Windows Phone 8 constant Wi-Fi connectivity coming to HTC 8S first
The result is content begins to stream using the cellular data connection instead and thus chewing through pricey data plans. That has led to a fair amount of criticism by Windows Phone users.
Windows Phone 8S by HTC. Based on image passed along to WPCentral, an HTC 8S is running a newer build of the Windows Phone 8 operating system and there we can see an option in the settings to maintain Wi-Fi connectivity if desired.
That is a positive development and will be a welcome feature to Windows Phone 8. Now, we need to wait patiently for the update to roll out to all the Windows Phone 8 devices.

Well I guess people can relax a bit now... Was a non issue for me, but could definitely see how it would bother other.

this also means that they simply made a mistake in WP 7.

This is just ridiculous not to have this feature come on just another reason why I don't consider a WP8 device

This is one of the annoying features of WP7. I own a Samsung Focus and this has made my life horrible since the day I got it. Take a hint Microsoft, just fancy live tiles don't make a good OS. Glad to see this being changed, it would be even great if Microsoft bundled this with the WP7.8 update for legacy smartphone owners.
