    Tried 4 ROMs so far, Skyraider 2.5.2 and 3.0, and Virtuous 2.7 and 3.0. My wifi completely turns itself off about a minute after beginning a phone call while on bluetooth. Can anyone please confirm if your wifi stays on and connected while on a bluetooth call, and if so, what ROM, radio and kernel are you running?

    Thank you!

    Ok, thanks. That's the exact same setup I'm running. Maybe I'll try removing some apps one by one and see. No idea what might be causing wifi to completely shut off. Thanks js!

    You may be on the right track there.
    I remember way back when doing a lot of PPC development, some devices' firmware could not handle having the WiFi and Bluetooth radios going at the same time.

    So apps had to be written so that if they switched from WiFi to Bluetooth they would turn off WiFi.

    Just maybe....

    I have used SkyRaider 3.0 Vanilla and Sense and also Virtious 2.7 and 3.01 . The biggest thing I use my phone for is music and streaming baseball games and I always listen over bluetooth and when I'm at home I'm doing this while connect to WiFI . I've never noticed a problem.
    I do however not use my phone over bluetooth it's strickly for audio, I can't stand taking a phone call with bluetooth. So I've never tried that

    MLB At Bat . It's great you can chose home and away streams, and it's very reliable and clean. The app is $15, although it would be a waste now.

    But I probably listened to 80 White Sox games this year, too bad they collapsed on themselves, I blame Manny lol

    I had almost the exact same problem with my first dinc. If I was on a phone call with my Bluetooth headset the WiFi would eventually cut out. This was a consistent problem i had from opening the box through many different roms. After replacing my phone for a different problem I no longer have the problem. My vote... flakey radio chip.

    Thanks everyone for your comments. I'm going to try flashing some different combinations of radios and Roms and see. Can't really exchange. Unrevoked forever........
