    I don't think you can use OM to test bandwidth, because it gives you the results of it's server backend, not your BB.
    Yeah, that's what I figured. There's got to be an app somewhere to run legit speed tests though. Or I can just time web page load times and blow away the cache between runs to take that out of the equation.

    ohh geeze, because I have FiOS and its fast, so do my friends...its fast...I connect to mine...its slow....I connect to theirs...its fast...so I'd say something in my house is screwing with my connection, that's probably why I just said screw the WiFi at my house haha, I'm fairly patient and all is good...but nothing pisses me off more than EDGE

    There is an app called speedtest or something like that. It does what you're looking to do I believe. I don't remember the link for it but if I find it I'll post it.


    I set my bold to 2G only, and use WiFi when available. There's a noticable inprovement in battery life.

    wifi is important to me since it saves me on my bill. Here in the philippines, we don't have unlimited blackberry internet service. As a matter of fact, I pay for every single kilobyte I use thus the need for wifi.

    Wifi is faster than 3g so it would be nice to have it in case.

    I've yet to use the wifi on my Bold. So far, only been using 3G and Edge, depending on my location.

    Depends. On Nokias you can download numerous VOIP programs. I'm not sure if you can do the same with blackberries or not. Perhaps someone here will know.
