    I posted ealier and got some very useful info about wifi. I think it was fatboy97 that gave me the help. While my wifi is connected I really don't see a difference in speed with EDGE. Fatboy had me chance my browser setting to hotspot but that didn't work. Should I do a battery pull? Just want my wifi as fast as everyone says it is.

    Do you have a White WiFi symbol? Also, how long has your 8900 been up? If it's been up for a few days without a reboot I'd do a battery pull. I'll check back tomorrow if I can, but I have some plans.

    If you go to bb app world there is a free speed test you can download might be worth a try, then you should be able to see the difference

    I think the problem is the data downloads faster, the but Browser sucks and renders pages only marginally faster. RIM really needs to make a non-sucky browser.

    Wifi also depends on how far you are near the base of the router..if you stealing the guy or lady next door wifi i dont think it would be as fast as it would if it was in your room or office
