    I have a problem with my iPhone wifi if anyone can help...

    In my contract I get free wifi through "open-zone" and "the cloud" hotspots. I can pick up one in my home, but it is slow and very weak. The hotspot is at the end of my road so I always walk past it to get home, so my iPhone connects to it automatically. Unfortunately that means it doesn't switch to my home wifi when I get in.

    One solution was obvious- I told my iPhone to forget the hotspot, but that means it won't connect to other "open-zone" and "the cloud" areas when I am out.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    When your phone is "sleeping" after a couple of minutes it should turn off the wireless and when you "wake" it, it should just find the strongest link. If you walk home and want to get on your wireless as soon as you get home, then just go into your wifi settings and either turn it on/off to pick up your home or just select your home wifi.
