windows phone 8 launch SF 005 640x424While we don’t own a Windows Phone 8 device ourselves (yet), it seems that there have been some complaints from Windows Phone 8 owners over a particular WiFi bug. This bug it seems will disable WiFi whenever the phone gets locked. Some presume it’s a way to help conserve the battery of the phone, but we can only imagine how annoying this might be while downloading or while waiting for videos to load. In any case Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore recently took to Twitter and announced that an update will be arriving soon that will fix that issue. Exactly when this update will be released remains to be seen, but for the sake of current Windows Phone 8 owners experiencing this issue, we hope it will be soon! Any WP8 owners out there experiencing this bug but managed to find a workaround? Let us know in the comments below!
