    From your homescreen press menu>Settings>Wireless & Networks. Make sure Airplane Mode is not checked and make sure WiFi is checked. Then, scroll down and look for Mobile Networks. Click it, and check "Data Enabled." That should restore function to all of the wireless features.

    In the future, do not disable your 3G data connection when connecting to WiFi; Android will do this by default, and will automatically reconnect when you lose/disconnect WiFi.

    hi thanks i clicked on mobile networks and it did not come up with data enable it came up with data roaming, access point names, use only 2g networks, or network operators. also why i turn off the 3g was because my phone was connecting to it when i was at home and it was costing me money.

    Hi Diane

    Try the Samsung specific forum for you phone (go to main android forum home page and scroll down .. you'll see the lists of phones at the bottom) and post there ... they'll be able to give you specific tips about your phone's individual settings. But when you ago into Access Point Names can you "enable" your service providers APN e.g. Vodafone Live if with vodafone? This is your 3G connection AFAIK

    In my Desire HD I don't need an app to do what you want.. once I connect to wireless by ticking the box the Mobile Network tick box automatically changes to "use phone for data connection when wifi is not available". Your's should be something similar.
