If you have a BB data plan, then set the browser for Internet Browser. It will use the wifi BIS connection first. If you set it for Hotspot browser then when you're not in a wifi area, you won't get anything using the browser.
ooh, i like how the BB Bold is so smart in prioritizing the data connection medium. so what if i was already on live messenger chatting away, i just got home, and the bold connected via wifi with the wifi logo lit, does that mean all data is being routed through wifi or the mobile network? i tried turning off the mobile network radio and the live messenger connection dropped even though i was connected over wifi. :( i'm guessing if i want to use the wifi connection, i need to re-login when i'm connected to wifi?
