when you lose your wifi connection?
If you have your iphone set to use wifi and your phone is on wifi and you lose your wifi connection is your iphone suppose to switch back to using the network on its own? my wife was at home we have a wifi and our wifi went down. is the iphone suppose to switch back to using verizons network or just sit there like a lump of crap untill you toggle off wifi in your settings. i told her to shut off wifi and then she was able to get on facebook again. i thought this was an automatic thing? just curious
update: found out she unplugged our modem so it was on back up battery maybe thats why,

It should automatically switch back to Verizon. I will occasionally have this problem too. Even though your Internet went down your router is still on and because of this a connection between your phone and router will remain there just wont be any data transfer. Turning your wifi off on your iPhone and then on again breaks the connection.
