Default Curve powering off-on-off-on with wifi connect

Please Login to Remove!

I have beenhaving this issue for a month. WHen i connect to wifi my ohone powers off, then on (just long enough to get to the home screen then powers back off before i can turn the wifi off on the phone.

the ONLY way i can get it to completely power on and stay on is to go unplug my router and then let my BB power on and disable my wifi connection.

I called tmobile today and they had me wipe my phone 2x and then reinstall 4.2

It STILL doesnt work!! What do I do.

They told me I cant get a replacement because i bought it from someone who no longer has a tmobile account (New policy???)

HELP!!

Some routers do not interact well with the Curve. Fios' Actiontec router for one. Some N routers, some Belkins, and others.

Also, the Tmobile stock version of 4.2 was not the greatest. I think it is 4.2.2.180. 4.2.2.184 was pretty good for UMA. 4.5 seems even better for most users.

Edit: Here's another user who fixed his problem with .184.

Here's 4.5. Latest released version is always at the top of the 8300 forum. It might not fix the router problem though.

Well it might be back to normal by now, but if not, stop using it right away, pull the battery and let it dry out. Put it on top of a computer monitor or TV to let the heat help dry it. Maybe try a blow dryer to get most of the water out before you let it sit.

Not as bad as dunking it completely, but you don't want the water corroding anything or shorting anything.
