Connections Optimizer
The Connections Optimizer is a tool that automatically selects the best mobile network for your phone, including "remembered" Wi-Fi networks.
About Connections Optimizer
The Connections Optimizer helps you manage and enhance your data experience by finding and connecting to "remembered" Wi-Fi networks on your phone. Remembered Wi-Fi networks are networks with which you have previously chosen to connect. Active Wi-Fi connections may offer improved performance and generally improve battery life while allowing you to talk on the phone and use data at the same time.
The Connections Optimizer works by searching for available "remembered" Wi-Fi networks. If you do not leave your Wi-Fi antenna on all the time, you will only notice the Connections Optimizer operating at certain times of the day in a small number of locations on the network. Your Wi-Fi antenna will conserve battery by scanning for connections periodically (not continuously), and if no connection is achieved, the antennas will be turned off. You may also manually turn the antennas off during the scan period.
To facilitate quality assurance and enable feature enhancements, information is collected about your battery levels, Wi-Fi and network connections and usage. No personal information is collected.
Enable Connections Optimizer
Follow the instructions below to enable the Connections Optimizer.
1. Touch > > Settings > Mobile networks > Connections Optimizer.

Depending on the applications that you have added to your phone, you might be able to use your phone as a transit pass or as an access pass, by tapping the back of your phone against an NFCenabled access point, subject to applicable terms and conditions from the particular vendor.
To use NFC technology on your phone, your phone must be within approximately 0.78 in. (2 cm) of the NFC-enabled smartphone, smart accessory, NFC-enabled access point, or smart tag that you want to exchange information with. When information is transferred over an NFC connection, your smartphone vibrates.
