i thnk this fone is amazing. the no wifi thng is the least of my worries because the fone company i use offers a special bb service. plus u can only use wifi where there is a wireless signal. blackberry fones were made for business ppl who are always on the go. chances are if they are at home or wrk they wuold already hav a computer there so the wifi would be useless. wat about when ur on d road and was sent an important business email...or gettin som grocies and want to im som frends while u wait in line. wifi would only be good 4 me if there was a unsecure wireless signal everywhere i was.
xxbbgalxx, 09 Jul 2009if by jailbrake you mean unlocking the handset, that is sheer sacrilige! The handset is design... moreTotally agree with the other users who have replied to you. What are you on about?? The more freedom we have the better.
No wifi means it has lost my business. ALL high end phones have wifi - lovely phone but serious negative point not having this as an option. 3G costs a lot and when you are at home why pay when you can use your wireless router (as opposed to getting your laptop or pc all turned on). Many places offer free if not very low cost hotspots and is far far cheaper and much faster than 3G. Seems absolutely rediculous not to include this for the business user as an option. Big pity. I hope they change this in their future models.

iNoob, 05 Jul 2009Iphone u can jailbráke and then it´s the best in the world! if by jailbrake you mean unlocking the handset, that is sheer sacrilige! The handset is designed, created and produced for the o2 network in the uk and AT&T in the states.
you will damage the handset, the carrier and also u invalidate your warranty with Apple. I.E if the handset breaks wont touch it.
IN SHORT do not unlock your iPhone. They are amazing pieces of kit, just treat them with respect. Dont unlock em.
or buy another phone!
Please can someone tell me how exactly this phone is??? as i do not care for WiFi...
Is it better than Bold?
black berry strom 9530 can't use internet with wi fi or not ? plz ans as soon as possible
Very bad performance. When you turn on blackberry takes 5 minutes until you receive the signal and be able to make a call. When the battery is low, you will lose signal, it will say "OFF" in the place where the bars are the phone is still on but I could not make a call. Very very disappointing. WORST of the WORST phones on the market. NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL. Don't buy any Blackberry phones if you don't want any problems.
Piece of crap. Worse than I expected. Signal reception is very poor everywhere, I live in Chicago in the city and I get only 2 bars. Photos take forever to load and it's very hard to flip, takes time and patience. It freezes constantly. Can not compare to iPhone at all, not even close to it. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. You will regret it.
I can't beleive it doesn't have WiFi (WLAN). What the shame! And why it has better rating over iPhone 3Gs is another question for me.
Chilli, 22 Jun 2009I have used the iPhone too, the worst phone I have ever had. Can't mms and cannot forward sms.... moreit can now send mms and forward sms and have more to offer with os 3.0 update . sorry for you if you did not know. read some news sillyboy
i use a nokia 5800 for my gsm but i'm not satisfied with it due to the fact that the contact user face doesn't match up to my blackberry 8830 which is my cdma. i can serch my contact info much more easily on the blacberry even having the company detail option which my former sony ericsson p1i gave me
but i've been planning on getting the blackberry storm until i came across these review & reports from users concerning the interface. dont get me wrong, i'm not a stranger to touch screen (i own a 16 gig i-touch & a nokia 5800) but the users i know are not happy at all with the storm
when is the sotrm 2 coming out & i hope it'll have the cdma + gsm feature together wherein calls can come in simultenously unlike my 8830 where i av 2 switch users even with a sim slot? pls i'll prefer to carry around just 1 phone & not 2
it should have a better touch screen interface et al
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2009iphone has lots of messenger applications for free.. better than blackberrys.I have used the iPhone too, the worst phone I have ever had. Can't mms and cannot forward sms. Useless.
The wifi in my opinion is not that crucial at all. I have also used the iPhone with wifi and it is a waste of time. 3G is more important on the Storm for when you are not at the office or at home to connect and download email.
I read 30 email messages a day on my phone, but only respond or generate a few... the keyboard's maximum typing speed is of secondary concern for you if you share my same use model (and the web browsing on the Storm, like the iPhone, is absolutely joyous!)
There's no WIFI because the network operators want you to use their bandwidth and increase their profit margins....when are companies going to act socially responsibly?
