Default JiveTalk + 4.6.0.150 (Bold) Wifi Issue

Please Login to Remove!

I posted about this briefly in another thread, and have done quite a bit of testing including rolling back to .147 and would like to see if other Bold owners have had a similar experience.

While using JiveTalk, and wifi is active and functional (tested by loading a site in the browser with the Carrier Network disabled). Preference is set to Prefer Wifi, APN Settings are correct, and I have tried both BIS and TCP connection types. At this point JiveTalk title bar is grey (logged out), and the wifi badge is present but is also grayed-out. If I attempt to login on an account, I receive the "Network coverage unavailable..." message.

I checked all permissions for JiveTalk (allowed everything), with no effect.

Upon reverting back to .147, all works well again.

I have sent an email to BeeJive Support, and am awaiting a reply, which I am sure will contain a general "We currently do not support... yada yada yada..."

So, anyone on a Bold, using 4.6.0.150, JiveTalk 1.1 over wifi ?

Something to look for. Are you really wifi-less. It appears at times that JiveTalk will use the wifi connection (watch for the ultra fast data TX arrows while on EDGE), but will not display the wifi badge, nor allow me to turn of the cell radio and go alone with wifi.

I have noticed similar symptoms in the browser as well. Using wifi, but no badge, and can't surf without cell signal.

.147 here I come!

I can confirm JiveTalk will not work on Wifi with the cell signal turned off on .150.

I have reverted back to .147 and everything is working as it should. There were too many issues with wifi (some outside of JiveTalk) on the .150 for me to use it.

It has been widely reported that many of the issues with wifi that were experienced on .15x builds are resolved with .162 .
