Could be because Connectify is only supporting Ad-Hoc mode WiFi and not Infrastructure mode. There are a few phones and devices that can't connect and/or have difficulty with Ad-Hoc mode.

Infrasctructure mode is normally what a real WiFi router provides.
Ad-Hoc mode is usually created on a PC using software like Connectify, to share a single internet connection with other WiFi devices.
