I've had the 808 since the initial release in India, i.e since August 13. Got it replaced once for the purple tint issue. Though the replacement set has some issues with touchscreen response, but I've learned to live with it. And everything else was working fine, till about a week ago.
But now my 808 cannot connect to Wifi, randomly (quite often, actually). If I enable the wifi and go to the Wifi main page, I can see my home network being detected and shown as "Known". I tap on it to connect, it says "Connecting" for about a second or even less than that and then says "Known" again. I've tried tapping on it many times, but it just doesn't connect. Tried different connections of wifi, i.e. joikuspot from my N8, cannot even connect to that. Disabling and re-enabling the Wifi don't work either.
To make Wifi work again, I have to reboot the phone every time the problem arises. It's really annoying, since I use a lot a Wifi.
Please can anyone help me sort out this issue?
Hi dude your problem is like mine, I bought my Nokia 808 PureView version black in a store OPorto/Portugal (made in china).I already noticed that the wireless stops working only after six hours, more or less...
And I am very upset about it, I have to always turn off the mobile phone, and turn on the mobile phone for Wirless work again, but i have other preblems with a camera.The funcion Sharpness dont work also!
I don't know if is an problem of Hardware(Bad design internal Wi-Fi recever) or just need to be ReFlashed whith other Firmware more recente lke with SP2 "maybe". I'm in the same boat as you, Nokia creates phones but not test them fully. They're more interested in selling as much as possible, even with defects.
PS: I am sorry not to have bought the Sansumg S3 or Sony Experia S.
Final Note: Don't be sad perhaps to the future they are doing a correction, Nokia have to take the mistakes and correct them.We have to unite so they look to know that something wrong came in 808 Pureview!
Good luck to correct this problems, and send me an e-mail to explain how to fix, OK?
The same happens on my Italian 808 PureView.
