Your phone's data capabilities let you wirelessly access the Internet or your corporate network through a
variety of connections, including:


Wi-Fi provides wireless Internet access over distances of up to 300 feet. To use your phone's Wi-Fi, you
need access to a wireless access point or "hotspot".
The availability and range of the Wi-Fi signal depends on a number of factors, including infrastructure and
other objects through which the signal passes.

Turn Wi-Fi On and Connect to a Wi-Fi Network

2. Touch the OFF/ON switch to turn Wi-Fi on.
Tip: You can also turn Wi-Fi on and off through the Notifications panel. Drag the Notifications panel down
and touch Wi-Fi.
Note: Wi-Fi networks are self-discoverable, which means no additional steps are required for your phone
to connect to a Wi-Fi network. It may be necessary to provide a user name and password for certain
closed Wi-Fi networks.
