Add, remove and modify added Wi-Fi networks

Add a Wi-Fi network manually

To use a Wi-Fi network that does not broadcast its name (SSID), you will need to manually add the network's details on your phone as described below. You can also add a network in this manner when you are not within range.

Once you've manually added a Wi-Fi network on your phone, your phone will remember this network along with any applicable security details, and connect to it automatically whenever it is within range.

  1. Turn Wi-Fi ON as described above.
  2. In the "Wi-Fi" screen, touch "+" in the bottom right corner to add a network.
  3. Enter the name of the network (SSID). If applicable, enter security or other network details.
  4. Touch "Save".

The information about the network is saved, and your phone will connect to this network automatically the next time you come within range.

Remove a network from added Wi-Fi networks

If you don't want your phone to automatically connect to a Wi-Fi network that you've added or if it's a network that you no longer use, you can make your phone "forget" the network.

  1. If Wi-Fi is not already ON, turn Wi-Fi ON as described above.
  2. In the "Wi-Fi" screen, touch the name of the network you want to forget.
  3. Touch "Forget network".

Modify a network's settings

  1. If Wi-Fi is not already ON, turn Wi-Fi ON as described above.
  2. In the "Wi-Fi" screen, touch & hold a network's name.
  3. Touch "Modify network".
  4. Make your changes.
  5. Touch "Save".

    TIP: To extend the battery life between charges, turn Wi-Fi OFF when you are not using it. You can also set your phone to disconnect automatically from Wi-Fi networks when it's in Sleep mode: On a Home screen, touch the Menu key (=) > Touch "System settings" > Touch "Wi-Fi" > Touch the Menu key (=) > Touch "Advanced" > Touch "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep" > Select "Never".
