This blackberry phone doesn't have Wifi is because in US and UK, when the customers need Wifi, they SMS to the telecom centre, it help them to activated it. I heard from my friends. Does your friend stay at US or UK, you can ask them.
The Storm II will have WiFi, i do believe it comes out this year?
do they have any mobile phone well even blackberry that works simultaneously between cdma and gsm ?
i thought the storm woudl be that phone
its a good phone but i would prefer if it came with wifi. i heard from other blackberry users that the bold is better in many aspects but not in the camara sense considering it comes with a 2.0 mp rather than the storm in which it comes with a 3.2 mp. hopefully the blackberry company can make a phone that has the best of both worlds.
blackberry addict, 08 Jun 2009Nfca i agree with you they only reason these people are fussing about the wifi is because they... moreiphone has lots of messenger applications for free..
better than blackberrys.
Dubz, 27 Apr 2009This phone isn't a complete loss without the Wi-Fi, yeah that is kind of a big thing to leave ... moreMicro SD WIFI cards are available but the slot have to be out side. With Black berry the slot is on the inside.

Anonymous, 12 Mar 2009If you cannot afford mobile internet, you should not have a blackberryNfca i agree with you they only reason these people are fussing about the wifi is because they cant afford the blackberry service from their mobile network and if they cant they shouldnt own a blackberry.wifi is not something you will have at your disposal as compared to a blackberry service. wifi is a plus yes but come one people its not all that. i have it on my current blackberry and dont even use it :-) (oh by the way i'm considering upgrading to a storm but i am yet to decided whether to buy the storm or an iphone) all i have to say thought the the bb messenger got me hook-something the iphone doesnt and possibly will never have. what will i do????

i like this phone and iphone, but i ended up with iphone3G. buti will buy a new phone next year, and i wanted it to be the next blackberry storm. i was happy and excited to know there will be a new storm, and it will have a wifi and improved touchscreen. i just hope the new storm dont have or can turn off the autorotate in the home screen. that was the only thing i dont like about this phone, it has almost complete features i needed, but the autorotation in the homescreen really made me choose the iphone. i just think it will cause user a delay or its annoying when its not lock, the home screen keeps autorotating accidentally and will cause delay specially when it lags. i hope rim will do something to it, as it is not needed. i just thought users really uses screen auto rotation only in keyboard texting, web browsing, music player, photo viewing, video playing, applications and games. home screen does not need to be rotating. iphone is perfect in it, as its screen only rotates wer it needs to be rotated. i just thought the storm over used the screen auto rotation.
which is the newer storm, this 9530 or the 9500(or whatever it is)??????????

If you are having problems with the screen, you can search for tips on Youtube.
The touchscreen starts to have lots of problem after a week. I am changing it to bb bold instead. This phone is the worst blackberry smart phone. I won't recommend anyone to purchase this phone.
This phone is the worst blackberry smart phone. The alarm clock only rings when it feels like ringing. The answer button and the touch screen answer button doesn't function normally. I had many missed call as the button doesn't seem like working. The volume button doesn't function properly. Instead of adjust the volume it changes to the next or previous track. I won't recommend anyone to purchase this phone.
