May seem like a stupid question but as a non-iphone user I have no idea Tongue out

How do you tell if youre using a local Wifi connection or your mobile data when youre browsing sites etc on an iPhone ?

I ask as the managers here have just recieved nice new shiny iPhones and we dont want them using a large amount of mobile data Smile

Need to be able to show/tell them how to tell what connection the data is coming from before we start getting $1000 bills for everyone ;)

TIA

This site explains all the connection symbols that are displayed on the screen:

In your case when connected to a tower you'll either have the symbol from photos 1 and 3, when connected to wi-fi it will be the symbol in photo 4.

Google results show:

In the top left hand corner of your iphone you'll see your carrier name, next to that you'll either see a 3G if your on your carriers 3g network or a logo that looks like a wireless broadcast arcing ping type icon (excuse my explanations) when you are on your wifi connection

and

when you have the wifi symbol (its like "(((" but pointing up) on the menubar its prioritized to using wifi first, it it has 3G, E or o symbol you are on the mobile data.

The only way to know if you are on WIfi is there will be a small wifi symbol on the right of the Carrier identifier up the top of the screen.

If you loose wifi then it will use mobile data automaticlly.
