    sure increased signal if you are in place that has no signal but happens to have a free wireless network.

    other than that, no real point imo. you still need the blackberry internet service to do anything.

    you can use wifi to browse internet without data plan. connect it to your home router and download away.

    There is VOIP and UMA. Faster Internet. Plenty of pluses. I have no issues paying for a data plan.

    Is your issue that you have to pay for access to the RIM servers? Because that's basically what you're paying for. It's the way Blackberrys were designed. Sorry that you're disappointed. I couldn't be happier with my BB.

    ya but if you really want to be able to use programs for the blackberry, they almost all use data and not wifi (gmail, google maps, jivetalk, etc).

    i just dont see the hype about wifi. you can still lay in bed browsing using the data service.

    no hype just an alternative to browse/download. When i don't have signal i resort to wifi. Will also be useful with upcoming 4.5 streaming capability.

    I work at an airport with free wifi 24/7 so wifi was a no-brainer for me.

    To me wifi is everything, before I can hardly get any signal at my house and now I'm a happy camper. Also, it saves me ton of minutes.

    WiFi is still faster than edge, at least on my 8320, despite what all the naysayers say. Even though its not blazing speed, its a relief over edge.
