I've been the owner of a Pantech Breakout for almost a month now. It's my first Android phone. I love it. However, I am having problems with the phone whenever I leave my home. I have the phone connected to my WIFI at my home. When at home, it works fine. I am able to use all the apps on the phone. When I'm away from the WIFI, it doesn't always have problems. But on four separate occasions, I've been running errands and I can't get on Facebook, Foursquare, or search the internet. It shows that the phone has signal and, on one occasion, the phone was connected to free WIFI. I'm able to make and receive phone calls, text messages, and emails, but I'm not able to access apps that require internet. Please let me know if there is something I'm not doing right, or if I have some setting messed up. Thanks in advance.

You'll have this kind of issue if you have conflicting signal strength from wifi repeaters and the cell towers. It confuses the phone. It's usually best to turn off Wifi when you are out of a known wifi zone and enable it only when you are using it.
With free wifi hotspots, many times it will show you as connected but won't route you properly until you open a web browser and accept the terms of service.
My phone has been doing the same thing. I have been running JuiceDefender Ultimate, and it is running so nicely, however, recently, I have been getting the "Network Unavailable" even though my Wi-Fi is off and I have service.
Thought I would just mention I am also having the same issue. My wifi works great but when i am out of wifi my 3g or 4g connection will not activate. I have been looking for a solution all day and will let you folks know what I come up with.
OK, this is odd. I just fully charged my phone, with it off, unplugged the phone, and I restarted the phone. I didn't use the phone at all, and in a half hour, my battery said 94% (with no usage). How can that be?
My break out has same problem, but I've found that turning off and restarting usually fixed problem of "network unavailable". My problem seems to be that my phone runs battery down so fast and runs hot(105\110°). Can anyone help explain my problem and or tell me how to alleviate heat? Rooted breakout with stock ROM, but I recently changed to go launcher and go themes. I think that might be cause, but unsure. Maybe causing to much to run in background?
