    I have a quick question coming from the iPhone to the Epic.

    On the iPhone, 3G was always enabled as was wifi. Whenever I was in a wifi area, it would connect, and turn off 3G. However as soon as I got out of range of wifi, it would return to 3G for any data needs (checking email, etc).

    On my Epic, it seems that I can only choose to turn one on at a time. So if I'm at work on wifi, but step outside, I have to manually disable wifi and enable 3G before I can check my email.

    That just seems completely silly to me. I'm sure I'm missing something basic here. Can anyone help?

    Once you're outside the WiFi area your phone should automatically switch to 3G without you doing anything.

    When I'm at home I use 3G but the second I get in the car and drive out of my driveway, it's back to 3G. Not sure why yours doesn't auto switch. I'll mess with my settings a little and see what I can come up with.
