    Hi,
    Im a complete newbie to all things android and mobile internet so please help and humour me :D

    Just got my galaxy s yesterday-absolutely fantastic phone, really pleased with it.

    Two perhaps dumb questions if anyone can help please?

    How do you tell if you are using your wifi connection or connecting through your mobile internet?

    Is there a way of choosing which one you want to use?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated thanks

    If your phone is connected to your wifi a little symbol which similar to this...

    ..appears by the signal strength indicator at the top of the screen.

    I've found applications will automatically use wifi, if it's connected, rather than the 3G.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes, I do have that symbol and my phone is connected to my router but I cannot tell which I am using.

    How can you tell that your applications are using your wifi or not?
    thanks
