    I bought the new s5 yesterday and have been told by my service provider namely Virgin that I have to keep my wi fi turned off all the time or I will not be able to receive calls,emails or text messages. They informed me that they only provide 3g and told me convert my phone back to 3g.
    Can anyone tell me please is there anyway around this problem with the wi fi as I am really eating into my allowance now.
    Many thanks,
    Alan.

    I can't believe you got that message right. Which country are you in? UK? If they only provided 3G it wouldn't matter what setting you selected.
    Do you have a home broadband deal with Virgin? You can surely use any wifi you want. Phone calls are not data.
    Need more info.

    Ridiculously expensive at Virgin UK without a home media account. Still too expensive with.
    I hope you got a great deal. You need a minimum of 1.5gb to use your phone in comfort I would suggest. Plus at least 2 gb on wifi.
