Default 8320 - WiFi vs. Mobile Network

Please Login to Remove!

I was told by T-Mobile that I should use the Mobile Network and not WiFi on all my settings for internet browsing and all else, since the WiFi will only work where there is a signal and not automatically switch to Mobile Network when WiFi not available. I was trying to browse the net while I was out and couldn't since no WiFi was around...shouldn't it automatically switch to mobile network when this happens?

Thanks for your help!!

Best choice is to have Mobile Network, Network Connection set to WiFi Preferred. This will auto switch to what is available.

Also your Browser should be set to Internet Browser and not WiFi browser and it will automatically switch as well.

I use WiFi while at home and it automatically switches just fine when I leave the house. WiFi is much faster than Edge!
