    Hey cotz welcome to pinstack. However, Wi-Fi as djmack said, is not supported by the 8100. I think they said it would weigh too much if they added the chip to it.

    cotz, Welcome to PinStack.

    Just curious, where did you get the Idea that the Pearl had WiFi capabilities? Is someone advertising that?

    Anyway, , Welcome to PinStack.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your BB.

    does any cell phone in the US have wifi? I was under the impression that the major carriers weren't going to release any phones with wifi capabilities because they're worried about internet-based phone services like Skype taking way their precious cell phone minutes.

    Am I missing something?

    As I understand WIFI, it is useful to establish a net connection on a notebook pc or PDA at places such as coffee shops, airports, etc.

    In contrast, assuming one has a T-Mo connection, one can access the Net using T-Mo's data plan and the Pearl's browser.

    So if one has Net access through the T-Mo connection, why would one also want WIFI? If I'm at Starbucks or the airport I'd be using T-Mo and not a WIFI connection.

    Of course, I suspect that if one was NOT in the U. S. and did not have an unlimited data plan, then WIFI would be beneficial?

    Is the U.S. market why RIM did not include WIFI on the Pearl? Seems so to me.

    Toddboy71,

    Check out the BlackBerry 7270 Page. Agreed, It is not a WiFI capable BlackBerry Cell phone, but It is a Blackberry.
