What is the Difference Between Cellular and Wi-Fi Data?

512 ratings | 101581 views
What’s the Difference between Cellular and Wi-Fi Data? So you want to know the difference between cellular and Wi-Fi data? Let’s start with what data is. Data is electronic information that’s sent from and to your phone. You use data when you: • Share photos or videos via email or on social media sites like Facebook • Send and receive email messages • Browse the Internet • Watch streaming videos on a website or using an app like YouTube™ • Listen to streaming music on a website or using an app like Pandora® • Follow turn-by-turn directions using the Maps App, or • Download apps from the Google Play™ Store Your Jitterbug Touch is automatically connected to a cellular network that is nationwide so you can rely on a connection just about anywhere you go. Just remember that when you’re connected on a cellular network, data is deducted from your monthly plan. Your Jitterbug Touch is also compatible with most Wi-Fi networks to access high-speed Internet without having to worry about using up your GreatCall data plan. So why not use Wi-Fi all the time? Well, while a cellular network is virtually everywhere, Wi-Fi has a more limited range. Fortunately, these days, most homes, businesses, and even airports provide free Wi-Fi. Consider connecting to these Wi-Fi networks, whenever possible.

Is it good to use cellular data all the time? It doesn't affect my phone right?
Ryder Wilson (1 month ago)
GreatCall ok thanks
GreatCall (1 month ago)
It shouldn't affect your phone itself, but many cellular data plans do have a certain limit. Using Wi-Fi when you can will prevent using up all of the cellular data and prevent any overage charges.

I've always been wondering what the heck Wi-Fi and cellular data mean, even though I use them in my life. This video clarified a lot to me. Though when am I supposed to Wi-Fi? When am I supposed to use cellular data?
GreatCall (2 months ago)
Great question! Commonly, cellular data plans have a certain limit. Using Wi-Fi when you can will prevent using up all of the cellular data and prevent any overage charges.

DATA is not electronic information! DATA is unprocessed information
Mushi John shrooms (3 months ago)
Packet data is transferred from your wireless or cellular modulated device via my father Andrew Johnson 202 gsm base station transceivers (cell towers) 1986 the primary route these packets take from your device too router to base station to satellite to international base station to your server. The primary algorithms were configured by my late father the bsic algorithm for allocating a cell in a designated cell area and the gpsr algorithm that choses wether to uplink too satellite or to go directly through a row of base stations this along with base station handover protocols is how you packet switch. The reason they don’t teach you this in school is because the original inventor died in 2001 and all the governments of the world have stolen his legacy and assets being 10 global inventor patents The csiro illegally brought my fathers Australian patent 2008 ceased it then reworded it and claims $228 million annually for WiFi royalty’s a base station is a big WiFi router

Billy Ballard (1 month ago)
UsT JSTREEM yeah .no signal then go bak to da da.
Wan HL (3 months ago)
it still depend on the speed and Ping value of the wifi network. Ping value is the latency and is most important for online gaming. If a wifi source is based on unstable or slow network, it may be unusable for most applications.
UsT JSTREEM (4 months ago)
GreatCall oh thanks I'm surprised that you replied lol
GreatCall (5 months ago)
It can be, especially if the Wi-Fi service is free or unlimited, compared to a limited data plan for a phone.

How comes wifi is not everywhere like why is wifi limited rage
Jake S Mario5537 (10 months ago)
GreatCall Hell yea lmao
GreatCall (10 months ago)
The range of Wi-Fi depends on the router, and most Wi-Fi routers have a range of 150-300 feet. Wouldn't it be nice if Wi-Fi could reach everywhere?
John Smith (1 year ago)
Why out bush do i get good cell coverage but poor 3g or 4g internet coverage? is internet signal blocked out easier?
GreatCall (1 year ago)
Hi, John, coverage can vary in different places. If possible, connect to wifi for better connection to the internet.
Simerjeet singh (1 year ago)
in India 4g is almost free of cost with 20 Mbps downloing speed or it may cost for 2 dollar for 30 GB data for a month and 6 dollars for 320GB

mobile data is very expensive, wifi 4free
Mr. T (3 months ago)
Lukas Graham WiFi is not free the only time that wifi is free is when you're in a public area. But while your in your house you are paying for Wi-Fi therefore it is not free.
Stephen Snell (1 year ago)
Lukas Graham It's not that bad if you're on Pay as You Go
stephen karetzky (2 years ago)
Why doesn't Great Call start making a computer tablet? Why not a cell phone where one can connect to the Internet? These are things that the kind of people who buy Great Call products--like me--want.
The Son (2 years ago)
+GreatCall I have a quick questions guys, so i have the iphone 6 and was wondering since im not using any data and im just using wifi, do i have to pay for any fees. Like for example, i have two computers and we usually pay from AT&T and now i have a iphone 6 now and was wondering if i would have to pay since im just using the WIFI at home and not a data plan.
