    Ok I'm completely new to using wifi on the BB. As I understand it, wifi takes me to UMA which is for phone calls. If I don't have a UMA plan ($10/mo), any minutes I use over the wifi just get decremented from my monthly minutes plan (unless after hours).

    How about for data transfer, internet etc over wi-fi? Granted I have unlimited data and internet plan through Tmobile, but does transferring data over wifi cause for any additional charges of any sort? I know dumb question but just wanted to see.

    And the last dumb question I assume wifi allows for much much faster data streams correct (compared to carrier service)?

    Thanks much.
