    Stupid Question - WiFi


    There is no such thing as a stupid question but this is pretty stupid. What is Wi-Fi?

    I have a BB 8800 with a data plan, so I can connect to the BB internet and use it. What is the difference between that and Wi-Fi?

    I don't understand how people can just use Wi-Fi and its free data for them.

    You know how you can connect to another person's internet from a laptop without being at your house? That's an example of Wi-Fi. When you're on your phone's browser, you have to have a connection with the internet from your phone, so there's a chance that you may not be able to connect when in a bad area. If you're out and can connect to someone elses internet it'll give you a better connection to the internet and you can be out of service yourself.

    I hope that helped you...and was right. Worse case scenario, just Google it. You may understand it better reading it yourself than hearing it from someone else. :]

    ~via BB (
    Wi-Fi allows wireless internet access without using your phone network. If you have broadband internet access at home, ur bb can access internet through it free of charge.

    Hi ( BlueJaysFan2007 ) I'm sorry to tell you that the 8800 doesn't have WIFI. It has browser and you will need DATA plan to use the Internet. Sorry.
