    Question Bold and connection choices - which ones does it use?

    Advertisement



    How does the bold decide when choosing what connection to use?

    Will it auto switch to Wifi when I get home? Will it switch back to 3G once I leave?

    It seems to pull down my email from wifi when I disconnect from the network. Will it do this automatically if I leave both on?

    Also, is there a way to prioritize the list?

    Curious what peoples' experience is with this.

    Thanks.

    The Bold definitely seamlessly switches between both, I just walked in my house and the Bold picked up my connexion and my BBM conversation i was having never ended or lagged up.

    The Bold will Use Wifi when available and in range, as soon as you leave the connection area of your Wifi spot, it will change automaticly to EDGE or 3G what ever you use, and when you return will automaticly switch back to Wifi (providing you still have it enabled)

    NOTE: Wifi some times takes a number of seconds to connect, Also Leaving Wifi enabled 24/7 draw extra power from the battery
