    Wifi/Data question

    Hello, I'm getting the hang of Android, but have one question.I would like to know if Ii have to disable data everytime I want to use wifi, to save on data fees?I went from unlimited (dumbphone), to the 200 mb package, and I am extremely paranoid about going over the data.Thanks !!

    As long as the WiFi remains connected, you do not "spend" data on WiFi. Be careful doing any streaming or downloading off WiFi though..other than that you should be able to do tons of email and browsing without draining data.

    FYI - Call *3282# (DATA) and it will send a text containing texts and data usage (slightly delayed).

    I do listen to Tunein Radio app when on wifi, so safe to assume I should disable data during that time? Sorry if I sound dumb, transition from dumbphone to smartphone is definitely a learning experience.

    When on wifi data isn't used. You should be fine. Call *3282# to check your usage. There should be a setting in the radio app to only play off of wifi.

    As others have said, using wifi will not use the 200mb data plan you have. It is unlimited through wifi.

    Im using 3d watchdog. Even has a widget that shows you your current data usage. You just set the date your billing cycle ends and how often you want it to update.. works great..
