    Should. I usually turn off Mobile Internet just in case. But, if there's a WiFi signal the phone will use it by default over mobile. JuicePlotter indicates that the active radio is WiFi whenever I'm in the house, and 3G/Cellular when I'm out and about.

    Anyone know how much battery is used when just leaving wifi on even when you're outdoors? Is my assumption that it would be a heavy drain since it's always searching for new networks correct?

    @vkdroid I read on another thread that Wifi uses less battery than 3G. So, counterintuitively, keep it on whenever you are accessing data. But, be careful about using an open Wifi connection, as it is unsecure. Don't login or access emails.
