Need an app to auto switch between Wifi & 3G

Ok, so my wife never remembers to switch between 3g and wifi when she gets home... sure were on unlimited, but that may change and it would be nice if there was an uto way to switch when youre out of our wifi range to go to 3g and viceversa?

Thank you!

Yep - Android

Seriously, you can't do this on the iPhone.

Your WiFi should turn off when you're not near a hotspot.

Leave wifi turned on all the time and buy her a car charger and a dock for her work.

That will do what you need, the only problem is the battery drain that comes from leaving wifi on all the time. So find ways to address that problem.

Not exactly the solution you were looking for, but it'll get the job done.
