    Whenever I'm at home, and I unlock my phone after it's been sleeping for a few minutes, I see the "3G" symbol in the upper left quickly flash to the Wifi symbol. So basically, I guess it disconnects from Wifi and goes back to 3G after it's been inactive for a bit. My Android phone used to do this too, until I found the "advanced" Wifi settings and turned Wifi to always stay on. For some reason I thought the iPhone did this automatically, idkw. Is there a way for me to get my phone to do this? (stay on Wifi all the time?)

    No. It's an energy saving issue. The always on feature is for the iPod touch and iPad.
