I think you are correct in a way.
Like I said in my previous post you will be able to use the wi-fi browser without having a SIM card. However none of the applications work. They all keep asking for a data connection from the carrier. Now this does not make sense to me.
If you have an internet connection ( a wi-fi network), have a device which talks to it (the 8320), and have applications that you can install on the device (gmail, google maps) then should you need a data connection from the carrier.
Now from what I understand this is very different on other phones like the HTC touch, where a user can install a phone compatible application and then it works with or without a specific carrier network.
Now dont get me wrong.. This is a great phone, and works great, but if you go travelling and jump carriers you need to be aware that your applications will not work just because you have connected to a certain carrier.
I dont know if this has been posted anywhere else, thought it would be better to post it here
