    Dumb question alert!

    If I have wi-fi enabled and unlimited data plan... and I bring up the browser... am I using the browser over the data plan or the wi-fi? How do I know?

    If you have wifi enabled your not using 3G so you aren't using the unlimited data while connected over wifi.

    So simply by having wi-fi enabled means that I'm using that (by default) over the data plan?

    PS Thanks for your help!

    Only if you are connected to a wireless network.

    If you have Wifi enabled(and are connected to it) you will be using your Wifi instead of your data plan, it's always like that if your connected via Wifi, when you aren't using Wifi your using your data plan.

    Np :)
