Have no idea why does it using both. 

 

Situation. I leave my phone on my desk (doing ntg), then i realized it is constantly connected to my WIFI and 3G.

 

Have change the WLAN setting to - Ask when needed

Does Nokia have any apps to control whether to use WIFI / 3G during my FB/Whatsapp/Internet Surfing?

Re: Asha 302 - how to identify WIFI or 3G

Whatsapp is one application that will always remain connected to Internet ...Actually a few applications have the option for selecting the Access Point..On the other hand on your Phone; you should be able to select the Priority of the Access Point (..this will determine which type of connection to be used in case BOTH are available..)..but no idea why BOTH are being connected at the same time ...
