    Hi guys, I've had my HTC Merge for over a year but it stopped working so I got a replacement. Right off the bat I noticed that things were different on this phone, like the fact that it has a few more options for alarm sounds and ringtones, and the camera seems nicer and clearer. I checked and it says the android version is 2.3.4. But one thing really bugs me: my gallery. I can access it from the camera and go picture by picture, but I can't access it as a whole. When I click on the gallery icon it tells me "unable to connect to wifi network. This feature requires wi-fi access. Please enable wi-fi to use network media servers and players"

    .....My pictures are all from the memory card of my old phone that I put in the slot of the new phone. Why would I need wi-fi? plus I have a data plan. I can access the internet without wi-fi. does anyone know what this is all about?

    Also, as a side note, how would I be able to connect facebook to this phone without adding everyone on my friends list as contacts?

    Thank you so much if you're able to help me!

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums. You might try renaming the directory/folder where your pictures reside on your SD card to dcim. I believe, by default, the Gallery app will be looking for that folder for pictures.

    As for facebook... I believe when you first connect to facebook you are asked if you want to sync with your friends. Simply choose no.

    I hope this helps.
