New to iPhone and curious how to connect to a Wi-Fi network? Wi-Fi is faster than 3G and if you're on a tiered plan it's a great way to avoid wasting your precious data. This may seem simple for those of us who have had our iPhones for a while but if you haven't done it before, stay with us after the break to find out how to use Wi-Fi!
Here's how to connect to a Wi-Fi network on your iPhone or iPod touch. (It's also similar on iPad though the Settings app looks a little different.)
- Launch Settings and make sure that Wi-Fi is turned on.
- Check the available networks that appear under: Choose a Network.
- Tap network you would like to join.
- Enter the network password. If it's especially complicated, email it to your iPhone and cut and paste it in.
Bonus tip: If you're at Starbucks, the airport, or somewhere else that has free or paid Wi-Fi, a page may slide up asking you for an account login or to agree to their terms of service. Just fill this in the same way you'd log in via the web on a laptop. If you're not sure what the Wi-Fi password is, ask an employee or the administrator.
I hope this has helped out those new to smartphones!
