When successfully connected to your Wi-Fi network, all data usage will go through your home’s Internet access instead of Lively's cellular network.
NOTE: Periodically check the Status Bar to confirm if you are connected to Wi-Fi. If not, data use may be deducted from your monthly data allowance. If you are connected to Wi-Fi, you will see this in the Status Bar.
