    WiFi Push Email?

    Advertisement



    If the device has no reception, does WiFi push email?

    Or do you need 3G/EDGE connection for it to push your emails through?

    What about PIN messaging and BB Messenger? Do those work on WiFi?

    If you have a WiFi enabled device and are connected to a WiFi router with a UMA signal then all of your data services should function normally, including email and BBM.

    What device are you using? Your profile says 8800, that version does not support Wifi , the 8820 does.

    UMA will show instead of EDGE in the signal field when you are properly connected to a wifi hotspot.

    Did that work? I have a Bold and have WIFI set up at home. All data functions work on WIFI without cell signal (I tried it just to see).

    you dont really need UMA. As long as you have a BIS or BES data plan, the emails WILL get pushed through the wifi connexion even if you dont have network where you are.
    and those are the words of my blackberry rep (and i found that it does indeed work - tried at a cottage).
