Default Bold 9900 Set up for wifi net and use network as well.

Hi All,

I would like to set up my phone in a way to have the wifi and network on. But I would like the phone to use internet if connected to wifi but not with mobile net. So in case I accidentally leave a wifi area the internet would stop working without the need to turn off data service.

access point at your home, work, or in a hotspot area. Your smartphone uses the Wi-Fi network instead of the mobile network
to visit webpages, send and receive email messages, and so on. When you connect to the Internet with a Wi-Fi network, you
