Is there a way to have the new ipad automatically connect to Wi-Fi or AT&T depending on what is available?  For instance, I have the new ipad connected to the wi-fi in my office.  While driving to work I connect using the AT&T network.  When I walk into my office it does not automatically switch over to wi-fi.  I have to physically go into settings and turn cellular off so that it doesn't use my AT&T data while I'm in a location that can use wi-fi.  I am curious because my phone (not iphone) is connected to my wi-fi also and it automatically connects when I walk into my office so all my calls are free and then when the wi-fi signal is not in range is automatically goes back to the cellular network so I don't ever lose coverage.  Can I set up the ipad to do that?
