Hi I have a USA version 2g iphone which has been unlocked since I bought new 2 years ago via apple store, used pay as you go but now have an virgin contract and sim in iphone, it cost 30p a day to use the net which is fine but if I use the phone at home it should pick up my wireless router and no costs involved, only it doesn't and I get charged even if by accident if I touch mail button its pain as I want to use it in the home.
Could any one tell me what setting to use?? so I have the option to use at home or if out via virgin at the moment I only have 1 choice, it never asks just does it and the only way to find out is to look at your virgin bill. Virgin could not help as no info on iphone.

Well first things first, make sure that the phone is working on your home's wifi connection, you'll see the wifi logo on the top bar to confirm this.

Then you can simply disable your 3G whilst at home (just to be safe) and then re-enable it when you're out and about.

you wont see that option on your 2g, however you should be able to use Wifi - i have a 2g iphone that i use with a virgin sim and i pay an extra £7 per month for unlimited internet usage - but i DO use wifi at home.
