Got a new Blaze U8510 Android phone from Phones4you.

But this is where my problem comes in, whne I leave the house out of range of my WIFI I of course can not get any Internet access, so is there another way to get Internet access when I am out of range as I find others can do this but I can not as yet.

Any help will be great,

Hello digitalspirit. Welcome to the forums.

It sounds like you do not have a data plan with a carrier such as Virgin Mobile. If you call them and set up a plan, you'll get internet access everywhere they have towers.

If it's mobile wifi hotspots only that you want to use as internet access, you don't need a data plan with a carrier, and can just set up your device to detect wifi hotspots on the fly. Go into the "wifi and networks" (or some such wording in your menu > settings) and you'll see menu items for doing just that.

I've moved your thread to the U8510 device area for you, where others with that phone will help you with the particulars.
