The iPhone is much more than a phone. More like a tiny computer, the iPhone can go anywhere you go and help you keep tabs on your life when you aren't near a computer. Using the iPhone, users have access to e-mail, Internet and more, with or without connecting to Wi-Fi. If no wireless networks are available, the iPhone will connect to the 3G network, a cellular data network, automatically. If it does not automatically connect to the 3G network, you can connect manually.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Tap the "Settings" icon on the home screen of your iPhone.

  2. 2

    Tap "Wi-Fi" and then tap the "On/Off" button to turn Wi-Fi enabling off. The iPhone should automatically default to 3G, but if it does not, you can enable 3G manually.

  3. 3

    Tap the "Settings" button at the top left of the screen to take you back to the Settings page.

  4. 4

    Scroll down and tap the "General" icon.

  5. 5

    Tap the "Network" icon and tap the "Enable 3G" button to turn 3G on.

  6. 6

    Check the top left corner of your screen to see if "3G" is displayed next to the signal strength.
