    Well, I got my iPhone 4 yesterday finally (after 5.5 weeks of waiting), and now that I have it and have used most of the features, I'm just curious. When downloading from the App Store, If you are connected to a wireless network, will the download take preference from the network, or from your mobile carrier?

    (If that confuses you, maybe this will be simpler. If I am connected to a wireless network at the same time as having access through my mobile provider, will a download first check to see if I'm connected to wireless then download using that connection, or will it end up using my provider's network?)

    No, it will use your wifi connection.

    If you are connected to Wi-Fi, ALL downloads and stuff come from the Wi-Fi network. However, if you're not connected to Wi-Fi, downloads and stuff come from your carrier.
