Wi-Fi

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:

1. Press and tap > Settings > Connections > Wi-Fi.

2. Tap the ON/OFF switch to turn Wi-Fi On.

Tip: You can also turn Wi-Fi on and off through the Notification panel. Drag the Notification panel down and tap 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 wireless networks.
