no wifi, phone driving me CRAZY! Need help please..
Here's the problem. When I go to activate the wifi through comm manager, the button turns off, sometimes it hangs (clock showing) for 6 seconds, sometimes pressing over and over it will not turn. it will turn on for a .5 sec then go right off. At the times when it does turn on, the button below (GPRS or data..I think) will come on as well. There's a big "E" with the signal to the right, and then the little "e" on the top of the today screen will start bugging out with 2 small arrows on it I guess searching for a gprs connection..and a message saying the following:"connecting to media.net" or "connecting to att isp GPRS, connecting to ATT 3g" and "wap.cingular..cannot connect for unknown reason..yada yada yada" the popup messages drive me crazy I want to smash the phone to the floor. but no wifi.
My account has neither gprs or 3G and i'm sick and tired of it searching for it. I click the dismiss/hide button but it just comes right back on bombarding me with these popup messages over and over. Once in a while it will turn on but for a short time to the point it won't connect to the wifi spot, and over and over we go. Skyfire gives me "can't connect to server", and opera comes up, but by the time it does, the wifi button turn off. It's not even getting to the point of connecting to the coffee place. why is it looking for GPRS when all I want is free wifi? All I want to do is check my email once in a while. I live overseas by the way. I did do a clean restart many times but it doesn't fix the problem. I won't flash a new rom as I'm a bit worried so please to offer/recommend. The phone never fell to the floor so I don't think it's the issue. Anyway to configure it to stop searching for GPRS/3G? maybe I did something wrong in the kaiser tweak settings..?
This is an att phone ROM 1.57.502.2 ROM date 8/25/07 RADIO 18.104.22.168
I've had the phone for about 2 years and the last 8 months or so it's given me the problems listed. I never took the time to deal with it, but I'm just fed up to the point I will never buy an HTC device again if I can't solve the problem.
any help appreciated..
BTW, on the right side of the phone the crack (between the screen and keyboard) is unusually large and has some play to it. Even though I hardly ever use the
Also, nice look to the forum. A much needed overhaul IMO.
