-fi capability to keep EDGE looking competitive?
