Tips and warnings

  • Connection speeds on your Wi-Fi device will depend on the signal quality of your N95. Ideally you will only use this as an alternative Internet connection. (reference 2)
  • Data rates will apply. It's recommended that you have unlimited data on your service plan if you want to use this feature.
