    Good evening all. Just thought that I would let everyone know about "wifi assist". For those of you who don't know, wifi assist will automatically use your mobile data when your connected wifi signal is poor. This usage may include document transfers and general data usage (Facebook, twitter, web surfing, etc). This feature can be very handy if you have a large mobile data limit on your contract or agreement with your provider. However those with a limited amount of mobile data may find that they are using all of their data limit and going over. Which generally means being charged extra and a higher phone bill. Personally I have Wifi Assist turned off as I like to know when I'm using my mobile data.
    To toggle wifi assist on and off :
    Settings > Mobile > Wifi Assist > Toggle the switch
