So I just spend 300 dollars on something that has essentially become my old phone, which I paid 35 for. My BRAND NEW Galaxy s3 from virgin mobile is trapped in this vicious cycle of "obtaining IP address", "internet connection is not stable", and no wifi at all, eating up my data. seeing that this is a common issue with android devices, I did some digging and found the common static IP solution, which I used, and that got me from stagnantly being in the "obtaining IP address" phase, into the other two. Funnily enough, it only moves to stage two when I visit the google play store. Factory reset has to be my last resort, but if all else fails that is where I will go. please help. I have downloaded WiFix and attempted at the manual reset, but to no avail.
