Issue: Samsung Galaxy S I9003 Cannot Connect To Wifi

I used to have a samsung galaxy s i9000, it was replaced when i lost it recently by a samsung galaxy scd i9003 (pretty sure thats the name). Other than being pretty miffed by the dire lack of memory and slightly reduced spec, my main problem is that the phone will not detect to my personal wifi, where the old one could detect and connect with no problems. I do not currently have access to the broadband router page, as i live in rented accommodation and it is controlled by the landlord.

I cannot understand why, when both have the same wireless receiver and wifi set up, one phone can see and connect to the wifi with no problem, and yet the new one cant detect it. Its a bt home hub that has been there for over a year. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

App To Save Home Screen - Wifi Is On Constantly - Samsung Galaxy S2

I have some questions and would be grateful if someone could let me have an answer or two: -

1. I saw a home screen recently which had a shortcut on it to mobile networks/use packet data. How was this done/what program was used to create it etc?

2. When i first got my phone i configured the phone to only switch on wifi when the screen was active. For the life of me i do not know how i did this. Recently this setting has been lost and the wifi is on constantly. When i am at home i would like it to switch off when the screen goes off and comes on when active. The only thing i can find is "wifi sleep policy, which i have configured to "when screen turns off". However after my screen switches off and i turn it back on, i do not see any signs of it having been off - ie; i do not see it switching back on like it used to do, by observing the top notifications bar. This is a drain on my battery - yesterday i noticed that it had been on all the time i was at work - over 10 hours - and the battery reduced by 50%, which is not what it used to do. In wifi settings, even though i am locked on to my home wifi, the phone is constantly scanning away every few seconds - i would like it to stop doing this when connected. Any thoughts etc please?

3. Is there a program out there which can save your home screens/application screens? Yes i know i can restore my phone using cpw/titanium backup but i only want to restore my home screens after diddling about with new themes etc. I usually always prefer the look and feel of my existing ones but am getting fed up with restoring manually and titanium backup doesn't appear to do this - it wants to restore all my previous apps etc. Again some help would be appreciated.

4. In cpw/titanium backup how do i start to freeze a program? I would like to experiment with freezing wifi sharing but not sure how to do this exactly ie; what exactly do i do? - The opening screens are not that user friendly. Fwiw i am on 2. 3. 4 cpw (waiting patiently for an upgrade via kies) and cf-1 kernel (i think).

Samsung Moment - Phone Won't Connect To Office Wifi

Asking even though i see a couple threads for the hero on this issue because none of them address exactly what is giong on with my moment. So i had some media issues and swapped phones at the sprint store, and that went away. Nearly everything is great now, save for this one tiny thing.

When i visit my wife's office my phone wont connect to their office wifi. My phone has no issue using our home wifi (which requires a password) and the sprint store's open wifi. It also connects to the open wifi at the local library. The reason i am curious about her office wifi is that she got a hero when i got my moment, and her hero connects to her office wifi with no issue. So i am wondering if there is some setting i should change on my moment to connect. My phone will see her connection, and it says the signal is fair. It then says "connecting", but is unsuccessful and stops after a minute or so.

Connect / Hook Up Galaxy Nexus To A Car Dvd Deck

So after doing research it seems the only way to hook up your nexuse to a car dvd deck (which none of them have hdmi yet) is to get a mhl adapter then a converter that will convert the signal to analog. Has anyone done this or tried it? Just want to know if it works as it would be awesome to have netflix on the go. I cant think of any other way to do it. Powering all the adapters would be a pita.

Can't Set Samsung Galaxy S2 As Wifi Hotspot

I was out of the house with my laptop the other day and thought i'd see if i could set up wireless access to the net through my galaxy s2. I think i turned it on through the "portable wi-fi hotspot settings" option and the laptop found the signal but wouldn't connect for some reason! Is it a setting i have missed or is it something to do with the carrier - i'm on three but not the "all you can eat data" tariff! Can you only do this with certain carriers or should it work on any?

Cannot Remove Home Screens On Samsung Galaxy S2

My old galaxy s2 on orange uk was perfect, i could delete unused home screens and i customized it exactly how i wanted it. However today i had to have my phone replaced under warranty as the touch screen became unresponsive in places. The phone they have sent me obv has different software on it because i don't like it and i cant customize it!

My first problem is that i never had on my old phone was i now have 5 home screens and a orange scroll bar across the bottom. I don't use widgets or any of that crap, i use 1 home screen with 4 icons on and everything else is organized in folders in the app screen. However i cant remove them. If i hold them down all i get is a "add to homescren" window with the following listed:

Orange widgets
Orange shortcuts
Android widgets
Android shortcuts
Folders
Wallpapers

If i press the menu button on said screens, i get

All programs
Add to homescreen
Wallpaper
Search
Notifications
Settings

By default it also opens straight to the 3rd (middle) screen of the 5. I have no trash bin to drag them down to like my previous phone. Somebody please help me and tell me how to get rid of them?

Cant Connect At Home Wireless

Ok so my husband is a cheap ass and bought an irobot apad its a google android i guess? Anyhow it seems to be an okay product, im mostly excited for kindle and skype but im having a few problems.

First, so far i've only been able to connect to the internet at work using the free wifi they have. At home even though it shows i have a connection to a wireless network the internet will not work. Does it have to be wifi? Is there a difference in wifi and regular wireless internet? Also, it came with an adapter you plug into it that you can plug usb or an ethernet cord into and one of the icons is ethernet settings.

When i plus the ethernet cord in, it recognizes it b/c the symbol pops up at the top, but again, i cant browse the internet it wont work. Its so frustrating i dont want to only be able to use it at work or have to wait until im in a wifi hotspot like starbucks or work to download books i buy from the kindle store. Also sometimes it says my sd card was unexpectedly removed, even though it wasn't. Is it broken? Is my sd card damaged? I noticed after i had put it in my apad, when i put it in the adapter and plugged into my desktop i couldnt delete any music.

Samsung Galaxy S (vibrant) Home Key Issue

It was too good to be true. A perfectly working phone. So i started having the issue where the home key doesn't register alot of times, and apparently its a known issue over the net. Many people are having this same issue where the home key doesn't work properly. Every other key is perfect, but the home key doesn't listen. I wonder if samsung will recall it, or could this be fixed with a firmware update? Or is it hardware? That's why i should have bought from t-mobile so i dont have to deal with wirefly.

Ics - Roaming Indication On Home Network - Samsung Galaxy S2

Recently upgraded my galaxy s2 to ics using a guide at cnet.co.uk. All appears to work fine apart from one thing - sat at home, my signal indicator shows that i am roaming and a warning notification reports "you have lost data connectivity because you left your home network with data roaming turned off". To clarify, i'm at home, a three network customer and never saw the roaming indicator at anytime before in the uk. I also have data roaming turned off for the usual obvious reasons. Has anyone encountered this and does anyone have any ideas how i can remedy this situation?
