I've noticed lately that I use WiFi at home almost everyday and every night, but I check to see how my 3G is doing quite often. Lately it's been non-existent during 5pm - Midnight the past few days.....:confused:

I only use WiFi, unless we have a lengthy power outage. Then, 3G. We have an OK signal (I'm on the edge of 3G/2G coverage). Tethering would be handy for those times (can you hear me now AT&T? ;) ).

3G. I don't use the WiFi. Of course normally at home these applications that need WiFi are usually already accessible on the computer, so I just leave it off; saves on battery since it's not scanning for a network when I'm on-the-go.

I use 3G because (1) often I will get a weak wireless connection, (2) often have problems roaming from one wireless network to the next, and (3) I'm paying a lot for it (that's $65/month just for the data plan).

So your poll is missing 3G only. My home is 3G covered, so I'm not using EDGE. :)

At home I use WiFi with Edge. At work I use WiFi with Edge. The only time I use 3G is when I am not connected to a WiFi network.

I use my wifi, there are times though when the cable seems to go dead. So I use EDGE, I rarely get a 3G signal at home. 3G is great when I'm traveling to London or elsewhere in the country.

wow! data is expensive over there! right now, my £20/month (sim only monthly contract, phone was not included) covers all my calls, texts and unlimited data. but if i were on a longer term contract that didn't include data, i could add it for something like £7.50 i think.

wifi + edge. i get 2 bars 3g at the most at home. i turn 3g off since that poor signal kills my battery.

I dont understand.

If you turn off 3G, dont you lose the ability to send and recienve calls and texts?

If not, I honestly had no idea you can do them over wifi? :confused:
