Torch usage on wifi over grps

Hi,

 

Can anyone please assist?

 

I have recently upgraded to a Torch and I am finding that when I am in the vacinity of a wifi hotspot, including my home wifi, the phone recognises this and shows I am connected, however when I use the web for browsing or youtube apps etc, the phone connects via 3G/gprs and not the wifi.

 

Can anyone please advise me how I can set up the phone to amend this?

 

Many thanks.

 

David.

Re: Torch usage on wifi over grps

Possibly a dumb one... but how do you know its using data over 3G rather than wifi if you are connected to both?

Re: Torch usage on wifi over grps

The Torch (and Blackberrys with WiFi) when connected to a WiFi router will always, by default, use the WiFi connection for the data transfer.
