I don't but I am researching on if it's worthed it here because I might need to get a new cell phone. And I am think if I really need to pay attention to the Wi Fi function. So do you Wi Fi? If so, what kind of devices you use to Wi Fi? And how much do you pay for that?

Sony Ericsson w960i and P1i priced around $400++ in amazon.com. In case you are out of the Wi-Fi range you still can use internet by using its 3G and EDGE wireless technology. These two great phone i am looking forward to buy one of them

Yep they call it 3G and EDGE technology which streamline internet through your mobile phone signals. Wi-Fi is purely and internet connect that go through wireless you can have that usually in Starbucks, Coffebean outlet where Wi-Fi connection is free. Where as 3G or EDGE you can use internet anywhere as long as you have mobile signals

Although my computers and hand held devices have this capability, I do not use it. There are security issues and it just seems like too much trouble and it is very costly where we live as well. As much as I like to be connected, it is not that much of a necessity.

Yes I know, I am using a very old fashioned cell phone but it seems to me that it's falling apart and hangs up on people suddenly. Therefore I am changing to those hi-tech phone. The only thing I think about wi-fi is that I want to be able to mylot everywhere!

Hah! That is just the problem! I don't want to be able to myLot everywhere, lol. It is bad enough at home. But seriously, it is a wonderful thing to be able to hook up free when in range of the Starbucks, as they are almost everywhere. Yes, the new phones are awesome and you will love "graduating" up from an older one. If you are going to spend a lot of money and get a really nice phone, then it will come with WiFi I think. Those Bluetooth wireless thingees are getting to be quite the fashion statement, too, aren't they?!

The phones are not really expensive here because there is a lot of competition and therefore the prices are lower down. I am still thinking if I should get a new phone here or later after the "move", since I probably need a cell phone for my family to reach me. Still struggling!

well, here in our country,we just subscribe with our network company and buy a wifi device and set it up and there are places here in manila where wifi is free, in malls and at times we just park around and look for a free wifi. most people wih cellphones are not into wifi here .

I use wireless router so that our computers can access internet everywhere at home. One day when I change a new mobile phone, be sure it will be a cellphone with Wi-Fi. I like this feature so much. I love China

i use my pda in accessing the wifi of our office. which means, i don't pay anything for it. there are also a lot of establishments offering free wifi services especially inside the malls. in fact, there's one mall here that there's a free wifi connection mall-wide. take note, mall-wide. although i haven't tried accessing it because there's really no time for me to access wifi when i'm malling.
