Noob needs help.


How can I be sure my call is on WiFi and not 3G?


3G data is a hell of a price here (I'm posted in Saudi) and I'd rather just drop the call if the base WiFi drops out. As far as I can see, there is no easy way to mandate this, or even know what's happening. Am I missing something?

The easiest way to go about this is to disable Cellular data in your iPhone.




If you disable Cellular Data it will be WiFi or nothing...

There's no way to currently do this.  It needs to be added as a setting though, 3g cost isn't a problem for me but the call quality I get is so poor as to be useless.  I also want a settings toggle that only signs into skype while on wifi.
