Data priority: wifi vs wireless?

    Hi folks, a brand new Android user here, just got my Nexus S with Mobilicity "Back to School" deal - $25 for unlimited local calls, text, and data ... and I didn't even have to go back to school ;-)

    Since I have unlimited data (actually 5GB limit and throttled if I go over) this is probably not too important, but does anyone know what takes priority when I have both a wireless data plan, and a connected wifi?

    I've seen a couple of posts in this forum that sort of suggest it is a working wifi connection that will handle the data, and wireless will only kick in when necessary, but I'd like to confirm that on the Nexus S, as the posts I saw were for different phones.

    Looks good so far. Cheers

    Welcome to AF! Hope your enjoying your NS.

    If you are connected to Wifi it will always take priority over a data connection, unless it can't connect to the network. So you were correct. :)
