If I am at work or at home and can connect to my wireless internet will this count as data usage on my verizon plan. I only got the 105mb plan because I really only "need" access to email. It would be nice to access the internet if I can do it without running the chance of incurring overages.
If so, how do I make sure I am not using the phones data plan?
Sorry if this is covered elsewhere. This is my first smartphone and I am not sure what I have gotten myself into. Thanks.
Well the $15.00 plan is 150 MB not 105 and with that plan you should usse WI-Fi as much as possible thats what I do. I use at home and at a friends house because MB ad up quick with these phones, I had an EnV Touch and would use 25 a month and now with smart phone I used 300 and used WI-FI alot and id just a little more than I normally did on ENV but more to play with on Fascinate. Check data usage on phone (mY Verizon) or text #data or on pc
Make sure that not only the Wi-Fi is on, but that it's connected. turning on WiFi doesn't automatically connect it unless you've connected to that same WiFi before. You'll know if you're connected by checking the icon next to the signal strength indicator. If it says 3G then you're using your data allowance.
Also, if you're on a family plan and this is your first phone you can take advantage of the smartphones talk free promotion. They give you a $10 credit if you get the unlimited plan so it only ends up costing you $5 more than the 150MB plan, and lasts for the term of the contract.
