    Hi all. After updating to 2.1 i have noticed that both the wifi and mobile connection icons are visable when i am connected to wifi. Does wifi automatically overide the mobile connection or is there a setting that needs to be changed? Thanks

    Paulus, I can't find this setting - I thought this was an interesting query. Not sure if the OP can find it though...

    settings>wireless & networks>mobile networks>now uncheck data traffic to force wifi as default - don't forget to switch it back on when you're finished with wifi

    I don't have those settings with an At&t device:

    Setting/Wireless Controls/Mobile Network/
    MMS & Data (off/on)
    Data Roaming (off/on)

    "APN Droid" is the best one for this. I've been using it for ages.
