| | Re: limited number of WiFi profiles
Of course, a message pops up, saying just this:
"The maximum allowed number of active profiles has been reached. This profile will be disabled".
In previous versions of OS6 (and 5) a message popped up, that, because the maximum profiles limit has been reached, this profile cannot be saved.
hmhm, I dont think 32 profiles are that much. Wherever I go and, get a password, I save it, Also, I have some customers profiles saved.
This alone is more then 32 in my small home town.
I dont save open networks or HotSpots, because these are open anyway, or you have to supply credentials.
These are Networks with a strong password. I dont like to punch in a combination like "23948fjkd§dkxdhj2" everytime I go somewhere.
If the network is saved, the BB will just connect. This is, what I would expect in terms of a good user experience.
you might need 128 bytes to store a network profile. Storing 1024 profiles will eat 128KBytes of the memory. A simple application for the BB will be about 500KBytes, so there is no reason to limit the profiles to 32 entries.
Comparing the currently Broadcasted SSIDs to the stored profiles every 2 Minutes should also not take forever.
But, if I am the only Blackberry user which needs more then 32 Wifi Profiles, I think I cant expect a fix within the next years.
