I remember Apple released an iOS beta that would switch your wifi to cellular if there was no connection and vice versa!

So whatever happened to that? I thought that would be very innovative for once. Do you guys think Apple will bring that feature back with iOS 7?

The use cellular if wifi is slow/non-responsive?

No, I think it's bad. Or at least needs to be defaulted off.

Consider how many non-techies use iPhones and could run up phantom data plan bills.

As fast as 4G is, it's hard to tell it from wifi. I want to know if WIFI is buggered up. That needs to be fixed, not worked around. I can manually disable WIFI and it'll auto switch to cellular, and that's fine, it's a clear user choice.
