    Hope this is an ok forum to post this in, but I have some who "sells Verizon phones" telling me that "an android phone, it is WiFi capable, BUT All your apps and widgets still run off the 3G coverage"

    I shut my 3G off on my phone and my apps and widgets work just fine.

    I am on Froyo and shut off the 3G by doing this...

    Settings -> Wireless & networks -> (at the bottom) Mobile networks
    Uncheck "Data Enabled"

    Nothing works, web, apps, etc when I turn off 3G.

    I turn on WiFi and everything works just fine.

    Any advise/input?

    I advise you just to put into airplane mode and you'll accomplish the same thing.

    Outside of that, you answered your own question. Of course apps work on wifi, I use it to play Home Run Battle 3D all the time.
