Please help, this is driving me mad!
I have bought a new phone, Samsung J3, it is connected to WiFi but it says it's offline, but only at home!
We got it working in my local bar yesterday, we could get on fb, whatsapp etc. It just doesn't work at home.
Our other phones, tablets and laptops are all fine.
Please can someone help, it needs to be 'idiot' proof!!

Wi-Fi
tap on the wi-fi in question and tap 'forget'
restart your phone and then try to connect to your wi-fi again. You will obviously need to enter your password again.

Any help?

It sounds like your cellular data is running and so using your credit. If you're continually receiving emails and other notifications when you're outside of free WiFi access, your data is taking care of sending them to you and you get charged for it.
