How to scan for Wi-Fi?

Two part question:

 

1) Can the 8900 automatically scan for open Wi-Fi spots and show them in the Wi-Fi options? I see the "Scan For Networks" option in setup... but it looks like a maual operation.

 

2) If it can scan, can it also automatically join a network?

 

Thx!

You need to scan manually the first time and add the conection to your device

 

2) If it can scan, can it also automatically join a network?

If you have saved a Wifi connection on your device (for example your home), and the wifi is turned on, the next time you are in range with the Network the device is connected automatically.
