    I just upgraded from the Tour to the Bold. The phone works great! Some nice new features. However, the wifi is not working or I just don't know what I'm doing . It picks up my linksys wireless adapter and the top of the Bold says "Home" in the center and the WIFI is lit up on the right. However, there are only 2 green bars when I check for signal strength and only once in a while does the internet and/or e-mail work correctly. Not sure why there are only 2 green bars, since my laptops work great and it is a very strong signal coming out of my wireless adapter.

    Is the phone defective or am I doing something wrong? Any helpful hints would be great! Thanks.

    Well, it sounds like the wifi is working if youre getting the "Home" name of your router. It could just be a signal issue.

    There's not too much of a difference in speed of the internet on your BB with wifi - pretty sure its because of the processor on the 9650. You can notice a difference between wifi and 3g when you're downloading though. For example, when I download a video in 3G, I can get 30-50kb/sec. When I connect to wifi and download I can sometimes get anywhere between 150-300 kb/sec.

    I did the same thing you did - went from the Tour to the Bold. I did it for the wifi at first, but this week I realized I did it for another reason....
    On your profile you listed Verizon as your carrier. OS 6 came out 2 days ago and its freakin awesome! Plus, it seems like the browser is faster. Check it out if you havent already.

    Good luck

    You should check the wifi diagnostics on your bb and see what kind of signal you are getting. You may be getting a weak signal
