- Look for the Wifi symbol on the top of your cell to make sure your phone is connected to your home Wifi.
- Many businesses and libraries offer free Wifi. Ask for the passwords and how to connect to their free Wifi.
- Ask your friends and family for the passwords for their home Wifi passwords. Your phone should save the info for the next time you visit.
- Ask your home Internet Provider if they have free Wifi Hotspots (like Comcast’s Xfinity service ). Ask how to connect to them. You will probally need an username and password to get from your internet provider. Later, your phone should save the information and look for free Wifi Hot Spots for you. I was in a local business and was surprised to see I was connected to Wifi. I looked to see what Wifi I was connected to and saw that I was connected to a free mobile Comcast Xfinity Wifi Hotspot!
Sometimes you may need to turn off your Wifi for Apps to Work
Sometimes the $ Apps will not work properly if you are not getting a good internet on signal on your smartphone or device. If your App is not working right and you are far from a Wifi Signal or it is weak, you may have to manual turn of the Wifi to use your carriers Data Plan.
Saving Money with Your Internet Data Plan
If you do not have Unlimited Data or Share Data with other people on your plan you may want to call your carrier and ask them for a plan to stop overage on Internet Data when you go over your allotted Plans amount.
I have T Mobile and I am to cheap to buy the Unlimited Data Plan. I got the fast 4G Data Speed for a certain amount of Data. Once I (or any other users on my plan) get to a certain point of Data used up, I will get a text message warning me how close I am to the limit. If I hit my limit my internet speed will slow down, But I get no internet data overage (no bad suprises) on my bill!
I heard other phone companies do this option. I love it if you have kids or teenagers on your plan.
Warning, I used to have AT&T and we had all kind of problems where they could not block or turn off my son’s internet plan. I heard other AT&T customers telling me they could of helped us. Before we switched, I finally got an answer form AT&T that said that they could not help us with the Data Overage Problem, because of the type of phone it was ( I do not remember what is was).
