    This is my first droid/smart phone ever, I had a razor for a few years. I'm on the boost unlimited pre paid program and I was wondering if there was any way to go online without being on wifi, like when i'm at work or out and about. I know i can connect to a wifi spot but most spots are password protected, so is there any other way to get online without using the wifi?

    You can still browse the internet on just the network its just allot slower. like a step down from dial-up.
    You cant stream most music("xiialite" streams at 24kbps but it cuts off sometimes after a couple of minutes and has to buffer)
    No video without wifi. (I have youtube vids, movies, and music saved on my sd card.)

    Just gotta find little ways around having a slower network when your on the go. the apps in the ANDROID market are very helpul. but to answer your original question yes but its utilized best when just using it to read articles and posting in forums and what not.
    Also phone comes with two browsers ANDROID webkit browser best used with wifi. and the Opera Mini 5 browser this should be your preferred browser when not on wifi connection.

    settings> applications> browsers> either choose to have it as your default or not.

    (when you dont you can still access opera from the red "O" graphic in pull up screen and ANDROID browser by clicking the "world" graphic.)

    @Nhty whens the last time your phone was actually turned off and on because its been awhile for me. Anyways I read your comment and tried to browse on iDEN only using Opera and it showed the same message.

    Hi all. I just got my first smart phone too. The i1. When I go to "market" and try to search apps it says "for best performance activate wifi to download and use apps". It then spits me back to my home page and wont even let me scroll apps. I dont have a wifi account and the local ones all require passwords. What do I do? Thanks for any help.

    Sorry guys. I guess my battery was getting low and that was the cause. Thx anyway!
