    When I was jailbroken there was a quick widget I could put on the front page for turning wifi on and off. Is there something similar in the App Store?

    Unfortunately, no. I wish Apple would allow easier access to settings.

    I've seen one for Bluetooth, but not WiFi. I really wish they had one for WiFi; I toggle it a lot more frequently than Bluetooth.

    Can I ask why? Is it when you are somewhere that has a lot of networks available but not ones you want to connect to so you kill it to save battery?

    Nope, my reasons have nothing to do with battery life. Here are a few examples of times I toggle WiFi off or on:
    1. Nothing will load on WiFi and I want to fall back to 4G temporarily.
    2. An image or website is blocked on a WiFi network with restrictions.
    3. To do a 4G speed test.
    4. I like to go into Airplane mode when using Skype since a cellular phone call automatically ends the Skype call, and Airplane mode kills WiFi until you toggle it back on.

    Gotcha. I have some times when I do it also. Like you said when wifi won't load. When someone is driving and I'm trying to do something and the join this network keeps popping up ever two blocks.

    Just curious how do you use Skype in airplane mode. Don't you need some kind of Internet connection. I don't really use Skype so am I missing something? Airplane mode turns off cellular and wifi connections.

    I use WiFi. Airplane mode does disable WiFi, but you can toggle WiFi back on and stay in airplane mode.

    Skype on wifi is great. When Mindi is talking to me, it's as if she's right beside me whispering in my ear. It's so hot and sensual and...




    Er, never mind.

    Now now calm down and focus. I'm sure there are spammers that need to be banned. Lol
