    Wifi is typically faster unless your in a public wifi with a lot people on it. It will switch to remembered wifi connections automatically when you come in range with them and the wifi icon will replace the 3g icon.

    That is my experience at home. The 3G is replaced by the wifi icon and is generally faster.

    I thought I saw a way to turn the wifi on only when it picks up a certain router. Is that true? If so, how do I do it. Also, when I am away from that router will the wifi turn itself off until I am within range of the set wifi?

    Just picked up my Droid yesterday, so I am sure questions and searches will be flowing. Thanks in advance.

    It cannot pick up a router unless it is on. I would turn it off unless you have a known wifi in range and would like to use it.
