Default Quick wi-fi question

Please Login to Remove!

Do you need to set up your incoming/outgoing server addresses to get your email to go throught wi-fi using the bold? (I use GMAIL for email). I had to do it on my wifes iPhone.

The network name comes up next to my carrier name, so i know the wi-fi is working, but how do i know if the device is using wi-fi for email and browsing? Device isn't any faster

You still need to setup your email and password at the BIS account, not on WiFi.
In other words, no, you don't set your POP account servers on the WiFi, that is already done via the BIS account.

The device will use WiFi when it is present, and not when it is not.
