    Hi I have a HTC desire on Orange, I currently get 500 mb of data which im using up really fast with app downloads etc. Ive hooked up to my Wi-fi router now, so if I turn on the wi-fi and connect to the internet at home will this use my ISP data not my mobile data allowance?

    Hi Dave,
    If the Desire is connected to your home wifi and the wifi signal is on in the taskbar at the top then yes, you won't be using your mobile data allowance.

    Just to confirm what Japester said, and also add that if you want to be extra sure, you can add a widget that lets you disable mobile data when you're not using it (under widgets -> settings), although that shouldn't be necessary it does give peace of mind (I do this just in case I wander out of a WiFi area while my phone's doing something data intensive).

    You can also check it's working using something like 3G Watchdog, which monitors your mobile data usage.
