    Wi-Fi dropping off

    Noticed that after the update to 5.1 my Wi-Fi drops out and I go back to 3G if I let my phone sleep for an extended period of time. Anyone else having that problem?

    The iPhone will always break the connection to Wi-Fi unless plugged in to a power source.
    This is to conserve battery life.
    Has it only happened since updating?

    Yeah, I knew about that but once I unlocked it it would pick up signal again. Now I have to go and turn it off and back on again. And yes just since the new update. I also did the update via iTunes and not OTA since I wanted to back up some purchased apps.

    Is it still under warranty? Maybe a trip to Apple.

    I always keep 3G off when I'm at home and connected to wifi.

    The wifi icon won't show until I wake the phone, but will always receive notifications w/ data off and in sleep mode.

    Maybe that's just how iOS 5.1 is suppose to be?

    Same here. Battery saver.
    You still get all your notifications on home Wi-Fi so no big deal.

    Having same issue wifi connection drops after a while when phone is asleep, and it is worse for me because in this area where my office is I get horrid service. My battery life goes wayyyyyy down because I am roaming trying to look for data service. Is there anyway to make it stay on wifi because for me at least it is not a battery saver it is a killer. I have tested cutting off data while at work and just staying on wifi and that makes it stay of wifi and battery life is amazing, so that proves to me atleast that this is an issue.

    any thoughts?

    The only way to make a phone stay on wifi is for it to be connected to a decently strong wifi network.

    I don't really think its an issue. That's just how it is.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Well I wish there was a option to change that feature, because at least in my case it is not helping to disconnect and go back to data. I was thinking it may be an issue because I believe it also happens on my home network when I am sitting almost beside the router. I will report back if I see it happening on my home network too.

    thanks all!

    So you are saying that even at home beside your router the wifi will disconnect until you open Settings> Wifi and connect to it again?

    Or is it disconnecting from Wifi while asleep and does not connect again until you wake the phone?
