I think the only option would be having _both_, i can't live without
WiFI as i would use my phone alot at work and there's a building wide
wireless network setup, though having 3G would be nice when not at a
place with a wifi service, i'd not want to buy a phone without wifi
The nice thing about wifi is that it's free, wherever you can find a
open network you have access to everything at no cost, but with 3G you
have to pay.
For my part costs like 20 nok (norwegian kroners) per MB downloaded,
which is insane.
