    Gt myself a smartphone (Sony Xperia U), and needless to say I'm having several teething problems.

    Firstly, how can I set it so I switch between 3G and Known Wifi connections automatically? I know iPhones and iPads do this automatically, but does android?

    Also, I've only gone for 100mb Internet. This is because I like to be disconnected when I'm out and about, and the only thing I want to use it for is push email. I was told by several people in shops that of course this is no problem (it's a student/work email so I'm not getting large emails or anything). However, when I switch on Date Roaming it warns me that "charges may apply and it's best to switch off when finished using it" and this freaked me out. But surely I always need it on to receive push email? (I think being updated every half an hour).

    Thanks for any help

    Data Roaming is not required to be turned on for Push Email, you will simply require the Data Enabled to be ticked to receive the emails within the time frame you specify.
