On the 8X, there is a setting in WiFi settings. You have to tap Advanced and then you can keep WiFi on when the screen turns off. Mind you, that only came with the new update - so I'm not 100% sure with different phones.

i have a lumia 920 ( and my wife 800). On my 920 i got a new update and one of the things that is added now is to Activate 7 Deactivate this very same thing you said about wifi and locking. before the update my 920 was acting like yours. It used to kill sifi connection everytime the phone was locked. After this new update I can disable it so that the wifi stays on when the phone is locked.
First I liked it. I said this is cool . I unlock the phone and immidiately I am in internet and I would not have to wait those few seconds for the wifi to come back. But after few days I again turned it off and now the phone is just like before. Wifi dies everytime the phone is locked. Why? because the battery started to die MUCH FASTER with this new option.
Well, its me. I would prefer to wait few seconds until the wifi is back everytime I unlock the phone rather than letting the battery dies whole faster.

This is the stock way a Lumia 800 (and generally any other WP 7.x device) works. I've even talked with Nokia directly on this one, and it isn't fixed in 7.8 from what I can tell.

Does anyone know how you can turn off the vibrate when you hit the capacitive buttons on the bottom?By acousticpoem in forum Nokia Lumia 820Replies: 6Last Post: 07-11-2013, 02:36 PM
