    Using 3G or Wi-fi?

    How do I know if my backflip is utilizing 3G or wi-fi while I'm browsing the web/using apps, etc?

    I see the 3G icon in the info bar with the two arrows that light up, but right next to it I see the wireless signal icon showing that it's connected to my network. Wi-fi is checked in my settings, so I'm assuming that's first on the priority.

    You shouldn't be seeing both icons. The 3G icon should go away if you are connected and using a Wifi connection. At least, that's what happens on my phone.

    I'm not sure what is happening in your case.

    Ah, now I'm seeing the wi-fi icon only. I guess it wasn't actually connected to the network, but it recognized it and was set to connect to it automatically, even though it didn't. I forgot to assign a static IP to my device, which was why it wasn't actually connecting.

    Edit: Except, of course, now it can't seem to connect to any websites even though it is connected to the network. Hopefully I'll figure out why soon
