    I don't know why.... but I have a feeling that the 9550 might not have WiFi... The only Odins I've seen with WiFi are 9520s so far.

    I might get crucified here, but hey, that's just what I'm thinking at this point

    If that is the case would you stay with your CDMA carrier, if you were thinking about buying the Odin, or would you switch to a GSM carrier?

    THIS IS JUST MY OPINION AND SHOULDN'T BE TAKEN AS A FACT

    I will be pissed if the 9550 doesn't have wifi. It still would not make me want to switch to a crap network like AT&T though.

    +1 I would just keep my tour if that's the case.

    Is it similar to the pearl flip, where the GSM version has WiFi, and the CDMA version has GPS?

    I like AT&T.... but I would think it would be a huge fail on RIM's part if they don't put wifi in it...

    Yeah. I do really think that whatever version of the phone I get (if one of them doesn't have it when released) should have WiFi.

    I don't usually complain about WiFi, but to use full advantage of this phone I feel like I do need it.

    I just know I'm 100% that all the pics and videos we've seen of Odins with WiFi are 9520's

    I can't explain the backgrounds though...

    You are right, but wrong.

    9520 = GMS phone
    9550 = CDMA phone

    Its confirmed that Verizon will be getting one of these, which should be the 9550, but nothing is for sure yet.

    As of ATT, Nobody knows yet for sure.

    No the backgrounds were Verizon for a reason. WiFi isn't a limitation on Blackberry but one that VZW puts up on BB's.

    Thank you. If what you suspect is true, I really don't see a big pull for me to get the Storm 2 over the Tour... I only say this because the first Storm had such a horrible launch.

    Sal,

    We've seen at least 2 screen shots with 9550's with wifi. And personally, I don't think it will be worth switching a carrier for that one feature.

    Plus CX has said that AT&T wants the phone badly. Meaning they haven't acquired it yet. Yes you cab probably unlock it. Get it to work on AT&T but them releasing branded as an AT&T phone is only speculation. Nothing has been leaked which hints us it will go there. By now information would have been covered already.

    Just double checked... and I've seen 9550's and 9520's with Verizons background on both!

    Here is the weird thing...

    When I got my pre released TOUR, it was just 2 months before it actually came out, and it was really new hardware (at that point), and I don't have any carrier on the phone announced...

    And on the Odins, we have always seen a VERIZON logo when they start...

    Ok! here is the deal..

    I screwed up here and the 9550 does have WiFi.

    I am getting a 9520 really REALLY soon. I'll double check the carrier for that one...



    This means that this thread is completely useless... since both phones have WiFi! LOL SORRY GUYS

    Right now the 9520 is supposeably going to come out for Vodaphone. It has been said that it will launch there in Europe first. Then over in the States. Just like last year Vodaphone had the Storm first.
