    I'm having to move networks from Virgin back to o2.

    I'll be returning the Virgin Desire and just received the o2 Desire today.

    Setting it up went well, accounts added etc. but I'm having trouble with the WiFi - I can't disable it, every time I do it switches itself back on - I'm assuming that's something to do with the o2 firmware and it wouldn't be a big deal if the WiFi worked properly

    I set it to install all my apps, but wouldn't over Wifi, only over 3G, I can't browse the internet or check for software updates in settings... I've got 2 email accounts set up - Gmail & Exchange (just as I did on the other handset), and it's just told me it can't sync to the Exchange server now though it seems to have been fine so far...

    Yet I've just sent myself a test email over WiFi successfully - it appeared straight away in the webmail and then back on the handset, so some part of it's working...

    Can anyone suggest what may be going wrong? I've only installed the apps I've got on the other desire, so there shouldn't be much different other than the Virgin/o2 variant firmware...

    Did/do you have wifi analyzer installed?

    Mine did that until I checked an option to rekill wifi when it wasnt open.

    I realised whilst watching TV in bed later that it could be the Setting Profile app - I'd set it to switch the WiFi on in the general profile, so changed that setting and could successfully switch it off...

    That didn't solve the issue with the dodgy WiFi connection though, it was very poor where it has been reasonable on the Virgin Desire...

    At least I'm getting a signal at home now I'm back on o2 though! :-D
