Default WiFi Question

Please Login to Remove!

Im in the USA for short while and using the prepaid t-mobile card with my curve 8320. if i connect to the internet using the wifi option on the phone do i get charged for it? i remember people telling me that they did not get the internet on the phone because they just connect to the wifi without an extra charge.

If you use Wi-Fi you won't incur any charges.

Question

If you can't use the WiFi for VOIP and you have an unlimited data plan, what is the purpose of WiFi? Just curious as to what it is used for.....

But are you not already browsing for "free" if you have a unlimited Data Plan? Is there a way to make free calls without using VOIP??

Ok, so if you have both WiFi and Edge and you have the unlimited data plan and AT&T does not allow you to use VOIP, what exactly does WiFi do for you???

I've wondered the same thing. Faster browser when you can get a wifi signal.

If you're using it overseas you can get your email over wifi only and get out of the big data roaming charges.
