    wi-fi. vs 3g

    If im surfing on wi fi.... does that count on my data counter? Since im not on 3g? Since the unlimited might someday go away... . Is wifi the way to go when its is available?

    Until data caps become a reality on Verizon, it makes no difference whatsoever whether you're using wifi or 3G. In most cases, wifi will be faster unless you're using using dialup or crappy dsl. When using wifi, data is transferred over wifi. When using 3G, data is transferred over 3G.

    I don't know what you're talking about.

    To answer the question, wifi does not count towards your data usage per your wireless carrier. Using wifi is the answer to the tiered data. Also, the tiered data usage probably won't come into effect until 4G is introduced. The Verizon CFO said that.

    You made no sense in this statement that I re-quoted. Wifi does not count towards your cellular carrier data.

    Yea I read it and didn't make any sense to me either and you didn't answer the question. He was wondering if you only get charged when you use 3G or when you use wifi as well when for when verizon gets rid of the unlimited data plan. I think thats what he meant lol.
