Default Netflix won't work???

I'd love to have Netflix on my phone, but it only works on 3g, and everyone with Metro knows their 3g is god awful. It takes 3 minutes just to get my Instant Queue loaded!! I have no idea what the problem is. When I'm on wifi, I can't get past the login screen (also I can't login into Facebook when an app asks me too unless I'm on 3g, but I'm not too worried about that problem). I tried rooting it, and removing Easy Wifi, but that didn't work. If anyone can suggest a fix for this problem that would be fantastic

Does that matter? I'd think it'd only effect the 3g reception.....not what wifi can or can't do..

Yeah, I live in the same area. I've cleared the data and reinstalled numerous times before.

I had your problem freezes after a minute if that. I searched for older versions and had the best luck with ver.1.5 no freezing or sound out of sync. I haven't checked any new updates since oct 2012 but I don't update automatically anymore because of this problem. If it ain't broken don't fixit unless it's to add new features or like that.

PLEASE post a link with that version! I can't find older versions, had auto- update on, and shitflix hasn't worked for me in over a year. A link with a working version would be DOPE!

I did, found it, installed it, and when I launched it, it wouldn't give me the option to continue onto the next screen w/o updating. Major crap. I've officially given up on that app.

Sorry to mention, DO NOT UPDATE, that screen goes away if declined. Unfortunately you must do it every time you start it. But it does work and without any sync problems.
