Default auto WIFI?

Is there a way to have the 8330 automatically detect and switch into a WIFI network, instead of manually searching?
i.e., when you walk into an airport with free WIFI, can the phone auto detect this and switch to that network, or do you always have to search for it? Thanks.

No, the 8330 doesn't have WiFi capabilities.

If you're referring to the 8320 (I'll assume you are) then no, you have to search for it first. If you save the profile then the next time you come into range again it will connect...unless it needs authentication first.

The 8320 will automatically connect at T-Mobile Hot Spot Locations such as Borders, Starbucks, and some airports.

For other Wi-Fi locations, you have to search and add a profile as John Clark stated.
