    Could someone please tell me if Wifi is persistent on iOS 7? Meaning, does Wifi connection remain active even when your phone is locked? I cannot update to iOS 7 until I have a solution for this. I get no cell signal at work and it is very important for me to have Wifi on all the time. That is one reason why I am jailbroken. I use Insomnia to fix this. Thank you in advance! :D

    Afraid not :( Still turns off WiFi after about 45 seconds.

    Apple considers this a battery saving feature. It DOES save battery, but only if you have a half decent network connection, which is often not the case. :mad:

    Locked? Yes.
    Asleep? No.

    Thank you both! Looks like I will have to wait till iOS 7 is jailbroken then. :(
