HTC Incredible :: Phone Switched To Wifi In A Wifi Spot / Can Use?

Jun 19, 2010

I have read all I can about using the Inc overseas and am confused. If the phone is switched to WiFi in a WiFi spot, can you use the phone? I have read that Verizon put some sort of restrictions on it, but I'm not savvy enough to understand it all. My daughter is in the Coast Guard and we both have DInc's. She goes to places like Star Bucks in other countries that offers WiFi and we would LOVE to be able to text each other with our phones. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

HTC Incredible :: Phone Can't Find TP2 Wifi Hot Spot / Get It?

May 5, 2010

Just wondering why my Incredible can't find my TP2's wifi hot spot. I'm at work, and it found three secured networks near me (to which I don't have the PW of course), but it never picked up on my TP2 although they were less than a foot apart from each other. So I added the TP2 network via the add function, and it said my TP2 network was out of range. My work laptop was able to connect to the TP2 (even through VPN) with no problem.

Android :: WiFi Hot Spot On 2.2?

Aug 31, 2010

if I read this correctly, with 2.2 Android OS we have capability to turn our phones into WiFi hotspot, but it come at cost from Verizon. I already pay $45 for corporate unlimited data usage, paying anything extra on top of that for the times when I use my phone as hot spot just seems ridicules.
Isn't there any apps or ways to avoid the extra gridy charge from Verizon for the WiFi hotspot usage?

Motorola Droid :: Froyo Wifi Hot Spot / Tethering On Verizon

Aug 3, 2010

As you've heard, Verizon confirmed they will not support the wifi hotspot nor the tethering features on the original Droid. They claimed it's for technical reasons.Since everyone on the technical community agrees that it is not true, is there something we can do to catch the attention of Verizon and convince them to enable those features?A mass email? A petition?

Jelly Bean :: Android 4.3 - Restricted Profiles - Disable WiFi Entirely / Turn Off WiFi

Sep 24, 2013

I don't own an Android 4.3 tablet yet but I need to know the following things.I wanted to restrict my device so that a user is unable to change any settings (in particular turn on/off WiFi) and disable all applications except one.How strict is the restriction?

If I disable all apps except one what will the restricted user be able to do?

In an ideal scenario I'd like the restricted user to do only 3 things:

a) turn the tablet on/off

b) turn the application of my choosing on/off

c) all other options would be disabled

d) the restricted user should NOT see any data of the administrator

HTC Droid Eris :: Wifi Won't Reconnect Automatically When In Range Or By Enabling Wifi

Sep 8, 2010

It's done this twice now (before and after factory reset). 2.1 OTA, not rooted.

Whenever I turn on the wifi, or I become in range of my WPA2 network, it doesn't always connect. I say "always" because it seems to be random. If I toggle wifi on or off, it doesn't always connect. Sometimes it connects after 30+ seconds. Every other device connects just fine.

The only sure way to get it to connect is to force it to rescan, usually by going to Settings and displaying all SSIDs in range. THEN it connects, always and immediately.

The even sillier thing is, it will alert me of open networks, but never connect to my own saved network.

HTC Hero :: Wifi App Takes Long Time To Connect To Home Wifi

Dec 29, 2009

My Hero takes a long time to connect to my home wifi. I usually go in to the settings and hit "Scan" repeatedly before it connects. Sometimes it fails connect, and I have to go into Settings to try again. Is there a way/app to scan automatically or re-attempt to connect again? Maybe there's something I'm not thinking of?

HTC Desire :: WiFi Connection Not Working After Using WiFi Hotspot?

Oct 8, 2010

I decided to try the WiFi hotspot available through 2.2. GREAT! Actually worked quite a bit better than I thought it would. Only trouble is, ... now I'm back at home, it fails to connect to the home network.

+ Restarting phone
+ Re-entering password
+ Forgetting network + refinding

WiFi sees the network, says "Connecting", comes up "Failed to connect", "Scanning" and loops on that sequence. I know the router's working because this laptop is using it right now

HTC Incredible :: WiFi Vs 3G

Sep 23, 2010

Based upon reading through this message board I was convinced that turning on Wifi and leaving it connected I would get better battery life. After a few days of trying this I can say "FALSE". My battery life has been greatly affected. This is with my normal use. No more use than usual. I read that having it connected to wifi prevents the phone from constantly searching for 3G. Under battery and use the wifi has been using 25% of my battery. I am going back to leaving the 3G on.

HTC Incredible :: Can't Connect To WiFi

Jul 31, 2010

I cannot connect to the wifi network in my house. I can easily connect to the wifi at my work when I type in the password, but when I try the WEP key at my house it still says disconnected. It shows my network and says "Remembered, secured with WEP" if I hit connect nothing happens. I tried "forget" and then connecting again, making sure my wep key is correct, and still no luck.

HTC Incredible :: Froyo WiFi

Sep 6, 2010

Developed a problem holding onto a WiFi signal after the Froyo update. After Froyo, I was getting a good connection intermittently, sometimes for only a few seconds before it was lost--the phone was switching to 3G and then back again, over and over. This disrupted downloads, browser connections, etc. I'm using an Airlink101 wireless-N router on the Comcast network.

I changed the router settings from G+N to N only. No more disconnects. Seems that the two protocols were conflicting with each other--fighting for a connection to my phone. My connection speeds went way up immediately (12-13 MPS download/3+ MPS upload). My wife has an Eris that does not have wireless-N capability (only G). I set up a secondary channel for wireless-G and gave it a different SSID name. This did not conflict with my phone--I didn't manually set up the login for that channel so it's just being ignored by the DInc.

Not sure if this is necessary for some wireless-N routers but it definitely worked (so far) for the Airlink.
