    hi all. just want to ask if there's a way to automatically turn off wifi when not connected to internet?
    I found an app to do this : https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...pro_googleplay
    but wondering if there's a way to do it without an app, or if there's other free app to do this.

    thanks in advance

    ps. another question. is there specific forum for htc desire vc?

    I know that you can have Llama do this as well as about a million other cool things. For instance, when I enter my Home area, Llama turns on wifi but if it doesn't connect to my home wifi within 10 minutes, it turns off. You could set this up for any area you visit that has wifi. There is a thread here about Llama , take a look. FYI it's free!

    Thanks for the reply, i ll check the app out

    Edit:
    Oke Llama is good, but doesnt suit my need. I dont want to turn off WiFi because of no WiFi connection, I want to turn it off because the existing (and connected) WiFi connection doesnt connect to the internet.

    For example, sometimes when the internet connection at home is down, from the ISP, phone is still connected to the WiFi, but has no internet connection, so no IM will be sent to my phone.
    If i m aware of this, I can turn it off manually, so the phone will use mobile data instead. But if not, the phone will still use WiFi instead of mobile data, while I only assume that there'd no new mail or IM. until I manually check the internet connection (ie. Open a webpage), and realise that the phone is not connected to the internet.

    Or at least, is there any difference or indicator from the WiFi icon if the WiFi has internet connection or not?
    Thanks anyway.
