    So I just learned today that you need to set the browser to hot spot for it to use wifi when browsing....what other programs do you have to do this or can you?
    BBM?
    EMAIL?

    Thanks!

    Browser - twitter applications


    Those are the main two I have noticed. Some applications while in their set ups you will see data connection - auto - wifi - etc, and its always good to set them to wifi when enabled if there is an option so it will auto switch to it.

    Anything that requires data, Wi-fi takes priority over the mobile network data.

    You only need to set the Hotspot browser when you're in a Hotspot browser area. You'll have to log on to use it, ie. a stadium, hotel, airplane etc. If you're at home, or in a normal unsecure WiFi area, the regular browser should connect. You'll see WiFi instead of the 3G in the banner. All the apps that offer WiFi connection will switch to BIS when WiFi isn't present.

    Where is the Hot Spot option on the 9650? I have it on Sprint and I don't see it.

    Its an option within the browser.

    You will only see it if that option is available where you are I believe.

    I had Wifi when I used my Bold, but never needed it. But now my situation has changed and not having it is a pain in the arse.

    I always wondered, if you have both Wifi and 3G turned on, does Wifi take priority over 3G for data?

    T-Mo has a WiFi preferred option, I don't know about VZW. I know on my at&t 9700 there isn't one. It just automatically uses WiFi if available.

    I do believe so. Trying to find info to back that up, but i have noticed when on Wi-fi things send and receive faster, So I do believe that wi-fi takes over

    I have mine set as INTERNET BROWSER and I get connected to WIFI automatically. I do not have to change to HOT SPOT.

    If you go to the WIFI Profile and edit your saved profile, you can set it to connect automatically or manually.

    I too just read that WIFI is priority if its connected.

    It's not always faster than 3G, and when 4G is out, may not ever be faster. Just depends on your data/WiFi connection which is better. Should if WiFi is enabled always connect though, but some OS have been more tempermental than others.
