    When you have both active, WiFi of course has priority. What I want to know is does/can the 3G connection waste any battery if it's also on.

    So far I've been turning off data service when using WiFi. Is that necessary?

    Thanks!

    Turning off data is not necessary when on WiFi. As far as I am aware, it may save a smidgen of power but really doesn't matter at all. When on WiFi (which I am most of the time) mobile data is not used at all. Perhaps a little for authentication on BBM but that is routed through BlackBerry servers so has an excellent compression rate.

    Thanks for the reply! I'm on a fairly limited data plan and have to keep track of what I do on 3G. It's nice to know I don't have to worry so much

    Just for phone calls and sms messages. Everything else will work on Wi-Fi even if you have no cell service, or even a cell phone plan for that matter. With old school BlackBerry's, you would need a bis account, BlackBerry 10 is much like Android in this respect and works with nothing more than a Wi-Fi signal. Yes, even BBM.
