    I just got an 8130 and Sprint is my carrier. Does anyone know why there is no wi-fi on this phone and is there a blackberry from sprint that does have wi-fi?

    From RIM's product page.

    81xx: Wi-Fi support so you can connect to virtually any Wi-Fi network (BlackBerry Pearl 8120 only)

    83xx: Wi-Fi support so you can connect to virtually any Wi-Fi network - BlackBerry Curve 8320 only

    MDroemer's carrier is Sprint a CDMA carrier and the choices would be of the xx30 version of these devices.

    huh?! where did you possibly hear that?! If so, I want one!

    I know for a fact that the 8130 does not have WiFi

    Only devices with current WiFi support are the xx20 series devices. All of the next-gen devices and the Nextel iDEN Curve 8350 will have WiFi as well...

    8130 is gps-pearl

    personally i have the 8120 and the wifi isnt that great. not sure why this post from 2008 is revived.. now-a-days the curve 8520 - wifi curve and 9330 - curve 3g (wifi and gps), pearl 9100 (wifi) all have wifi and are great options to go with....

    8130 doesn't have the hardware for Wi-Fi. CDMA BlackBerrys didn't start getting Wi-Fi until the 8530 Curve 2.
