Internet

Learn how to create wireless connections and browse the web while keeping your
data costs down.
Define internet connections
If your network service provider charges you on a pay-as-you-use basis, you may
want to change the Wi-Fi and mobile data settings to reduce your data costs.
You can use different settings for roaming and at home.
Important:
Using encryption reduces the risk of others accessing your data.
Using a Wi-Fi connection is generally faster and less expensive than using a
mobile data connection. If both Wi-Fi and mobile data connections are available,
your phone uses the Wi-Fi connection.
On the start screen, swipe down from the top of the screen, and tap
1. Switch Wi-Fi networking to On
2. Select the connection you want to use.
Use a mobile data connection

Use a mobile data connection when roaming
On the start screen, swipe down from the top of the screen, tap ALL
SETTINGS > cellular+SIM, and switch Data roaming options to roam.
Connecting to the internet when roaming, especially when abroad, can raise data
costs substantially.
Data roaming means using your phone to receive data over networks that your
network service provider doesn't own or operate.
Tip:
You can also follow your data usage with the data sense app.
Connect your computer to the web

hotspot, and use your mobile data connection to access the internet with your
laptop or other device.
1. On the start screen, swipe down from the top of the screen, and tap ALL
