    Here's the setup... Droid connected to Wifi. Good signal. Yet when I check, there is always SOME Non-WiFi data usage. Maybe 300kb every few hours. Not a lot but why isn't the Droid ALWAYS using the WiFi if it's connected? I'm with PagePlus so I don't have unlimited data.
    Thanks..

    Perhaps certain data has to be pulled from the cellular network, maybe MMS stuff. Could be some widgets are written to use cellular instead of wifi. Best thing to do is turn airplane mode on THEN turn wifi back on.
