3G/Media Net - How do I know it's connected? Samsung Flight II

I just bought my kids the Flight II. They know they are not to use Media Net. What I don't know is how can they tell whether they've connected by accident? The phone has said 3G in the left hand corner since it was turned on, so I don't think that's it. I'm an iPhone user, so I'm clueless. Thanks in advance!

The best thing you can do if you don't want your kids to access the MediaNet is to call ATT and have them place a data block on the line(s).  This will prevent all data charges.  However this will also prevent MMS/Picture messaging (text messages will still work fine), so it could be a good thing or bad thing depending if you think your kids should be sending picture messages or not.

 

I haven't tried with that phone but you might be able to change the connection settings to something bogus so it cannot connect.  Like down at step 9 put the MediaNet Access Name to something like "wap.bogus" and the proxy address to something like "wireless.bogus.com:80
