    X is rooted for a LONG time... Just recently when wifi connected 3G stays on and seems toforce wifi to disconnect... Have resorted to Data Switch app to turn off 3G when wifi connected

    Any thoughts as to why this is happening all of a sudden?

    When my phone was doing that it was because there wasn't a signal to the wifi because the password was incorrect

    Well I don't think that's it because when I turn the 3g off it stays connected to wifi fine
