    Yclif, this is a hardware issue so I don't believe it will be possible. The good news is that the new 8800 will be wifi enabled.

    I know, but I already dished out 3 bills on my pearl . the 8800 does look sweet.

    Re: WiFi?

    Do any of the current blackberries have wifi? Or was that limited only to that one that was a VoIP berry with no cell?

    With the BB data plan I don't see a need for wifi.

    It could be useful for some IF the device autoconnects when a connection is detected and IF it gets fast downloads via all connections, 2 things people that got the Dash complained of right off the bat. I have a similar question: the Tmob gets a 3G network going where I am will the Pearl automatically connect with that?
    BB Pearl, Seidio rubberized case.

    I don't think so. Cingular has 3G deployed and offers the Pearl, but their Pearl doesn't work with it -- a couple of other phones do though (like the Blackjack).

    I wish 3G and WiFi were just software upgrades.

    Cheers

    I for one, can't wait for wifi. With the less than stellar network at my house I welcome wifi there. Its really the only place where my coverage stinks.

    The 3G is sounding nice though! Looks like I'll have 3 new BB's in 2007. Oh well.

    Like I said at BBH, got $50 that info isn't accurate....Actually, I have $5,000 saying that info isn't accurate if they wanna step up to the plate.
