If I were to choose to switch to using a smartphone - say an Iphone -- I would want to minimize my dependence on its wireless connection to use its smartphone features -- use its  wireless capabiity to support being a mobile phone and when I'm not within reach of a decent and free WiFi connection particular when I'm at home and have a very robust WiFi network (802.11n).  I would prefer to use Wifi if a connectoin is available in order to minimize how much of my data plan I need to use.  Understand that iPhone5 supports both WiFi and Wireless. Downloaded the Iphone manual and searching  on the word WiFi produced zilch.  Thanks!
