Wifi networks stay saved (across various SIM cards, networks, etc.)

    Hi guys,

    I hate to be the guy who says "but I'm different", but I searched the forums for accounts of a similar problem but can't nail down what my issue is.

    I travel constantly, so I don't use a home router or the same routers for long. I'm in and out of airports, hotels, cafes, etc. I use prepaid SIM cards in each new country I go to (I've been in Asia for about six months). I have trouble getting wifi on my Macbook at times, but my phone is usually responsive.

    Except that I often get messages of network "Saved" when I try to connect. Then it just sits there. Occasionally it will freeze at "Obtaining IP Address", but less often.

    I've tried forgetting the network and all that stuff. And some of the networks are open so no password to worry about.

    Is this because the network isn't working? It's odd because I'll be using the network on my laptop but it won't work on my phone.

    1.) Model Number ? Huawei G510-0200
    2.) Firmware Version ?
    3.) Baseband Version ?
    Not sure, but Android version is 4.1.1
    4.) Kernel Version ? 3.4.0-perf-gf909b4.......
    5.) Build Number ? ___________

    Welcome to the forums :)

    Not sure but it could be something with the wifi radio of the phone as well. Have you tried restarting the phone and see if that helps?

    Thanks, Argedion.

    I have tried resetting, yes. I occasionally have other small issues that I figure a reset will solve. Should I have to do it frequent, or you think it's a rare thing to have to do?

    Are you backing your data up to Google? It will save wifi information, it may be trying to 'help' you.
