WiFi Access?

Is it possible to access WiFi with a Blackberry Storm?

Re: WiFi Access?

No. The Storm does not have a WiFi radio.

Re: WiFi Access?

And of course, that does not help the current user trying to get his Storm's WiFi working.

Re: WiFi Access?

I hear thru the grapevine that analog signal will be available soon since your TV wont need it in the near future .......... Maybe some rabbit ears taped the top of the storm might work for WiFi?

 

 

I wanted to find a photo of rabbit ears connected to a storm but could not and too lazy to make one   Smiley Very Happy
