    Hi,

    We live in the sticks and we get a bit of a G connection here, maybe 1 bar if we are lucky.

    What I've found is that my samsung galaxy S with android 2.1 uses the G connection no matter how bad it is despite a perfectly good wifi connection here.

    It's only if the G cononection completely drops and the red no entry sign appears to show us that the carrier isn't available at all that suddenly the phone uses wifi.

    Is there a way to change the provider order so that the phone will use wifi before g/3g ?

    Olly

    Toggle the wifi.

    I found I had this problem when I enabled Wifi first then mobile data. The phone seems to use the last enabled network as its best preference.
