i have had my 8900 for a week and loving it, i keep finding questions to ask though.
Obviously i have a data plan for it, so i can down load things and make use of the full functions
I have also set it up to find and connect to my BT home hub router at home.
Im amazed how it picks it up so quickly, from the time i pull on the drive.
MY question is. When im at home, when i go to download things, like apps use the browser. does it automatically use my wifi connection to downlaod them and not the data plan? ( i must admit it does seem quicker)

What carrier are you using?
I am on T-Mobile, the unlimited blackberry plan. That meana unilimited data. I can use the Wi-Fi for internet and calling no problem. But with T-Mobile even though I am using the Wi-Fi for phone calls if I do not sign up for the extra $9.99 unlimited Wi-Fi calling, I am still using my minutes when making calls on the Wi-Fi.
Since the internet is unlimited, I use the Wi-Fi because it is faster than their EDGE network.

im with Vodafone, yeah mine is unlimited data lan which you have to have.
All im after knowing is once my 8900 has picked up my wi-fi when im at home. Does that take over the downloading rather than my 8900 using my data plan, so therefor it downloads quicker etc? i mean with out me having to do anything.
