Can anyone tell me if I can use wi-fi on this thing without constantly defaulting to GPRS when out of range? I mean, I want to be able to use what feature I want, when I want. I donâ€™t want to pay for a data plan but I want to check my email at hotspots around the city. On my S710, I needed to app unlock the phone before I could install a third party application to block GPRS service. The GPRS would kick in when the wi-fi was out of range. Is it possible to block GPRS and only use GPRS on a Pearl?
I have my 8120 set to only use wi-fi for data services. I called up at&t and asked them to disable edge on my fone. now the home screen only shows gsm as opposed to edge. I read somewhere that if you dont want to dsable edge this way, u can also temporarily rename the edge network to an invalid name so it defaults to use wi-fi only. When u want to use edge u rename the invalid name to the to the proper one and then use edge only.
