Please help me

I have posted several messages in this forum regarding wifi connectivity and GPRS, but yet to find a satisfactory answer. I have an 8820 with wifi option and a limited data plan. I'd like to use the data plan only as a last measure and would like to receive my emails via wifi. At the moment, there's only 1 way of getting the wifi to work without affecting the data plan - switching off the mobile network. When the mobile network (and the wifi) is on, the phone/ router fails to obtain/assign an IP for the phone - the wifi appears grey.

Is there any way I can instruct the phone to connect via the data plan only when the wifi is not available? In other words, set wifi as first way of connecting, then GPRS.

Please let me know
