    Wifi and Application Questions

    I am new, as of yesterday, to the Atrix family. I love it so far but I have two questions Google just can't seem to answer.The first: When my wifi is working, and connected on my phone, do data charges still apply? Should the "E" for the EDGE still be there while wifi is on? The second: How do I prevent my social networking apps from just opening on their own?It's appreciate the help. I just want to get the best out of my phone.

    The first: When my wifi is working, and connected on my phone, do data charges still apply?
    From my understanding, when wi-fi is on, data to the phone stops sending/receiving from your cellphone data plan. It receives it from the wi-fi connection first.
    I cant confirm this on my end, as I don't have a data plan attached to my atrix. I do have wi-fi. Im sure someone else on the forums can confirm the functionality of data charges "not applying"

    Should the "E" for the EDGE still be there while wifi is on?
    This I can confirm. Yes, the E shows up on my notification bar while Wi-Fi is on.

    The second: How do I prevent my social networking apps from just opening on their own?
    Brrr... This I cant help you with. I dont use any social apps. But I would assume in the social app that you are using, you might want to check the settings portion of the app.
    Usually by pressing the 4 square menu button, or by tapping some kind of labelled button called "settings" or "menu".

    Hope this helps,

    - U

    What exactly do you mean, "opening on their own"?


    By the way, WELCOME, Taylorr!

    Hey Taylorr. Welcome to the forum!

    When you are using wifi, the E symbol (or H+ in my case) is still there. What disappears is the up/down arrows below the E. When the wifi symbol is showing, you will not be using cellular data.
