    Try connecting without using static IP unless you are sure that the router you are connecting to does not support DHCP. A public network like an AT&T hot spot (at every McDonalds in my area) will assign your phone an IP address automatically using DHCP.

    Under Menu->Settings->Wireless & network settings->Wi-Fi settings->Menu (again)->Advanced

    Make sure that Enable auto IP and Use static IP are not checked.

    Dear Marvin,
    I am sure our access point is router and gives the IP address automatically (DHCP).
    But our phone cannot find any router without static IP; you must be set the static IP then maybe find the AP.
    Thanks

    The Backflip (US version) only supports WiFi channels 1-11. I know that outside the Us channels 12 and 13 are available. Have you checked this?
