Still don't understand wifi
 
I've done searches and sifted through dozens and dozens of responses and I still can't get the answers.

1) - if i have unlimited data, how will WiFi benefit?

2) - how do i use it meaning how do I turn on the switch when I want it and turn it off when I don't

3) - why will some software not ork over wifi?

2) Under Manage Connections ... you can set a preferred method; on mine WiFi is preferred since it'll most likely be faster than GPRS ...

3) Such as ... ?

That's what I get for running the beta; never noticed it not working.
