Default Trouble getting WPA-PSK wifi to work on 8350i

Please Login to Remove!

When I got my 8350i I had brought it back to our office where we have a unprotected wifi AP (heavily filtered, for guest use), and when I put in the SSID the 8350i instantly went live (brighter white wifi logo). This is good.

When I got home I added a network for my home wifi AP which is WPA-PSK secured. It failed to connect. I fiddled and fiddled and only got it to work when I did something called connect to hotspot or something like that. After that it was connected. Some time later I powered off so I could look behind the battery (sim, micro SD etc), but when I powered back on I was no longer connected to my AP. I could not for the life of me find the "hotspot" menu item that I had used before.

Can anyone shed any light on where this is, and why I would have to use it. I had assumed that if I had put the credentials in that it would automatically connect. Help me see the light.

Also, does anyone find the notifies to be extremly loud? I used the Sonar ping notify for my email on the 7100i and when I re-sync'd with BES it seems to have picked that has my email (or maybe it just defaulted that way), but in any event even with volume set at low, it's pretty darn loud. Any way to quiet it down?
