wifi vs bluetooth

Just starting out with a Playbook and wondering, I am connected to the wireless in the office as well as bluetooth to my bb phone. Wehn i sue the tablet does it draw on the wifi first or is it drawing from my phone and it's data plan first?

Re: wifi vs bluetooth

I think WiFi takes priority.  Here is an easy test.  While connected to both, use the PB to go to any website (youtube, etc)

Take a look at the phone while the site is loading.  If you see the send receive arrows going like crazy, then you know its using the BT connection.  I still think WiFi takes priority though.
