    I work in a hospital where i get no service. Normally by the end of a 12hr shift my bold is either dead or crying in pain from low battery. I turned off the mobile network connection and just using BBM on wifi and playing on the phone i went through 12 and a half hrs at work only using 15% of my battery! I will be turning off my network connection often now. Screw txting! BBM is where it is at!!! I wont ever buy another BBerry without wifi.

    Good post! There are some (especially verizonites) that claim they don't need wifi. This post is a fine example why wifi is a necessity.

    Very true in everything you say but if your network provider uses UMA and you bought an 8900 you would have all that plus calls text & mms whilst still only using wifi.

    I love my bold but keep an 8900 in the workbag just in case the local transmitter go's down which it does frequantly.

    I also had a 8320 before I got my Bold last year and UMA is pricless. If AT&T offered UMA especially on the Bold it would bring it to another level.
