    I have an ATT Bold. With wifi on and cell on, everything seems to flow through the wifi end. I'm using a data counter and have been watching it for several days. When I shut the cell phone part ("radio") off, most programs fails even though the wifi is on I see there is no data connection. I tried putting a non-Blackberry SIM in the unit with the radio on and everything still failed.

    What am I doing wrong? I will be taking a long Emirates flight with wifi on the plane and would like to use the same on my BB, but figure it won't work with radio off. At the same time, I am seeing other people who are using their BBs over wifi only. I understand how this could be different with a TMobile UMA compatible device, but don't understand how it would be different with anyone else

    Not all applications will work over wifi as you need a dataplan to run certain applications. But, data doesnt work in air, so you are stuck with what only works on a plane. Internet, and some apps. have fun.
