    Hi there,
    I think i might have accidentally deleted a setting.
    I'm not sure if it's that or wifi just all of sudden stop working.

    I just got the phone 2 days ago. Got it connected to my wifi right away, but it just won't detect my iphone's wifi hotspot so i started playing with other setting and I think i accidentally deleted an access point name and now it won't even connect to my home network.

    every time i try to connect i will get connection unsuccessful notice.

    please help!
    this is driving me nuts...

    John

    Not familiar with how the iPhone broadcasts this but on my Desire, all I need to do is to turn on the wi-fi hotspot which will then broadcast itself as a wi-fi network. All you would need to do from your phone would be to connect to this network using any passphrase that may have been set.

    I would say that if you can now connect to your home network you should be asking this question on an iPhone forum as your Android phone appears to be behaving.
