    Just a fun poll: How many people use Wifi over Data?

    I haven't had a reason to use Wifi instead of Data.

    No choice for both equally? I use data when I'm out of the house and not near a hot-spot. But the moment I'm home or near a hot-spot WiFi on.

    I'm actually amazed at how fast the browser is on just 3G (coming from a storm). Just jaw dropping fast.

    Been using WIFI when at work and home. Definitely faster. I've just been leaving WIFI on all the time lately, since it just auto-connects when I'm at work or home.

    Use Verizon's Data... We pay HUGE sums for it.

    Wifi at home, where the 3G signal can be spotty depending on which room I'm in. I only turn wifi on if I know I'm going to need it (like streaming Pandora) since I have to turn on SSID broadcast at the router to get the Droid to connect.

    I like using Wifi since it available where im at ... too bad WiFi doesn't like to work for me most of the time, Either it wont connect to the network when im in range or it connects and i have no data and have to reboot the phone but when it works its better then 3g imo

    I use wifi only when I'm home. On the go, it's pain in the neck to switch to wifi and look for a place with good reception.
