    Here's a scenario.
    If say a user is logged in and is using one of those wireless 3G USB sticks out in, let's say, a park or whatever.
    Are they likely to get logged out of their session if their coverage is either disrupted, or their coverage roams/moves to another cell mast?

    This also could extend to mobile devices on 3G/EDGE or similar, even in their own home if their router packs up and they've jumped to a non-WiFi connection protocol.

    That's about as in-depth as I can explain it.
    So, what's the deal with sessions/IP?

    The session is tracked using browser cookies, which are independent of the connection.. so I don't think that would happen. Hasn't to me at least.

    iPhone has logged me out whilst out of WiFi coverage before.
    With nothing switched off, cookies ok etc.
    I started to wonder if it was just a roaming mobile thing.

    Hmm, I don't think it would be.
    Is it possible your session just expired?

    If your IP changes significantly during a session, then you will be logged out. You can work around that by checking the "remember me" box.
