iphone accessing a network
I don't know if this is the right forum for this question.
Our network administrator said that one of my co-workers iPhone is accessing our wireless network to access the Internet. The co-worker has a data plan and thought that by using the hot spot feature she was accessing the internet through her phone. I don't understand how this could occur. The network is an encrypted wireless network. He said the phone will look for the closest available network and log into it even though it is password protected. Is what he is saying true? It seems if it was then an iPhone could access any network anywhere.
