    Newbie

    Hi all, had my N1 for a few days now still gettin used to something like this so will be asking a lot of what might seem stupid questions, so here we go, if i log into my wireless network at home does that mean i'm not using any of my monthly allowance on my phone contract,
    Thx Andy

    Hi Jerry and welcome to the site, and there is no such thing as a stupid question, if you need help have a browse on the search and if you cant find it there then ask your questions will be answered quickly.

    And to answer you question Yes and possibly no. if you are on a plan that ignores WIFI then using it will save your monthly usage...BUT....if your on one of these plans that charges you to use WIFI then using it will drain your monthly usage

    When you connect to your home Wifi network, your phone provider does not even know that. I'm not sure how you think they might charge you for using your own network.

    When the iphone wad first released they charged you for data transmitted via wifi and even today some plans either exclude wifi use or charge for data used even on home networks.

    I'd like to see some confirmation of this, because I've never heard of such a thing and don't believe that it's even possible.

    Not sure how it came to be and didnt last long but both apple and blackberry charged users for the amount of data that was used over wifi and its the same with plans locking out wifi use altogether.

    If you want to disprove it you can have a go, i dont have any evidence but can defo recall it happening especially with the first generation of iPhone that lacked the proper 3g capabilities.

    My son has first generation iPhone and never had any issue with using Wifi freely. I think it's up to you to prove it, not for me to disprove.

    I was trying to make a new user happy, if you feel that it is you duty to prove that I am lying or misleading then go ahead, idk I know it happened and we get plenty of new and old users asking the same question that shows that there is an aura of uncertainty. And it is easily done, my monthly bill shows me, ans in some detail, data used via wifi both amounts and sites.

    http://blog.israeltech.net/iphone_wifi/

    That page shows that even the newest iPhone needs access to cell data to use wifi, now this could be what I am remembering but months ago or it could be a new instance of being charged for wifi.
