Wi-Fi does not turn on. just get "error" on rare occastion it turns on. what's the fix?
factory reset? maybe the wifi radio went out - try a replacement.
Have you tried connecting to more than one wi-fi network? Have you ever been able to connect on this phone before? How far are you from the router?
I did a factory reset twice over the course of oh about 3 weeks. it still doesn't work.
wifi radio? if i have it i don't know it.
When it turns on it connects. The problem is it doesn't turn on. doesn't seem to matter where i am.
According to tmobile tech support its a problem they've known about for weeks. they say there's no eta on a fix.
it's probably a HW issue. you'll need to do a warranty or insurance replacement
If its a known issue, that means its the software. Since all the phones run on the same software, they cant exchange because you would get a phone with the same software, hence the same potential issue. When you did a factory reset, did you remove your sd card, and make sure to leave it out and not install any apps or sign into anything but gmail for at least the time you need to try to connect to wi-fi? That can make a difference.
They walked me through the reset but didn't have me take the sd card. Are you talking about the micro sd or the other one?
I have had my G2x since May 2011. I have no problems with WiFi turning on. I think it is going to be a hardware problem. If it was a software problem everyone with a G2x would not be able to connect to WiFi.
Lucky you, Mine still doesn't work despite claims by tmobile LG fixed the problem.
I've wasted all the time i'm going to with tomobile. This phone is defective and they've admitted it.
They were so gracious as to offer me a refurbished phone if i pay the shipping. i'm not paying hundreds of dollars for a refurbished phone. that's crazy. tmobile has proven themselves to be rather dishonest.
next step, complaiint witht the state AG for deceptive trade practices.
If that doesn't get a phone that works it's off to court.
