Default 8520 internet question

Please Login to Remove!

I have the data plan and I also have Linksys wireless at home. When I'm using my phone at home it says Linksys, so if I'm browsing or on facebook is it pulling from the Linksys. I guess what I'm asking is will it use a hot spot first before it uses up my data from att. I hope I'm making sense.

Thanks

Moved to the 8500 section.

Been asked many times before, so I guess you didn't search.

If it is connected to WiFi, you are most likely using WiFi data and not your ATT data.

I did not search and I will not search when it's easier for me to just ask the question. Thanks for your answer though...

If you won't do some research on your own, and with that attitude, you won't get much help either.

We are all volunteers and try to help as many as possible, but some help on your part is appreciated as well.

I noticed that when I'm picking up Wi-Fi it puts name of the network at the top of the screen after your provider name:

Vodafone - Chris
