    use you Wifi??? I thought I would use it alot more and I really have no need for it in my area. Just curious who on here uses it and the amount of use you get out of it and does it work well for everyone in places with no signal???

    i have my home wifi connection defined, so anytime I am at home using dataservices(for the most part), it goes out over wifi. Away from home, not much yet.

    I'm the same. I have Wifi set up at home and use it only then. I thought I'd use it much more as well, but tis not the case.

    I've used it in hotels and stuff where I don't get much of a signal. Works pretty well for me, but I tavel a lot for the military. Use it home just cuz I can.

    Same here, I guess. I have it set so when I'm at home or at work it automatically connects. I have a relatively good signal in both places so I don’t know how much it helps.

    I guess I am like the rest here. My reception is not great in all areas of my house, particularly the basement so the WiFi connection there is great to have. I have not used it outside of the house yet.

    While I have a wi-fi connection at home I never really use it with my phone. Its funny because one of the reasons I bought the Storm2 instead of the Tour was the wi-fi.

    Yeah I don't usually use mine. Maybe if the BlackBerry browser just didn't suck lol. I can't tell you how many times I bing something and then the webpage I click on doesn't load.

    I usually use my wifi at home, usually while I'm watching TV or going to bed. Its a good way to check what's up on the forums or in the newspaper or just look up random **** lol.

    I have Wifi at home and work. I also have internet access through my cable service which has set up hotspots in every town they service. This allows me a lot of Wifi access.

    I have less than perfect service where I live here in VT. So I have about 10 saved wifi spots in my phone and use it quite a bit.

    I have the "smartwifi" app and set the wifi to go on anytime I'm in a known area (e.g. home, work, etc etc). When it does turn on, I get data/voice together which has its benefits. Other than that, I used it once at a hotel I stayed in in Ontario.

    No 3G service where I live, so wifi is much faster. There are quite a few local free wifi hotspots.
    I also travel a fair bit, so it comes in handy at the hotel. Since getting the Storm2, my laptop stays at home when I travel.

    I have flaky 3G in the house, so I use WiFi at home. I haven't needed to use it anywhere else, but just having the ability to use it at home has made it worth it.

    I have Wi-Fi at home but never use it for my phone. Since I have to pay $30 per month for Black Berry access to Verizon Im gonna get my moneys worth from them.

    I use the wifi at home or when there's a wifi hotshot available. My browser speed is a little faster on wifi and the downloads are much faster.

    I use Wifi as much as possible, but mainly because I am on ATT and limited to Edge. Even on my Bold, with 3G, I use Wifi all the time.

    I always use wifi at home and when I think there is one available. Love being able to talk a surf at the same time and not to mention that the browser is a lot better on wifi...

    I have mine on all the time at home. Hadn't had the chance to use it elsewhere yet, but wi-fi will come in handy while travelling this summer.

    I use it at home and at work, by looking at my data usage compared to my wife's i can't definitely tell that it's being utilized and things like viigo and ap news apps refresh much faster when it's connected.

    I use it whenever I can. It is much faster than mobile data. I'm using it now when at mall while my wife is shopping
