Have the EXACT same issue - very frustrated as I have moved from iphone now to this that has an issue with one of the most simple tasks of a mobile these days!
Can someone more technically minded please explain - I know this is an issue this phone has with WEP settings, and yes I could change router settings etc to connect the phone, however - what if I am at an airport, coffee shop, etc? Obviously I cannot go change their settings!
I am going to New Zealand on Thursday and it is imperative I can connect to wifis easily.
Can anyone please let me know asap please
* is this an Xperia/Sony issue? My iPhone never struggled with any settings of routers, ever, nor have any Samsungs I owned.
* Do I face the issue that if a router has WEP settings in public then I may forget connection to it??
* I might have the chance to get a Samsung S4 before I go.....should I just go for it and cut my losses with the camera?
Thank you so much in advance!
