Nexus 5 WiFi vs. Data Usage
I have browsed through the forum and couldn't find anything similar to my issue, so here I am hoping to get some answeres and tips on fixing my current problem.
I have seen several videos online with other phones showing how you can setup your phone to automatically switch to WiFi useage when the phone comes within range of a WiFi network, this keeps the phone from using up the carriers data usage. I have been unable to get this to work for my Nexus 5.
I have my WiFi setup that it connects directly to my WiFi when I get within range and it shows that it's connected, but my carrier is showing that I'm still using up all of my Data Usage limits (T-Mobile). I don't use the phone for Facebook, Videos or anything other than text and phone calls when I'm not at home and not connected to WiFi, but I'm only 9 days into the month and I've already hit my 3 gig data limit... how is this happening if my phone shows it's connected to my Wifi when I'm accessing videos & Facebook? Does the Nexus 5 not switch over to WiFi usage when connected automatically or do I need to do something in the settings to tell it to do this? How could I fix this problem?
Thank you for your help!!!
