    Sorry if this has been beat to death...but I have searched and haven't found a real solution as of yet.

    Has anyone found a way to consistently switch between mobile data and WIFI ? Tonight it took me 3 reboots, setting changes, and 15 minutes to get my Charge to connect to my WIFI.

    I'd really like to use WIFI at home and the office but don't have time to constantly mess with it for minutes at a time.

    I have had no wifi issues with the Charge. It could be something with your router or something. All I have to do is pick the network and type in the password and everything is good. Toggle it off when you are done to regain 3g/4g connection.

    Thanks for your input, but I have had trouble with many different wireless networks so I don't think its my router. Since I have owned my phone it has never switched consistently.

    i have not had any issues with the wifi switching - but turning the Wifi on/off is done very easily (less than 2 seconds).

    also, juice defender is great at doing this for you (at its free). the app will turn data off when wifi is connected (but will not turn wifi off when not connected unless you get the paid version). but I turn off wifi when I leave my home anyway to save on battery life... able to go 1 1/2 days easily in between charges...
