I have wifi on my BB 9700 and also have the data package ($5/10MB). If I go into a Starbucks with both 3G and wifi turned on, and access the internet, which will be used? At the AT&T store, they says the wifi will be used and not 3G, but from my account, it appears that my data MB is being decremented. Do I need to turn 3G off before I use the internet with wifi? That would be a nuisance but it is better than being charged for usage when I don't need it. Thanks!

If I turn off 3G don't I turn off both data and phone? On the BB 9700, I don't see how to enable phone w/o data. It's just one choice, AT&T 3G. Please clarify for me. Thanks.

Read p. 240 of the BB 9700 manual, under "Turn on or turn off data service or set roaming options". If you don't find any info, contact AT&T directly or post in the BB forum.

That was a good idea, but I just tried it. Turning off data services also turns off wifi so I can't use this option. Thanks for trying.
