IPhone :: Wi-Fi Can Stay Connected While On Standby

I work in a place where there is zero AT&T reception, but WiFi coverage in 100% of the area. I just read that iOS4 will allow WiFi to stay connected even when the device is in standby,, IS THIS TRUE?!And if so, could I just get a skype landline number, stay connected to WiFi, and use my iPhone 4 at work through Skype?

IPhone :: How Long Do Apps Stay In Memory For (on Standby)?
I ask as my iPhone 4 has the bad habit of often hanging when i close apps down. Sometimes even crashing the handset. I turned my phone off for a couple of minutes earlier to give my phone a break and to clear any 'rogue' apps that might been running in the background.When I turned the handset back on I brought up the 'multitasking' screen to find apps in the background. Strange. I would have thought that turning it off would have refreshed the memory?just noticed that the clipboard contents that were copied were also retained in memory too. Anyone else having this?

m y phone doesn't stay connected to the sprint 3g network in a well covered 3g area. and nomatter where i am, if it does connect to 3g, it's extremely slow. i took it to the apple store, and they reinstalled the firmware and os. i also did a sprint service update, but it still didn't work. most times it takes 20 mins to dl an app, and up to 10 mins to load a 1 min video on Internet... i know the sprint service is a little slower than the at&t i'm used to, but this can't be right...

IPhone :: Wifi Won't Stay Connected?
Upgraded to iOS 5.1.1 on my Verizon iPhone 4s and am now having trouble connecting (and staying connected) to WiFi via a NETGEAR router. My wife's iPhone 4 and iPad (newest model) do not have the same problem as we have not upgraded to the latest software on them.

IPhone :: 4S Won't Stay Connected To Wifi?
Since it was new and running iOS 5.0.1, my 4S hasn't wanted to stay connected to wifi. When I enable wifi in the settings menu, it has no problem finding wifi networks, but when it goes to join them, it can take upwards of 45 seconds to actually connect. Once it connects, it functions perfectly fine using wifi up until the phone gets locked. After locking the phone, it loses its wifi connection and will not reconnect on its own, whereas most iPhones will grab the wifi connection again automatically within a second of unlocking the phone. I've tried using this phone on multiple wifi networks, including an unsecured network, a WPA2 network, and multiple public wifi hotspots, so I think I can rule out any router setup issues. I've done a full restore of the phone, I tried resetting the network settings, and I upgraded to iOS 5.1.1, all to no avail. Is there anything else I can try, or is it safe to call that this is a hardware issue that needs to be resolved at the Genius Bar?

IPhone :: Won't Stay Connected To Wifi
i will connect to wifi, and everything will be ok when im on the phone. but when i lock it and set it down for awhile then go to unlock it the 3G is there and not the wifi symbol. i am wanting to know why that is. it hasn't done it before until now. i recenlty restored my phone because of some other issues my phone was having. those issues are fixed as far as i can tell. but this issue has just appeared. i have also been away from home so i am not on my home wifi, i am on my friends wifi. i feel as if my phone doing this that it is killing my battery alot faster then it should.

IPhone :: 4 Wont Stay Connected To Wifi
I have 2 iphone 4 both have the same problem. they wont reconnect to the wifi router even thought the icon on the phone shows that it is connected.

I check the router info, it shows that about 1 min of wifi inactivity, the iphone drops connection and wont reconnect. I have to turn the wifi off then on to get connected again. looks like the same issue Jobs had on the keynote stage.

IPhone :: Will Not Stay Connected Invalid Response Received From Device
I have an older iPhone (8gb) and for some reason whenever I plug it into the usb port on my computer it will not stay connected whatsoever. Itunes freaks out, it'll come up for a little bit and then just as soon as it appeared, 'Josh's iPhone' disappears. When I say "won't stay connected" I mean you'll hear the "new usb device" sound over and over again continuously and the iPhone goes crazy too. Like it's connected, disconnecting, connecting, disconnecting, etc.. The error I get during all this madness is "itunes could not connect iPhone because it received an invalid response from the device."I've used this ( ) link to no avail (yet.) I am about to restart my computer right now. If it works after that I'll just simply delete this post. But anyway it's in a usb 2.0, it's plugged directly into the computer, etc etc

IPhone :: 3.0 OS Upgrade / WiFi And Exchange Server Not Stay Connected
1) Since I have upgraded my Iphone 3G from 2.1.1 OS to 3.0 OS, my WiFi connection won't stay connected. I have to keep re-entering my WEP or Password code for my WiFi connection. This happens everytime after the phone goes into sleep mode.
2) Since I have upgraded to 3.0 OS, the phone won't stay connected to my Exchange Server for downloading email from corporate server. Have to re-enter Password every time in order to down load email.

Any one else having these problems since upgrading IPhone 3G to 3.0 OS?

BB Accessories :: Headset Won't Stay Connected?
I cannot get any bluetooth headset to stay connected to my phone. I don't have a problem pairing them, just getting them to stay connected long enough to do anything.

I currently have my Nuvi 660 and my motorola H700 headset paired to my phone. Either will connect initially, but then go into a state where they keep disconnecting and reconnecting.

My device is a Blackberry Bold 9650 and is running OS version 6.0 bundle 2333. (I have had this problem since version 4 however.)

I have Bluetooth turned on, and both devices are set to trusted. I do not have both devices running at the same time, so crosstalk is not an issue. Range between the phone ond the device is typically less than 3 or 4 feet with nothing in between them. I've tried about everything I can think of with the options on the devices and the phone and still am having the same issue.

BB Pearl :: Bluetooth Won't Stay Connected?
I have an 8220 pearl flip and until last week my bluetooth worked fine; then it lost connectivity. I've taken the battery out and put it back. I've downloaded the latest software. I've checked bluetooth in manage connections and it stays checked for about three seconds and then disappears. I've tried pairing in settings and it just says bluetooth disabled. I took it to the T-mobile store and they just tried to sell me a new phone. Nothing seems to work.

LG :: GBU221 Bluetooth BTDiag Will Not Stay Connected
I have a Iogear GBU221 USB bluetooth adapter, and an LG VX8700 phone and an LG VX9900 (Env) phone.I am familiar with how to use bitpim and the virtual serial/com port on the BT adapter, however...I can't get the BTDiag to stay connected.On the 8700, I can transfer one song/file/picture at a time IF I'm quick enough, but then the BTDiag connection drops at about 30-45 seconds and I have to reconnect and do each transfer one at a time. So at least this phone works somewhat. However I would like to not have to do the whole dance around the pole and do transfers one file at a time. Ringtones and pictures aren't that big of a deal as far as sending, but when receiving, it won't stay long enough to do a full receive, not even one folder at a time.

However...the 9900 (Env) won't even stay connected long enough to send not even one file/ringtone, etc...let alone receive anything to the computer cause it has to pull the whole folder contents from the phone to complete the transfer. But anyway...I connect the BTDiag...jump over to Bitpim like dancing on hot coals and start to send a ringtone and just as it gets close to the end of the transfer it hangs and then a popup dialog comes up that says (can't remember the whole error verbatim) something about it can't manipulate the file system on the phone, and voila...the BTDiag then disconnects.

I contacted Iogear about this problem, and they said that I "probably" have to connect the phone via usb cable and let the computer recognize it that way, and then proceed with the bluetooth method. Well that is the stupidest thing I've ever heard of...why would I buy the cable if I have the bluetooth dongle, or vice versa. And furthermore...why would the phone have the BTDiag service on it if they didn't intend or want you to use it.So is there some kind of fix to this issue, or am I simply missing something here??

Xperia X10 :: My Mini Pro WiFi Cannot Stay Connected
My new mini pro wi-fi will not stay connected. I have made sure the WEP key is correct, and the signal is strong throughout the house. No probs with the 3 laptops we use. Even sitting with the livebox on my lap the phone connects and disconnects a few seconds later. This means I am using the 2+3G connection at home.....using valuable 'Fair Use' megs up.

Motorola Motocast :: PC Won't Stay In Connected Status
I have a Droid 4 for my phone, my computer is a desktop running Windows 7 64 bit ultimate. I've tried to connect to MotoCast both wirelessly and with the USB cable. I Uninstalled it and redownloaded it. The part on my computer refuses to stay online, even when I am in MyMotoCast browsing through the files! I have all the settings allowed, it's on a clear port.I gave up and removed my SD card and manually loaded movies and music onto the card, and popped it back into the phone, it was much quicker than waiting on MotoCast's 10 seconds of connect time every time I reset it.

I also find that trying to rearrange a playlist gets buggy after a couple songs. Why is it designed to rewritethe whole 5(ish)kb that is the song to a new location rather than just relink to it? For every OTHER application, a playlist is a series of links that point to your songs. What it is NOT is a physical arrangement of those songs. Why is my phone's playlist a physical arrangement of those songs?

BB Torch :: 9800 Won't Stay Connected To Wireless Network
I am having severe problems with my bb torch 9800, it wont stay connected to the wireless network for any length of time before I have to register it again, this is happening daily now realised it was doing this when i try and send information over my wifi and it would connect to it but would not send any data, and comes up with a message stating I am not connected to the wireless network. As said before the way I could get it to work temporary is by going to, options, device, advanced system settings, host routing table, and the pressing the bb key and selecting register now. This has only started happening since updating my torch.

BB Bold :: 9900 Will Not Stay Connected To Virgin Media?
I have just upgraded to a 9900 Bold and am experiencing problems staying connected to my wireless network at home. Basically I added the wifi profile and it connected fine then after a while it loses the connection and when I try to reconnect it says failed to authenticate against the network. I tried rebooting my wireless router (Netgear Super Hub from virgin media) and it connects again only for the same thing to happen again after 20 mins. It used to work fine with my old 9700 bold.

Motorola Atrix 2 :: WIFI Network Won'tn Stay Connected
My wife and I have identical ATRIX 2 phones just over a year old. Always has been some strange things happening staying connected to wifi network but that finally corrected itself on both phones

After ICS update in November i have to toggle Airplane mode on and off to get wifi connection back after a period of not useing it on my phone .

My wife was reluctant to update hers when I did as she doesn't like change. However over time her phone kept droping wifi network connection. I would have to power it down and remove battery and sim card to get it to stay on wif for a few days. Finaly that was no longer a fix. I went to a AT&T hotspot and downloaded the latest ICS update.on her phoneNo matter what I do it will connect to our network wifi and bring in mail etc for about ten seconds then the singal bars change from white to blue, The settings menue shows wifi still on blue connected but the signal bars shows blue. Her data use would indicate it is indee using cingular data.

BB Curve 8300 :: Have And A Number Of Apps Are Failing To Stay Connected
I have and a number of apps are failing to stay connected. They will all connect very briefly and then cite an unexpected internal err. They all will then disconnect. The only exception to this is VNCen which throws an exception: "" Bad socket id

Browser, email, gmail app, bbim all work.

After researching this, and following due diligence I deleted all the service books and resent them to no avail. Then (for hardware failure) I replaced the device. Once the initial service books were in place, I tried again, and again, no success. Tried again after a wipe/hard reset. No success.

I contacted VZW tech support to insure provisioning was correct. It is. They are unable to assist any further.

The following is a list of the apps that are failing:
VNCen 1.0
BBTran 1.5
RDM+ 3.7.7
MobileFileManager 2.5.36
AOL Instant Messenger 2.1.41 (from the blackberry site)

One thing I think is important to note is that I think they all connect at least for a short period of time. For example MobileFileManager has a FTP client and it will create a connection to my FTP server, I can see it in the log. VNCen will actually display my pc desktop for a little bit before it croaks. AIM begins to tease me with my buddy list before it withers. All the apps point to some unhanded exception. seems to shed some light:

"Java Errors and Error Handling - Error: open HTTP connection failed"

Which seems to say that perhaps there is an issue with a proxy, but if that's the case, why the duce did it connect in the first place?

I am at my wit's end.

At this point, I've had the phone since the 11th, and I'm planning on returning the phone if it will not allow me to geek out sufficiently.

BB Bold 9000 :: Standby Mode - Voice Dial Key - Permanent Standby
I've found a very annoying bug with the Blackberry Bold that hasn't been addressed in any of the firmware updates that I've seen to date. I've been able to repeat the bug with several Bold devices that I've had an opportunity to use. I didn't know how to report the bug directly to RIM, so I thought I'd put it up here in hope that somebody at RIM may see it and pass it on to somebody that's responsible for the Bold's software.

Under the right circumstances, the Blackberry Bold will enter standby mode, and will never exit it without resetting the unit by pulling the battery or hitting alt-right shift-del. If the voice dial button (left convenience key) is pressed just as the unit is entering stand-by mode, and then the voice dial feature starts and times out, the unit does not crash, but is effectively useless. Hitting the mute/standby key does not do anything, and neither does any other key on the keyboard. Holding the red hangup key will cause the device to shutdown, but if you turn on the unit again without resetting it, the keyboard will still be disabled (you'll be prompted for the SIM card's PIN, but won't be able to enter it).

Step-by-step procedure to recreate the bug:

- Make sure the left standby key is in its default setting (voice dial)
- Hold down the mute key to put the unit into standby mode
- As soon as the "Entering standby mode" window pops up, hold down the left convenience key
- When voice dial starts up, don't say anything at the voice dial prompts
- When voice dial times out and exits, you'll find that the unit is permanently in standby mode, and the keyboard is completely useless, regardless of how much you press the mute/standby button to try to exit standby mode.
- Only way I've found to get out of this is to pull the battery or to reset the unit with alt-right shift-del

I keep my Bold in my back pocket, and find that the left convenience key gets hit by accident when I put my phone away (after hitting standby) -- this bug was affecting me several times a week! Very annoying. I've had to disable the left convenience key to get avoid this issue.
