  5. Tap the Desired network.
    Note: Data transmitted over a Wi-Fi network does not count toward your AT&T data plan, and will not be billed. To manage whether your device automatically switches from a poor or unstable Wi-Fi network to the AT&T network to maintain a consistent data connection, Settings > Wi-Fi > More icon > Advanced > Auto connect. When using the AT&T network, data rates apply.
