    Default Cellular data vs wifi

    Hi everyone,

    I recently got a data package for my bb, but its a limited package and i seem to be using it at an alarming rate, so i had a couple of questions, here goes:

    1) If I have the wifi switched on, does the phone give preference to WiFi over cellular or not? Specially for stuff like sending/receiving pics on bbm/whatsapp

    2) I have my email setup on my phone, which means my emails get delivered to me phone. My question is does opening emails use up further data or is it already used up when the email is delivered to my phone?

    Thank you.

    1. Your phone will use Wifi instead of cell data when available.

    2. Data is used to deliver the mail to your phone and to send mail from your phone. What you do with it while on your phone does not require any data usage.

    I hope that answers your questions.

    Hi

    Wifi should override the data plan, while both are connected. This sounds like a carrier issue. I would get them to look at it.

    Once the email is delivered to the phone that data is delivered, only more if you click on attachment
