My mum has a Galaxy III and she was able to access the internet via WiFi whilst we were down (she's on my plan).
I checked my settings, but couldn't see anything that could be changed.
I had planned to give this phone to my daughter when I upgrade (soon hopefully) so she could use it as a mini-tablet - download apps via the WiFi and check her mail....just no phone or texting services (not yet anyway).
So some people say they can do this.
Some say they can't.
I'm on Rogers Wireless.
It's an Xperia X10
It's Android 2.3.3.
Anyone have any thoughts/suggestions/info?
I am on Rogers. Xperia x10, 2.3 and I have no SIM card in my phone and I can go on WiFi even in Airplane mode.
If you can scan for Wireless networks and you see the Wifi icon appear, then wireless works.
If it can't connect to your router, restart your router....yes, even if other things connect to the router properly. Home routers are junk and sometimes they will just reject a particular device until the router is restarted....and it only takes like 30 seconds to do.
