Difference between Using the Internet using WIFI and using 3G

How can I tell the difference on my bill between Using the Internet using Wifi which doesn't use up my data allowance and using 3G which does?

I would presume internet/data using wifi doesnt show on your bill.

Re: Difference between Using the Internet using WIFI and using 3G

I don't know. All it says is Using the Internet. It doesn't specify whether it's via Wifi or 3G. If you tell me that Wifi access doesn't appear on the bill I'll believe you. There is some sense in that, though some measure of my internet use using Wifi would  be useful in itself.

Doesnt the  phone have a facility to measure data transfer & say whether it is wifi or phone traffic?, I'm pretty sure my current (Nokia Lumia 7350 & previous (Huawei) did.

Thank you. I know at the time I'm using it which one I'm using, but I was looking for a summary of bytes used on each one on my monthly bill.

You'll need to use an app on your handset to separate wifi and 3G usage figures. Your bill only shows data usage that Virgin Mobile are aware of, which is 3G only.
