    I know it happens, the update yesterday got mine... Just wondering why this seems to happen?

    Could it be because my phone is sim locked to Orange, does that mean that I will always need to use a gold card, or will unlocking the phone from Orange solve these update wifi issues?

    Bump.

    There must be someone who has unbranded and unlocked their phone on here who can report if they have wifi issues after this recent update?

    Take a deep breath and relax, no need to bump :D

    Have you debranded your phone? If so did you not put the goldcard in when you updated?

    Seems the people with issues did not use their goldcard.

    I put mine in, updated easily and the update works perfectly.

    logically just make your current sd card, a goldcard.

    Im looking at that for the short term... Its just as a long term read "when/if I sell it I want it to just work".

    I have asked the same question before too and i'd also like to know why does it happen? If you have unbranded and unlocked your phone, doesnt it become like a vanilla handset? Why does it still mess up?

    I can only guess that once you have gold carded the phone it becomes dependant on those settings, without them on install it installs wrong... I guess some of the XDA routing team (who probably cooked up the gold card?) might know what the crack is with all this.

    A shame that we are now dependant on the gold card... but itll be alright.
