I don’t quite get the Wifi or 4G problem.I have the rgealur GalaxyS and if I toggle wifi it will automatically turn even 3G off and that is fine because when I’m and home and using web access I turn on wifi, otherwise it’s off.If we had 4G rolled here already, I would do it just the same on the go: turn it on when in use, turn it off when not to save some battery.In fact, I’d go so far as to call that basic common sense, since why would you want your wifi turned on all the time anyway?
