                                              Network Profile List

                                              Network profiles provide predefined settings for access to the wireless network and for authentication and encryption in your system. Your system administrator defines network profiles. You might have more than one network profile available to you, so you can access wireless network configurations at locations that use different service set identifiers (SSID) or authentication types.

                                              Your phone can have up to four enabled network profiles. Your phone automatically scans the profiles and selects the network profile with the matching SSID and settings for that specific wireless network.


                                              Note


                                              Consult with your system administrator if you need to have additional network profiles added or settings changed in a profile.


                                              Tips

                                              • If you need to change your username and password, see Set Username and Password, and consult with your system administrator.
