    When you have wifi turned on does G1 automatically switch bewteen g3 and wifi if available or are both working? How do you know which is working and which is faster if both available..say at home.

    When wifi is available the G1 will choose wifi over 3G. Once you out of range of you wifi it will automatically switch back to 3G.

    The G1 does not use both at the same time. Its one or the other.

    Also, it's not going to be a seamless switch. That is, let's say you're listening to streaming audio via Wifi. If you leave your house and switch over to 3G, the audio stream will drop and you'll have to re-initiate the stream.

    Yes, of course. Check out "imeem" in the Market. I ♥ that app. :D There are others too, but I haven't tried them yet.

    Ah, know that one! It's good, but... would be really great to have something just to listen Internet streaming radio stations, last.fm, pandora etc...

    Uh, that's what imeem is - it's just like Pandora for the iPhone (for all intents and purposes; it looks and works very similarly). Also, a last.fm client just showed up on the Market, but I haven't installed it.

    I actually changed my mind about imeem - it's pretty good! Especially compare with existing last.fm application which is kind of laggy.

    I have a new Samsung i9000 Galaxy S and when I leave a wifi area or it fails to connect to a wifi, it does not switch to 3g. I need to go to Airplane mode and back to get it to switch. I have change the wifi sleep mode to never when plugged in, did not help. I have talked with Samsung and they just said to do a factory reset which I would like to avoid. Any Ideals?
