Default Help with wifi connection (mobile networks and wifi)?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I am confused with the Mobile networks and the Wifi in the network connections on my curve.
If I uncheck "mobile networks" does that mean all my web browsing is done through wifi and if there aren't any wifi I wouldn't be connected to tmobile's internet plan or the bb plan?

Btw, if "mobile networks" is unchecked will I be able to make phone calls with my curve?

Thanks

If you uncheck mobile networks then, yes, everything is over wifi.

If you uncheck mobile networks and you have UMA on the device you'll be able to make phone calls.

Sorry with this annoying questions, but i'm just a curious person. I don't want to have to deal with any problems in the long run.

If i do not have bb plan and wifi, is there any possibility of browsing the internet?

Also under wifi, when i am connected to wifi and start browsing, every website that i go to would not be billed, correct?

Thanks again folks.

That is correct. There is no charge for wifi. However, with no data plan you will not get push email and some applications that require internet to function won't work and you will only get data when you are in a wifi area that you can connect to.
