    Hello everyone

    My service plan ends soon with t-mobile. Anyway one of my friends has a smart phone and hes able to go online and does all that fun stuff. But he has one of those data/internet plans whatever they are called. Anyway I am thinking about switching to Verizon. I want to get a phone that has wifi, but I dont think there is such a phone. I just want to be able to surf the web when I am being lazy on the couch lol. I pay to have internet service at my house, why should I pay t-mobile to let me surf the web when I already have this service at my house?

    Is there a phone out there that lets me use my wifi at home? Without the phone company charging me to use there internet service?

    Which service provider will let me do this if any?

    I heard BB might be able to do this.


    Thank you

    The only devices with WiFi are the xx20 model devices.

    The only carriers with these devices are GSM. TMobile has the 8120 and 8320, which both support WiFi.

    VZW does not have any WiFi device

    No... all WiFi devices are GSM. You cannot unlock a GSM device and use it on CDMA.
