Manage access point groups

To avoid selecting a single access point every time the device makes a network connection, you can create a group that contains various access points to connect to that network and define the order in which the access points are used. For example, you can add Wi-Fi and packet data access points to an internet access point group, and use the group for browsing the web. If you give Wi-Fi the highest priority, the device connects to the internet through Wi-Fi, if available, and through a packet data connection if not.
