    Im having some wifi issues with my iphone... for some reason the phone keeps on defaulting to cellular data even when I have a strong wifi signal that its already aware of.... is there some sub menu where I can set the priority of which signal to use...?

    Thanks

    Try turning off cellular data and forcing the phone to use wifi.

    Done that..... but this doesnt seem to work, at least not upfront, I have to do that plus then turn the wifi off and on and then I will get it to grab the wifi signal....

    grrr..... is there some sub menu of preferences I need to deal with...?????

    Are you on a home network or something else? My guess is that the phone is having problems getting an IP address from the router.

    Question. Is it trying to connect to a WiFi network which needs you to check a box which asks if you agree to their terms and conditions? If you don't go to the browser and agree, it might finally give up and go back to cellular data.

    No.. no need to check any box... just a normal home network.

    Is this the only router you seem to be having problems with? i.e. Does it work when you are at work on wifi or a Starbucks?
