    Hello, first time question here and new forum member. I cannot determine when I am accessing the web through ATT, or my home wifi connection. I set up my iphone 4 to see my home wifi and turned it on. The problem is that when I surf the web at home I can't tell if I am burning up ATT bandwidth, or I'm using my wifi. It there a priority (e.g., the phone uses wifi if available first and the ATT data system second)?
    Thanks for the help, the forum content is really cool. Skip

    Look in the upper left-hand corner of your screen. If you 're using 3G it will say "AT&T 3G". If you have made a WiFi connection there will a symbol (hard to describe) instead. The number of arcs in the symbol denote signal strength.
