    Is it smart to leave both Mobile Network, Wifi connections on at the same time, or are you just suppose to leave one on, for Blackberry Bold phone?

    It doesnt really matter, but if you leave wifi on all the time it wastes battery.

    On the Rogers network there have been several problems with both active (especially while making voice calls). I spoke with Rogers and they said that there were times were voice clarity was countered or the call was completely cut off as the wifi / radio kept trying to outdo each other

    Leaving them both on doesn't affect any data transmissions correct? I mean as long as my browsers are set to wifi I shouldn't incur any charges to my monthly bill, right?

    Hey everyone I'm new here

    Well it is true that if u leave it on all day it will drain ur battery but by having both on the BB will use the wifi for web and calls b4 using the mobile network... I came up with this theory because I don't have a data plan and my bb will use the wifi b4 tryin my t-mobile connection and while talking over wifi I don't use my minutes.

    I have wifi on all the time and catch a hot spot at work and home. I've tried it both ways too, turning wifi on only when I'm in either of those areas and I have yet to notice any bad side effects. My battery consumption seems consistent in either mode and not noticeably greater in wifi in either case.

    I have read what Speedv1 posted on but I've yet to see that happen but could see that as a possibility. My service has been very good with the new BB as far as that goes.

    Hi there!I'm new here! :-)

    I have a bb bold 9000 and my problem is, I cannot use Wi-fi and mobile connection at the same time. The unit restarts over and over...Can you really not use them both simultaneously? Or is there something wrong with my unit?

    Help,anyone? :-(

    Thanks!
