Yes you would get a different IP address for sure. Your phone should show it cellular icon and not the wifi icon. If wifi is active you should see that.

You would have to examine your own system to see what wifi IP address you get

Almost certainly.  Your IP address is determined by the network you are on.  If you switch networks, you switch IP addresses.

Furthermore, there are two IP addresses that change.  Both your local network IP address and your public IP address change because they are both on different networks.  You can go to https://www.whatismyip.com/ to see what your public IP address is on the different networks.

Simple answer is yes, even with the question being vague.

Connected via a home WIFI router, your phone will usually have a "private" IP address,  probably (10.x.x.x or  192.168.x.x). The Router will use Network Address Translation, and servers on the internet will see its traffic coming from the IP address that your ISP allocates to the external interface of your router.

When connected via mobile data, you MAY also get a private IP address and the Telco will NAT it in a similar manner or you may get an routable IP address.

In any case, it is very unlikely (but technically possible) that both type of connection will use the same IP address anywhere.

Why did you accept only one answer when they were all essentially the same. That was a most unfair selection
