    I am getting ready to drop my service with sprint. I am wondering if the wi-fi part of the radio will continue to work after the account is terminated? Thanks

    You should be able to access your Home wireless or other wireless networks as well. But you won't be able to use the phone for wireless tethering. Or wired tether either.

    That's what I needed to know. I'll basically be using it as a pda. Thanks!

    Some of us have been doing this a while now; it's actually fairly useful this way.

    Thanks. And were you formerly a sprint customer?

    If you're referring to me, I still am (and after nearly 13 years now).
