    I have gone through many threads but could not get a satisfactory answer. I am new to BB and its by second week (8520). I use Wifi for most of my applications, like the browser, viigo, twitter. However my BB Apps, Google Map, Iskoot & few other apps do not run with wifi. I have a plan active with Vodafone for mails and messenger.

    My Questions

    1. Is there a way to connect the above as well with Wifi?
    2. How do I know when is my Wifi working and not GPRS.
    3. Is there a setting on BB 8520 where I can put Wifi as my preferred connection over GPRS. I have a limited download plan and it hurts to see that @ home it connects with GPRS when I can use wifi.

    Any kind of info/reply on these issues or similar/related concerns are appreciated.

    Hi Situ,

    1).I don't believe so.

    2) WiFi logo appears white (not grey) top right of screen. It will say GPRS if, er, GPRS is active.

    3) Network settings > manage mobile connections > wireless preferred.

    That shoiuld do it.
