New to Blackbery 8520 so go easy!!
Just trying to get to grips with my new 8520, and there are a few things that I am unsure about etc. that I hope you more knowledgeable people will be able to help me with.
I have set up my Blackberry 8520 to connect to my home wireless network. I have the WiFi logo on the top right of the screen, sometimes it is white but more often than not is is grey. My network name is displayed along the top regardless of whether the wifi symbol is white or grey (although sometimes the network name also disappears).
What does this mean? If it is white, does it mean that when I browse it will use the wifi rather than my data allowance? Also, when I try to browse when the wifi symbol is white, it appears at the top then disappears and goes back to GPRS - I guess this means that it is connecting via GPRS rather than wifi?
Is there a way to set the blackberry so that it preferentially connects to the wifi if it is available?
Sorry if this has been covered before.
