    i dont like how the droid looks either...looks boxy...like an old design cell phone...android is cool and all but its pointless for me to get any android phone unless it has push email. getting an email 15 minutes late could be lost money! i want to know what the verizon htc android is going to do.

    Wifi

    You also need to make sure that instead of internet browser it is set to hotspot browser. I have never had any issues with it working at all. Mine goes to with the wifi when im connected and grey when it is not. BBM, internet and emails will work through wifi. Text messages will not being the go through the verizon wireless network not the internet.

    I'm on BIS, and using WiFi (VZW network turned off), I can surf the web and send email, but texting (I do not use BBM) is a no-go--shows "mobile equipment status failed" error. But, not really understanding all the network stuff, this seems to make sense as the text messages would go thru the VZW network, not my (in this instance) home wireless network...I think.

    I've re-sent service books from the BIS webpage.

    Liking the Storm2. Dumped Storm1 July 13th when the Tour came out, but went back to the big touch screen on Wednesday-past.

    Verizon and WiFi

    Thats just Verizon! They have a habit of charging for everything. Just 1 way for them to get everyone to the higher data plan. This is why I am no longer with them.

    That is because text messages are not sent through data they are sent through the vzw mobile network.

    I have not had any issues either, emails went back and forth, and BBM worked fine, and disconnected the mobile network to be sure. Feel bad for the people having problems. Not to mention I didn't have to "configure" anything. It just works.
