Is the 3G connection being used when wifi is on? I would have thought wifi would take precedence.

No. In most situations WiFi is used, however I believe some apps are hardcoded to use 3g only.

Not to mention if there is a 3g signal voice calls go over that too.

i thought voice calls only needed a basic GSM signal to work? using 3g takes alot more battery than mantaining a link to the cellular network, i think it makes the radio transmit at a different frequency and stuff

Yes they can still go over 2g GSM, but most networks that support 3G have voice calls go over 3g for better quality. So, if your phone is getting a 3G signal your voice calls are most like going over 3G. If you're only getting a GPRS / EDGE signal then its going over 2G.

The main reason for wanting to do this was to save battery, I will just have to do it manualy
