After having my phone replaced about two weeks ago and getting the OTA update I am still having issues that I think I should not have.
I have been on the road staying at a hotel that provides free wifi. Before accessing the network, one needs to enter a key into the first webpage that shows up.
So, I get back from work and get on the hotel wifi. At the same time I also have about 58% signal strength from 3G.
At one point or another the internet connection times out at the hotel but I am still connected to the wifi network.
When that happens (I never know what) I have absolutely ZERO data connectivity on my phone, even though I have good 3G signal.
emails don't come in, heytell and whatsapp messages don't come in at all. Facebook doesn't connect, nor do any other apps that require a data connection. I do get text messages and phone calls however.
In order to get data back, I have to turn off wifi. At that point 3G kicks in again and I get a bunch of messages that have accumulated since I lost internet connectivity through the wifi network.
The same thing happens when I connect to any other wifi network and leave that network. The phone seems to keep looking for the wifi signal and refuses to switch to 3G when there isn't a wifi anymore.
I had NEVER experienced anything like this with my OG Evo or any other phone.
They can't expect me to constantly monitor my wifi connection and turn it off or on.
I contacted HTC about this but after several swift replies from them they escalated the issue but I haven't heard from them ever since.
This is the second phone that I got that does this and I don't think I am alone with this issue.
I tried all those settings that are posted around here but I seriously need the setting that says " Use ANY data connection available, NOT just wifi"
I'm open to try any suggestions.
