Why does my iphone 4 keep going onto 3g btopen zone when i have a 40 meg broadband wirless network at home? I have to manually select my network in setting/ wifi networks on my iphone why?

Can i make my home network my preferred network somehow?

on the iphone, once you have selected a network, your phone should remember it for future reference, automatically connecting. unless your broadband changes addresses, there should be no reason for your phone to ask over and over again.

if you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck

The same thing happens with my iPhone. Your Homehub broadcasts two different IDs - "BTOpenzone" (or "BTFON") and "BT Hub3 xxxx" and your phone will connect to the last ID you connected to (if you used Openzone while you were out and about). Just go into Settings > Wi-Fi and then choose your homehub.

It's normal, most BT Infinity customers use Openzone as well as their home broadband - your iPhone is purely interested in the last available network.
