    I have done searching online and it seems to be a problem with this phone, for some people. Is anybody here experiencing a problem where if you connect to a Bluetooth device your Wifi will stop working? Of course once you disconnect the device then it will work again. Mobile data will work just fine with Bluetooth.

    Some people report that it does not do this in safe mode (which points to an app issue) but others report that it does do it in safe mode. Also, from what I've read, Google doesn't recognize this as an issue but will do a warrant exchange. However, if they do an exchange and they cannot replicate the issue then you are charged for the new phone.

    No such issues here. I often start my car in my garage, with both Bluetooth and WiFi on. My phone connects to my car's Sync system via Bluetooth just fine without dropping WiFi.

    Some people believe that it is device (BT) specific but I am not sure why it would be. I try using a simple plantronics headset and it won't work with that. The Bluetooth always takes over the WiFi. This issue is making me wish that I hadn't purchased this phone. I work remotely and I am on my phone about 5-6 hours a day so it is very problematic.

    I am having this issue as well. I guess I will start uninstalling apps to see if I can figure
    out which app is causing this issue for me. This is very frustrating. I didn't expect to have this kind of issue with the Nexus 4. I have the same apps (and much more) on my Galaxy Nexus with no problems whatsoever.

    I'm in the process of wiping the phone and re-installing the newest build. I'll then try it and if it works go one app at a time until I figure out which is causing my issue.
