Is this possible??? Want to use WiFi onthe BB8310???
tried posting this on another board... receive no responses.... anyone here??
 
I love my 8310 but wished it had WiFi.
Hopefully this wasn't asked already.....

If I would get a wifi adapter for my 8310 (mini usb adapter)... is there any way I would be able to get it to connect to my network/internet... at home... panera... anywhere?? Is there software available that I could download?

Not even sure if this is possible but I dont want to download the 8320 device software b/c I'd lose built-in GPS (i think.)

So am I just wishful thinking ... or can this be possible???

Someone has had to try this already right?

The phone can't act as a USB host, so no, what you want to do won't work.
 
As far as downloading the 8320 device software, even if it would install, which I doubt, you still wouldn't have WiFi. The 8310 doesn't have a WiFi chip.

The only way to get WiFi is to get a WiFi-equipped BB.
