iPhone keeps dropping off of wifi
So I'm using my iPhone 4 in bed as usual and it keeps dropping off of wifi. I have great wifi reception as Im literally like 4 feet away from the router, and yet it continually drops off of my wifi connection. Never happened before but now it keeps happening over and over again..
Anyone else experienced this?

I have had issues like this in the past as well. When I bought the router that I have now I had a very hard time getting my 3GS to stay on wi-fi for the first day or so. I kept telling it to forget the network and then would set it up from scratch and that seemed to fix the issue after a while.

Yeah, sometimes it just switches connections. Other times when I'm in an app that uses data like email or safari it Sometimes sees my network and asks me if I want to connect. When I select it, sometimes I get on and other times it asks me for the passkey. The crazy thing is the password Never works unless I leave the app and enter it in the settings app.
Wifi is as unreliable as my bluetooth connection which drops randomly but only when I know I am near a wifi signal whether it's a known network or not. I think the iPhone 4 has a serious radio problem.
All in all my iPhone experience is a bit marred by these issues as well as random massive 3G data charges when I hardly use it.
Apple really botched this one. I hope they fix it soon.
Yours sounds a little more serious. May have something to do with your router setup, if not it's likely a hardware issue.
I am at a loss for why the iPhone 4 gobbles more data though. I have 1GB and I never went over on my 3GS or 3G (which I used WAY more during the day at school than I do now at work), but now I go over on data every month.
Sometimes the wifi icon doesn't go away but it is still actually using 3G to connect! Other times I'm connected to wifi but the wifi icon isn't there and it keeps using 3G. Annoying as hell...
