This is driving me nuts. Every time i lock the phone, wi-fi is shut off and then reconnects when the screen is unlocked, for people who are cheap like me (on the 200 MB data plan) its worries me that any time my phone isnt on its using the network. ARG Other than that i FREAKING LOVE THIS PHONE !

I hadn't noticed that yet, I'll check it out when I get home. My last phone would lose the wifi connection when I left my house (as it should), but when I came back it would fail to connect and I wouldn't notice until several minutes of 3G data had gone by - so far the focus seems to be doing much better, though I had to set DHCP back on my router because I couldn't figure out how to assign a static ip address in the phone's wifi settings.

The thing that makes me question if the reciever stays on, is my data usage is 10 MB of 3G, the thing is, I am NEVER off wi-fi, ever. So the only thing i can think of is when the screen is locked it actually KILLS wi-fi and defaults to 3G, charging me data.

I'm also annoyed by this behavior and I also have the 200mb plan (the ATT store rep tried as hard as she could to make me the get 2gb but I wasn't going for it. I responded to her ATT-endorsed schpiel with a lecture of my own and stood my ground). Anyways, here's what I do: Settings>Cellular>Turn Off Data Connection. I turn it back on when I don't have access to any wifi networks and NEED to use data for whatever reason.
