    Exclamation Phone connects via 3G rather than wireless lan

    I own a N95 and my Dad owns an E71 and they both experience the same problem that is whenever a program requires an Internet connection it will automatically connect via 3G.

    I do not want this to happen as 3G data charges are expensive.

    How to I configure the phones such that when I use programs such as maps that the phone will always ask me what connection I'd like to use to connect to the Internet.

    This is really annoying me as I am unable to use certain programs because they require an Internet connection at startup, this effectively makes a lot of the phones sophisticated functions unavailable, such as email and others.

    In essence, the question is how do I configure the phones such that they will always ask me what connection type they will be using and always prioritise wireless lan over 3G/gprs.

    I look forward to a quick response, thank you.

    Check the application specific settings (usually Options > Settings when in an application).

    See also the "Settings" application and "Connection", "Packet data". Set the "Packet data connection" to "When needed" and "Access point" to "None", so that the phone doesn't automatically connect to a specific network operator access points.

    Thanks, although it works for Maps, it does not work for all programs.

    Also, I'd like to know whether i should allow HSPA.
