I am on my third phone in five weeks, and am getting ready to bring this one back too. I'm a newbie when it comes to mobile phones, so I have some questions for those in the know. Let's talk WIFI. I'm not sure if Canadian routers are different in some way, but Android phones seem to have problems with the routers I've tried my phones on. My first two phones were INQ Cloudtouch, and both had the "obtaining IP address bug" that is fairly widespread. I brought both phones back to Best Buy, and the second time I decided to get a Samsung phone because I assumed that it must be a flaw with the Cloudtouch. As usual, the WIFI worked the first day. When the bug appeared on the second day of owning this phone, I nearly fell out of my chair. I've done a bit of research, and was surprised to find that this has been an issue for at least a couple years, and on many different phones. Is it impossible for Google to fix for some reason? I learnt about the workaround that involves turning off the WIFI, and connecting by starting the AllShare app. That worked for a while, but didn't last. Now when I do it, I get a different Android WIFI bug. The WIFI connects, but if I try to get online with any app I get a message that tells me I'm not connected. Looking into this new bug, I found advice that suggested I go into airplane mode to reset something. This worked... at first. It still sometimes works, but usually not. I'm at my wit's end, and don't know what the heck to do. When I traded in my second phone, I was enthused to be getting a Samsung with Gingerbread, but it looks like nothing has changed. I've searched multiple threads and articles, but it seems as if I have to root my phone in order to solve this problem. I don't consider this an option, because I don't want to void my warranty, and it seems to be something that you shouldn't do before you're pretty familiar with the tech. The fact that this problem has been ongoing for years, and continues with the new OS, suggests to me that this problem won't necessarily be fixed any time soon. I've tried WIFI Fixer, Wifi Static, WeFi, and assorted workarounds, but nothing takes care of this. It really seems like the only good answer is to root and delete/rename that file storing the IP's. On top of these problems, none of my phones have been getting strong signals. I was surprised to see other students at school with one or two more bars of WIFI than I had, and ran a test at home. In order to get full bars, I not only have to be in the same room, but I have to be within ten feet! I have the same problem at school and at home, so it definitely isn't all the router's fault in either case. Are all Android phones afflicted with these issues? Is there a possible fix that doesn't involve rooting? If not, I'm wondering if I might have to try and get out of my contract. The only non-Android phones available where I signed up are Blackberrys that are out of my price range. Would a non-availability of working phones not be grounds for voiding the contract? Thanks for any comments or advice.
