    Like the other two gentlemen whose questions weren’t answered; when I try to access our wireless network at home I am not prompted for a password; I get a screen that asks me to choose DHCP,BOOTP or STATIC. No one knows what this is?

    If the network is not listed, tap Other… and manually enter the Wi-Fi network I can see the networks but when I click on them it takes me to an “IP address” screen where I can chose DHCP or BOOTP or STATIC…. anyone

    Shan and Monkey King ask the obvious and very good question which NOONE has answered; If when connected to a wireless AP how do you know that the data packets are routing through the AP and not via the 3G network?? Turningoff 3G is too painful, so doe sit route aoutmatically via Wireless?

    I followed all the mentioned steps many times, unfortunately, it is not connected inspite of changing the wireless network password (at home) and I tried to re-connect it agin. Knowing that other devices; such as the laptope, dreambox, etc can be connected easily. Please, help.
    Thanks

    Hello

    I am waiting on my very first iPhone from Vodafone, once this phone arrives is it as simple as plug my sim card in and away I go?
    Or will I have to run some updates first?
    Thanks.

    If you are on a Wi-Fi network, you aren’t billed for the data usage by the phone company. You can use a WiFi spot as much as you like without worry.

    Hi!
    When you connect to Wireless, is it still using your own Download data limit on your account? Or are you using the WiFi’s download limit.
    Sorry for the stupid question… New to iPhone!!

    Hey

    That just means that there is a key required to join the network. When you select the network to join, enter your key, then you should be able to connect easily :)
