I have had this problem in the past. I don't know if it's a bug or what, but when I'm connected to wifi and I check my settings to confirm that I'm definitely connected- I still sometimes get a 3G symbol. It changes randomly, I have chosen to live with it as it doesn't bother me.

It happened to me, the WiFi signal kept suddenly dropping. I showed it to the Genius' at the Apple Store and they gave me a new one.

I hardly think I need a new phone (or think they would give one) - it's probably just related to where I was at the time

I think the OP was referring to the wifi symbol disappearing, not the wifi signal actually dropping.
My symbol also used to fluctuate and then disappear and I used to get either a 3G or EDGE symbol. When I went into the WiFi Settings, it showed me as connected.
