Windows A few days I switched back to Windows Phone 7.5 as my main smartphone operating system. Why? Well, because I can. I like to change things up every now and then, and blessed as I am with an iPhone 3GS (currently pulling duty at my best friend as her portable gaming device), Galaxy SII with CM9, and an HTC HD7, I have the luxury of doing so. Now that I'm back in the neat, tidy, and straight-lined arms of Windows Phone 7 - three long-standing issues really break the illusion, which all come from one source: the networking stack.

I don't have the HD7, but I do own the LG e900 and I'm not having the same problems you've having with that phone.

My wifi is connected pretty much all the time while under the lock screen, that or it connects quicker then I'm able to see or detect via using web browser.

The only things I can suggest is to check out the power saving options as it can turn wifi off and such while inactive. Also does the same problem persist if you use a different wifi router? I'm using a D-Link 615 with DD-WRT firmware. But I've not had any problems with BT's homehub, 2 different Netgear routers and an old Le Fonera (stock).

Also, the market place is very poor. You're best off using one of the community apps (bit of a catch 22 I know) to find the good stuff, such as Appflow.

Hopefully the price of the Xbox live games come down as well, like they have done with Angry birds but I have a feeling they'll still be at a premium.
