    Answer a few quick questions to evaluate your visit.

    Wi-Fi

    Use Wi-Fi to surf the internet, download applications, or send and receive emails. Once you have connected to a Wi-Fi network, your device remembers the network and automatically connects to it the next time you come within range.

    Available Wi-Fi networks may be open or secured. Secured networks are indicated by (Wi-Fi lock icon) next to the Wi-Fi network name.

    Note

    Some Wi-Fi networks do not show up in the list of available networks because they do not broadcast their network name (SSID). If you know the network name, you can add it manually to your list of available Wi-Fi networks.
