Even though I hate Verizon, I'm glad they're getting a good phone. I'm also glad the 9630 looks more like the 8900 that the 9000. I'm disappointed, though, that it probably won't have Wi-Fi.

Seriously, stop with the "no WiFi" comments. Verizon and Sprint haven't hand WiFi on any of their 3G BlackBerries (and no, the 8350i iDEN BB does not count) and odds are they won't have it on any in the future (at least on their CDMA networks). Though your opinion may differ, they believe their 3G networks are big enough to not require WiFi (thus reducing costs and size) since you're forced to pay for data for the device anyway. Their 3G networks are much bigger than AT&T and T-Mobile, so I found that WiFi was unnecessary when I had the Curve on Sprint and the Storm on Verizon before trying out the Bold on AT&T and now on the Curve 8900 for T-Mobile.

Even if their footprints are bigger why cripple it? What about inside buildings were wifi is prevelant and signal isn't? In my experiences in areas of wifi it runs just a little faster as well and who doesn't want that????

Okay. We all know that you all want WiFi on your BBs but we all know that with Verizon, it just ain't going to happen so get over it. If you want WiFi then go to a carrier like AT&T and may G'd be with you because their service SUCKS!!!! Also, for anyone who ever has used WiFi, you will know that it will suck every bit of life out of your battery in a hurry. Verizon's CDMA 3g network is just fine and I have had no issues. Just bring this bad boy on already. I know that it will be a cold day in hell when I go to the Storm. WAY too many issues.

Well for all your storm haters on here that also think you must have wi-fi, it is in fact wi-fi capable on Verizon Wireless. Too bad you still have to have the data package on it which is one in the same with every carrier that does offer wi-fi on their phones. Btw - Omnia - Wi-fi capable, Saga - wi-fi capable, HTC Touch Pro - Wi-fi capable, bb8330 - wi-fi capable if you know how to make it work, and wait until you see the rest of the smartphones launching this year that will also all be wi-fi capable.
