    So ever since Thursday my phone has been....malfunctioning, so to say. Any app that requires internet access to update itself has not been working. Android Market just says "A network error has occurred, Retry or Cancel", Phandroid App never loads, Weather app does not update, ect. I WAS rooted but i deleted z4 root and titanium backup to save space i guess. But the thing is, It works from time to time. If i keep pressing retry it rarely works, if i turn wi-fi off and then on again it sometimes works, and if i turn the phone off then on,again it sometimes works too, but then eventually it goes back to not working. Help please? :)

    If you could state whether you deleted anything, namely system apps(Google apps especially)&if you are using any task killer/& or battery saving apps,that would be a good starting point for troubleshooting.
    Thanks & please keep us posted on your progress.
    And,of course, a big welcome to the Jungle.;)

    I did not delete any Google/Metro Apps, as i referred to a list of what's safe and not safe to delete. I use Advanced Task Killer.

    Thank you for the welcome :)

    I would try running w/o ATK, at least while troubleshooting, to eliminate the possibility that it is the problem, & proceed from there.Also,if you're using an overclock/CPU app,make sure it is not dialed down too low or turn it completely off while troubleshooting as well.If you are still unrooted, you do not need to have a CPU app,as most,I believe,require 'root' access.

  5. I've been experiencing the same problem for the past few days. When connected to Wifi, any app that needs internet connection works for 5 -10 seconds and then times out. I have to retry the connection after that. Before the problem occurred it was working Very Well.

    No task killer or battery savor installed.
    I did a reboot of Metros' Stock Recovery but it didn't help.:(

    same here :(.... I have tried many things to fix it but all without luck.
    I'm starting to think this has something to do with metro. hopefully not intentionally.
    is there anyone using cricket having this problem?

    I called the metro store about this same issuse and was told that Metro was aware of it and they are working on the issue. I just recieved the Android as a gift and so far I'm not impressed. Hope Metro fix the internet/apps issues SOON!

    It does sound like a connection problem. I get the same error message when I have a similar problem but I am with Cricket and it usually corrects itself if I do the following steps:

    1. Cear my cache

    2. Clear The Market cache and data

    3. Turn my phone off and back on

    If you continue to have probs....take the battery out and leave it out for 5 minutes and then put it back in and reboot.

    This can help in many other situations as well.

    Good luck! Hope Metro gets things fixed soon.

  10. If your on Metro it is a known issue. It sucks because I just got my ascend right before this started happening (Thursday night) I have been patiently waiting for them to fix it because I want my apps to work. They work over wifi just not on 1x. The only thing I can get to work when not on wifi is the browser (Metroweb and Skyfire)
