    I've had my Nexus One since release (probably like most people here) and I've noticed that on occasion the 3g to wifi handoff in a wifi area sometimes doesn't happen.....for example, when I come home where I have an unsecured wifi connection, the phone won't automatically switch. When I go into the wifi settings, it detects the connection but says 'connection unsuccessful'. When I click to connect to my wifi, it does so immediately.

    And, when in this 'connection unsuccessful' mode, no matter where I go (work, home, airport), it will not automatically switch to the available wifi unless I go into the settings. I don't remember it happening the first couple of days with the phone, but maybe I just wasn't paying attention.

    Anyone else having this issue? Anyone have an answer? Overall, not that big a deal, I just would rather it be seemless ALL the time.

    Me too. Exact same issue. Weirdly, sometimes it works great and I'm surprised that it has picked up the network so fast. But often I'm left to switch wifi off and on again to get it to find the "remembered" network that's now in range.

    I've got the same issue. Sometimes it connects to my home network automatically, but most times I have to "reset" the unsuccessful connection to get it to work.

    I have the same issue. I have to go into wifi settings and choose my network connection, choose forget and then add it all over again. I thought it may have had something to do with my network set to not broadcast, but sometimes it does automatically connect. Anyone got any answers?
