The phone reverts to the fasted data transfer available. Since LTE is faster than my home network, it uses the LTE network. Yet it still indicates I am connected to my home network. If I turn either cellular off or just LTE, then the wifi network is used and works properly.
I called Apple and when I told the rep what I had tested, he told me I had solved my own problem and to just turn the cellular data off when I was on a WiFi network. This is an unacceptable solution!
If this is not an isolated issue, but a iOS issue, how many people are going to be presented with outrageous data plan charges because they didn't realize what was going on in time?

I was able to send some iMessages, but then a couple days later, iMessage shut itself off and everything was sent out as text messages. Had to manually reset iMessages back on. Scattered app crashes which seem to have improved with a hard reboot.

But I'm turning off apss from the multitask bar, run limited location services and on the iPhone I turn on mobile data only when I download mail or wanna surf. There is no reason to have it on if I can access email, etc. from a computer. 2G is excellent in my area so emails download quickly anyway. And I turn radios off for the night.
Trouble is people are obsessed with mpg of their cars yet use phone's resources in a non-efficient manner. I'm on 51% on the iPhone. I took it from the charger on Sunday morning.... Standby 5 days 16 hours, usage 4 hours 16 minutes.

That's a little extreme. You could also just go back to 5.1.1. At least if you get on Android you will most likely never feel this way about a system update, they rately get them...
Most of the people I know had about the same reaction when upgrading to iOS 6 : "nothing's changed". They have no more trouble than before, or no less either, and what's new, different or improved is often not obvious, i.e. most regular users didn't know what to expect - a minority of users read this kind of publication - and for them at first everything is just the same. Then, as they use it they discover little changes here and there and once in a while bigger changes. When I tell them that officially there are around 200 new features they simply don't believe me.

I would look at your router... and did you do the updates to iTunes and Lion at the same time you upgraded to iOS 6?
