    Can someone help me choose a cdma blackberry or other cdma phone that has wifi? Like the samsung omnia 2? Preferably one that can run opera mini.

    I have an awesome plan with Alltel (it's now Verizon but the plan still works) but it's only talk and text. If I want to get mobile web I am forced to switch to a Verizon plan. Screw that. I've used *228 to move to a new phone once before on this plan.

    As an aside, I was using the phone finder at phonescoop.com, and it lists the iphone as using WCDMA. WTH?

    the storm 2 has all of the above. I like it personally, but its up to you as the user. You can then unloack it and take it to another service provider if you choose.

    thanks. Even the used ones are a bit too pricey for me right now.

    I went through the phone finder on phonescoop.com and found every cdma phone with wifi. Also I am looking on ebay for the minimum these phones are selling for (based on the "completed listings" option). I will post my finds here, in case this could help anyone else. These prices exclude the shipping, which sometimes varies for different area codes.

    Also another inexpensive mobile wifi option is the motorola q9c with an mini sd wifi card from spectec, as mentioned on sprintusers.com

    Of course these won't all work on verizon, so buyer beware. Do your research.

    Look through Walmart.com. BlackBerry 8530 Sprint can be free, VZW has rebate and you can actually make money on that one.
