    Ok - so here's the question.

    Got a new storm 2 and set up, while lengthy from my storm 1, has gone without a hitch. I am able to "connect" to WiFi at home. No issues.

    Now I sit and stare at the screen......... and say, Now What? How does one use WiFi? I don't want to keep the network on as it uses battery. When I do connect and want to surf, does the browser seek the WiFi connection first?

    It sort of feels like a bought a new toy and don't know where/how to play with it!

    Any thoughts or direction would be helpful.

    i use the wifi when I'm in hotesl and have bad signal, or when I'm in the airport and have no connection. I use t home because its a little faster when I'm on this site and some others.

    If you see the white wifi icon in the corner of the browser, you're on wifi. If you see the 3G# in the corner your on the network.

    If the wifi icon is grayed out then you are not connected to wifi.

    Battery drain is not as bad as you might think. I use for web browsing, etc. I leave wifi turned on all the time.

    Got a question, how long is the norm for the wifi to pick a signal up? Reason I ask is this is irritating me, my friends droid picks it up within 30secs where as my 9550 takes up to a min and that's the same signal....
