Turning on your smartphone’s Wi-Fi connection is a great way to make the most of your wireless data experience - it’s faster and it puts less strain on your battery. With Wi-Fi on, you can discover and connect to wireless networks and talk while you surf the Internet. If you’re in a building and your 3G signal starts to lag, just jump on a Wi-Fi network to get up to speed fast.
Remember, battery savings depend on network configuration, usage patterns and many other factors.
Wi-Fi is turned off when you initially use your phone.
Why should I turn on Wi-Fi?
How do I make my device find the same Wi-Fi hotspots every time?
When you use a Wi-Fi network, your device will remember it. Then, each time you return to the area covered by that network, your phone will connect automatically if Wi-Fi is enabled.
When I leave my Wi-Fi hotspot area, what happens?
Your voice calls will not be not impacted. Your data session will pause and restart automatically on either 3G or 4G.
