178163I have not switched on my PC to check emails or facebook since I got this phone!!! The WIFI hooks up effortlessly to my wifi router and ever since I've just been browsing on my BB!. The operating system is amazing and is easy to navigate with the optical trackpad and the keyboard.
Texting and emailing and the general social networking posting is made easier with responsive keys.
Adding of APPS couldn't be easier. Just browse on the Blackberry browser and find some sites with over the air (OTA) links and the Blackberry installs the apps for you.
Another amazing thing is the UK have so many free WIFI points now that you can find a WIFI spot in a coffee shop, get your coffee and keep updated on news or just general browsing.
Overall I recommend this phone. My phones will now forever be BlackberryS!!! :)
