Does Wifi use T-Mo's Data Plan
Hello all. Just wondering if there is any way to use my home wifi with my Vibrant and NOT incur any data plan usage during the session. Other than for calls, it doesn't seem right that I use up precious KBs on my data plan when using my home wifi for which another company is charging me. Thanks.

When you're using WiFi you don't use data from your plan. So as long as you have your WiFi on and are getting a WiFi signal, you're good to go!

I totally get the priority. Was just wondering about my data usage where T-Mo is concerned. Even with unlimited data, I occasionally get e message from them telling me that I have gone over. I tether my phone from work. I was hoping that data usage through my wifi at home wouldn't count towards that limit. Thanks all.

Its weird how this works, we know carriers have a softcap before they throttle, but T-Mobile is extremely open about it, and the soft cap is very generous. Verizon and Sprint don't say anything and then AT&T had a tier data plan only, off topic but very much worth mentioning. Anyways, you use wifi and any data you are using on your device goes through your home internet, so none of your actual cell data is used.
