Using Wi-Fi on this phone…

by zippy753    Apr 1, 2008, 3:07 AM

Can anyone tell me if I can use wi-fi on this thing without constantly defaulting to GPRS when out of range? I mean, I want to be able to use what feature I want, when I want. I don’t want to pay for a data plan but I want to check my email at hotspots around the city. On my S710, I needed to app unlock the phone before I could install a third party application to block GPRS service. The GPRS would kick in when the wi-fi was out of range. Is it possible to block GPRS and only use GPRS on a Pearl?
