Morning guys, just to let you know that since I detected that issue with my WiFi router - my signal has not dropped since on the Lumia 800. Maybe just fortunate with mine and if others are having issues - I agree could be a faulty device and needs replacement at the point of sale where you got it. After all it's fair to say that any brand will always have a small percentage of products that will have a defect - quite normal and Nokia are no exception.
Hey JC, the issue for me is definitely with the phone as the wifi dropping out happens at home as well as work, so thats two different routers and broadband services
did too many reset of the phone now tto find any other justification.
what really bugs me is that there is no option to back up those wp7.
I have my Lumia 800 since last Friday, and with WI-FI always on, data connections always on, I need to recharge my phone after 40 - 48 hours of usage. I use it basically for browsing, listening to music, about an hour a day, playing games, but not much. Having in mind that my old Android phone was discharged with more than 50% after browsing for half an hour I can say that I'm more than happy. This is my very first Nokia and my very first WP, and I'm pretty sure that I will never get back to any Android device. Android is too boring, and you have to wait for ages to get new update.
Just had the firmware update this evening. Unfortunately still have the WiFi issue. I'm hoping that battery life may be improved though...
I was just wondering if any of you had heard anything back of Nokia regarding the wifi issue? I've had my Lumia since monday and have only gone one day without the wifi dropping and the phone not turning on after restarting. I've sent an email myself today but just wondered if anyone else has had anything back from them. Also has anyone sent their handset back and recieved a new one? Are the issues still there?
For those of you who are as I am, testing various settings for power drain, there is an app in the Marketplace called Connectivity shortcuts which will make is easier to turn settings on and off when required.
Right then, I got a call earlier today from Nokia telling me to reset my phone to see if that cures the problem. If not then they'll speak with my network provider to issue a replacement handset. Progress maybe! In regards to the issues raised about battery life, i have found i can get a days use with a fair amount of battery left if everything is turned off. I do have to say though, after a reletively short text conversation the other day the battery meter did drop a fair bit. As said before why should we have to turn everything off just to get a full days use out of our phones!!!!
Who have you contacted at Nokia regarding the WiFi issue? I am still having this problem (ironically when the WiFi drops it appears to coincide with the worst battery performance), just thought I may be able to cut out the middle man!
Cheers in advance!
any solutions to the wifi issue yet? I have the exact same issue with wifi crashing after 4-5 hours (not related to better life - happens even while on charge). Have to restart to get wifi working again.
Provider: Orance, France
Well..i honestly thought i was in the clear with this phone...obviously not! Yesterday the phone's wifi crapped out, so i rebooted (well it took about 4 attempts to turn it back on!) but i thought that maybe it was a one off..NOPE!
Literally five mins ago the wifi had crapped out, so i turned the phone off and it would not turn on, i plugged it into my PC and the phone then came back on showing a low battery sybol even though it was at at least 50%!!!, after about 6 attempts of holding the power button in it FINALLY came back on!!
Going back to carphone tomorrow to get ANOTHER replacement...this is not cool!
Hi...my wifi goes off as soon as the phone goes off to sleep and comes on when I wake it. This is extremely annoying as I don't get push updates when the wifi is off...does anyone know how to get this sorted?
