[Q] Mobile data stays on after wifi connects?
I have the Verizon G2. On previous phones, after I connect to wifi, i'm used to the 3g/4g logo disappearing from the notifications bar because the phone is smart enough to disable mobile data when wifi is working. I thought this was a standard stock feature.
I'm noticing on this device that those logos remain. I have a really poor signal in my office building so it switches from 3g-4g all day long. Obviously I can manually disable mobile data, or even use some apps to disable it automatically I'm sure, if that's necessary. Does anyone have a better understanding of how this works than I do?
I actually haven't noticed much impact to battery life so I'm not sure if it's something that even needs to be manually disabled? It's just confusing me why it would even bother trying to find 3g/4g signals when wifi is working and connected.
Edit: Well this convinced me to finally spend 5 minutes learning how to use Tasker and I set up a really basic profile to turn data on/off depending on my wifi connection. I'm still not sure how necessary it is but maybe I'll compare battery life with it enabled or not enabled.
