Question Can't connect to wifi

Hello, I bought used 8800pro, the seller told me that he upgrade it to version 2.35 but he is not sure if he did it correct...When check the phone was working and all was fine, but I did not check wifi. At home whenever I try to connect to wifi it shows : fail. It does not show list of net at all. I even restore factory , but nothing is helping. I can connect to internet by the local GSM supplier. Do I have to reinstall android and maybe straight to 4.0 icecream version? if yes, how to do it? Thank!

Hi Menymo, I would suggest you check with the supplier whether he used the correct Upgrade. ie; U8800Pro upgrade.
You have to be very careful when selecting the upgrades from Huawei to ensure you get the correct one. Cheers Neil.

Hi, thanks you for the answer. The question is what to do now in such case? To reinstall OS? In general when doing upgrade, how to know which is the correct version?

Hi Menymo, This should be the Software to Download for the U8800Pro:
HUAWEI Ideos firmware(U8800Pro,Android 2.3,V100R001C00B521,Oversea Normal)

V100R001C00B521|2012-07-03|206.58MB


If you go to this link:Downloads - Huawei Device Co., Ltd..


Find by Product > Smartphones > Model > Third down list (
HUAWEI Ideos firmware(U8800Pro,Android 2.3,V100R001C00B521,Oversea Normal)



If you Download to Desktop and > Open > Explore > locate Huawei Software upgrade (Adobe Acrobat Reader) > Open this and you can print a copy of the instructions.
Just follow the instructions to the letter and it's upgraded your phone to V2.3.
ICS V4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) will require the phone to be Rooted.
You can't go to ICS without doing the above Software Upgrade. Cheers Neil.

Hi Menymo, Just some more info re-connecting to Wifi. This is from the u8800 X5 User Manual.

7 Getting Connected
7.1 GPRS/3G
Your mobile phone will be automatically configured to use your wireless service provider’s GPRS/3G/EDGE service (if available) when you turn on the phone for the first time. Note that the SIM card must be inserted.
7.1.1 Checking the Network Connection
1. Touch > Settings.
2. Touch Wireless & networks > Mobile networks.
3. Touch Operator Selection or Access Point Names to check the network
connection. Your mobile phone will automatically read the access point of the SIM card. For this reason, do not change the parameters of the access point; otherwise, you might not be able to access network sources.
7.1.2 Turning on the Data Service
1. Touch > Settings.
2. Touch Wireless & networks > Mobile networks.
3. Select the Data enabled check box to turn on the data connection.
7.2 Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi gives you wireless access to broadband Internet access. To use Wi-Fi on your mobile phone, you need to have an access to wireless access points (hotspots).
Obstacles that block the Wi-Fi signal will reduce its strength.

7.2.1 Turning On Wi-Fi
1. Touch > Settings.
2. Touch Wireless & networks, and then select the Wi-Fi check box to turn on Wi-Fi.
7.2.2 Connecting to a Wireless Network
1. After turning on Wi-Fi, touch > Settings.
2. Touch Wireless & networks > Wi-Fi settings. You will see a list of detected Wi-Fi networks in the Wi-Fi networks section.
3. Touch a Wi-Fi network to connect to it.
• If you select an open network, you will be automatically connected to the network.
• If you select a network that is secured with Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and connect to it for the first time, enter the password, and then touch Connect.
If you connect to a secured wireless network that you have already used, you will not be prompted to enter the password again unless you reset your mobile phone to its default settings.
On the Wi-Fi settings screen, touch Add Wi-Fi network to add a new Wi-Fi
network.

Hopes this helps you to get connected. Neil.
ps. Make sure you have adequate credit in your Telco account or Pre-Pay.

Hi Neil, you won't belive it...I received the new Sony xperia J yestreday evening, I went home, turn it on and start following the setup guide...while doing it after about 3 minutes the phone shuts down and whatever I did, it did not turn on again...I went on same evening to the service - and imagine - the technician said that the phone is dead and I will have to come next week and get another phone... By the way when I was following the setup guide I had inside the sony SD micro card of 1 GB that I took from my old samsung U600 in order to check how it working with music, is this can be the reason for the failure of the sony? ..and last question....I have few SD micro cards of 1GB, that i used before on Nokia and samsung. Can i use them with other OS such android or need to format them before using? Can I use SD card or I must use SDHC card only? thanks, Meny

Hi Menymo, you're having bad luck with phones. I hope your Techo supplies you with a good phone next week.

In answer to your question regarding Micro SD card inserted in the phone - I don't see any reason why it would cause the phone to pack up. The only way to insert the Micro SD / SDHC card is to switch off the phone before installing.
If you inserted the card when the phone was switched on - there is a chance the info on the card would be wiped or a load surge could shut the phone down.

Micro SD cards can usually be inter-changed between phones without problem. The Android system works on Linux so they should be compatible.

If you want to Format your cards, it's better to do so with the card in the phone > Scroll through the Settings > Memory (or SD card) > Options > Locate Format and click to select.
On my Huawei U8800, I Dial *#*#2846759#*#* > ProjectMenu > Background Setting > and #7 SD card > Format SD card.

You can Format the SD card in your computer, but best advice is to Format in the phone.
You would only want to Format the card to get the full capacity as you would lose all Data or Media stored on the card.

Hope this is what you needed to know. Best of luck when you get your new phone. Neil.

Hi Menymo, Thanks for Xmas wishes. We look forward to plenty of sunshine and fine weather at this time of the year. Having said that, today is overcast and damp and there are disruptions to air travel from poor visibility.
We are also getting prepared for Cyclone Evan which has devastated Samoa and done considerable damage in Fiji.
Local news (radio) tells us the cyclone is heading for New Zealand and we don't really need one for Xmas.
I hope New Year brings you more luck with cell phones. Cheers. Neil.

Hello again... I received new xperia J that replace the one that worked 3 minutes before dying... I know you answer about u8800 but I have general question. I tried to download theme for the xperia, since in the phone the are only one theme in few colors, in few sites but it was impossible to download it to the phone. So, I download it to my pc. The question is to what folder in the phone I have to copy this themes and how to find them in the phone and install them. Thanks. Meny (my name is Meny menymo is just my user name).

Hi Meny, I hope your new phone is trouble free.
In anaswer to your questions, Download your Themes to your Desktop in your computer.
Connect your phone via the USB cable to your computer. (Refer to my earlier Post about correct ways to connect and disconnect your phone to a computer).
If you have Windows Vista/W7/W8 OS on your computer, it should recognize and load the Drivers (ADB) and a message will appear on the phone screen saying USB connected.
Touch Turn on USB Storage on the phone screen to confirm you want to transfer files.
You can now transfer files to your phone - Right click on your Desktop Themes Download > Send to (your SD card is shown as Mobile Disc with an Alpha reference eg, F,G, or H.)
The Themes should be on the SD card after transfer.
Follow the procedure to disconnect correctly from the computer. Open Notifications panel (Top of phone screen) and Turn Off USB Storage. (you will need to close all Windows screens on your comp) and use the Icon in the lower Right of the Taskbar to Safely Disconnect.

You should have a File Manager App in your phone. I use Astro File Manager (Google Playstore) it's free and the file manager will enable you to Open Themes and send to phone screen.

I trust this helps you to get your new Themes showing on the phone screen. Merry Xmas. Neil.
