one of the reasons why i chose blackberry was because of the full qwerty keypad that made tying easy and fast. And i assume this phone doesnt have a stylus and it would only have a virtual keyboard. Meaning similar to the iphone typing would be a hastle and annoying.
why do u guys want wifi?
its a 3g phone? speech is comparable to most hotspots. and its always on. dont have to go looking for it.
wifi is a thing of the past
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2008does anybody know if it works with a sim card on gsm and cdma at the same timeThis phone will work on CDMA while in North America but once you get out of North America that's when it will change to GSM automatically. But you need to call your wireless provider to make sure that the provisioning is correct at the back end for GSM Roaming.
Dan, 10 Oct 2008I feel that they have not got that right, because this is the only website I have seen that st... moreIt was corrected on this website that the BB9530 doesn't includes Wifi, this was changed after that Verizon launched the debut.
What's the point of having Wifi anyways when wireless companies offer really cheap unlimited data plans.
I feel that they have not got that right, because this is the only website I have seen that states that the Storm does not have WIFI, many other sights state 802.11 a/b/g
You can not compare BB with the iphone. NO WiFi. Yeah carriers will make some change on selling you a data service but lose out on customers who will go to the iphone. Bad deal, to bad if it had WiFi it could have been a contender.

andrezyk, 08 Oct 2008it has a bigger screen then iPhone!! BB rulz!! Great phone!! yea right!!!!!
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2008almost a good phone. but no wlan? why can't blackberry have this function.Of course they can. The 8320 has it. But they probably make deals with carriers. If you don't have WiFi, then you must use the network to receive your emails. Means you must pay additional money to the carrier ! Quite logical !
I wanted to buy a BlackBerry but because of this I bought a HTC Touch that has WiFi.
Finally every phone manufacturing company realizing that touch screen matters!
almost a good phone. but no wlan? why can't blackberry have this function.
This phone is good i've benn waiting a while now for blackberry to release a touch phone. now thats its here it's great except for one thing. It doesnt have WLAN, a phone this powerful should have WLAN even though it has other powerful internet capabilites.
NO WIFI??????! RIM can forget about beating the iPhone. Its a complete waste.
This way Vodafone is sure that you sign a contract for data to receive your emails ! With Wifi you can always find some spot and download your emails for free. Without Wifi you must rely on the network...and pay !! Very smart.
