    My iphone 3gs have a problem that once the wifi signal lost, goes weak or the phone is idle for a few mintues. It is not connect to the wifi anymore. I had to manually go to "setting"=> "wifi" and find the network and connect it every time I need to use wifi.

    I don't know why it does not automatically join in wifi and stay there. It is very annoying, I won't be able to receive imessage unless I went to wifi setting to connect it again. I almost want to switch to an Android phone because of this. My phone is just jailbroken on iOS 5.0.1, could jailbroken has anything to do with it?

    Switch to android just because your phone is broken? Why not get it replaced instead so you don't have to live with that annoying wifi-thingy.

    Anyways, have you tried going into the network you are connected too in the wifi settings and then push "remember this network" or does it say "forget this network" ?

    Have you enabled or disabled "ask to join networks" ?

    I enabled "ask to join networks", I went into the network, it says "forget this network". It is not under warranty, so I won't be able to replace it. The wifi is working fine otherwise, it just not automatically join in as what I expected.
