Can Wi Fi be added later as add-on or Storm incapable?

Don't know much about Wi Fi. Thanks

Not that I know of, Wifi is accessed via radio that wasn't included ont he phone. It's a hardware addon, and something that would need an access slot, so it's unlikely in this version of the hardware

No sir, WiFi is not an option on the Storm. The phone was not built with the hardware capabilities. Neither the 9500 or the 9530 have the ability to be upgraded (unless your rather inventive and good with a sodering iron.)

I think what the OP is asking is whether a separate hardware can be attached to the phone, say like some wi-fi receiver hooked up via the micro USB.

As far I as i can tell, its not possiable without adding a new device, and when you think about mobile device life cycle, its not likely.
