    Yea I think I was certainly confused. It's all good. I see that you need network coverage to receive calls and texts with all carriers. For some reason I was thinking that with the iphone on AT&T you could get calls and texts while on wifi only and no network coverage but I was mistaken. On a separate note, I was seriously considering switching from my X to the iphone when it comes out but I'm really beginning to truly love this phone. The capabilities seem to be endless. I'm predicting a March release of a 4G LTE capable iphone to Verizon. What do you guys think?

    How would using wi-fi at home extend battery life? I thought turning on wif-fi uses more battery?
    I am glad to hear about the GPS though.

    When connected to a wifi network, the phone will use less battery than when using 3G. Some folks think having wifi on and not connected uses more battery as the wifi app searches for networks. So, if connected - good; if not connected - bad. :)

    When I had my iPhone prior to the X I used either Vonage or Skype to make and receive calls on wi-fi without a cell signal. It came in very handy when on vacation in Mexico. I wish I could find a way to do that on the X.

    Ok. So basically when at home or somewhere with a good wi-fi connection I should turn wi-fi on. Otherwise it should be off. Good to know.
