Hi. I'd like to keep my phone connected to a local Wi-Fi network so that I can access a server on that network. However that network doesn't have a working internet connection. Can I keep my phone connected to Wi-Fi but let it use 3G for internet connection? Thank you

Normally when the WiFi is connected to a network the data is automatically disabled so I'd say no to your question.
But Super Download might help.

Could WiFi always scanning be used in this case perhaps? Try it by disabling your WiFi but leaving that option enabled under the Advanced settings.

Of course it wont work to use always scanning. It even says scanning in the name, meaning it simply allows the locations service to turn on wifi briefly in order to see local networks so it can use them to locate you.

What OP is asking for is not natively supported, and would probably require a bunch of modifications on a deep level.
