No 3G or Wifi After Inactivity? (Wifi Issue)
This started happening last week. If I keep Wifi on and leave the phone alone for a bit, I'll notice that both signals will be off. Wifi and 3G. I unlock the device and see that the Wifi button has been disable on its own.
Everything will connect again after a few seconds and then I get flooded with missed emails, texts, etc. I already have the Wifi Sleep to NEVER. Not sure what's going on here.
Has anyone else had this issue? Any way to fix it?

hi PhoenixMike -
what are your settings in Settings>Battery Manager>Battery Mode?
i'm using a custom setting where my off-peak hours start around 11 p.m. - sometimes when i'm using the phone late (i.e., past 11) i'll notice that data connectivity turns itself off after ~15 minutes of activity (sometimes it seems like less, but i haven't paid close attention to this). there is a setting to control that interval in the custom setting option.
i want to say that i've seen the behavior you describe at other times (e.g., when i move between buildings at work), but i'm not 100% sure.
hth a little.

EDIT: Took it to the Sprint store trying to get a replacement and the person said that if what he tried didn't work I would have to contact Samsung for a replacement since I do not have insurance on my plan... Which is what I figured was going to happen. Anyway, what he did was update the PRL. (Home screen --> Capacitive Menu Button --> Settinsg --> About Phone (All the way at the bottom) --> System Update --> Update PRL.
This seems to have done it as ridiculous as it sounds, either that or it just magically started working, which I am okay with as long as it doesn't go haywire again...
