Is it possible that maybe its on my PS side of it..? Could the software on my pc not be installing the right drivers onto the phone or something..?

Ive reinstalled the different OS's 100 times I even reinstalled DM to be sure..Maybe I'll try a different PC next.. I dunno Im @ a loss

How long have you had your Bold, that sounds like a hardware failure (they do happen). I can't see how you could have done it by installing an OS. Each device specific OS has all the code to operate the hardware on that device. As long as you aren't installing 8800 code on a 9000 (I don't believe that is even possable) it should work.

Take it back to Rogers.

Just over a year Ive had it..I also just noticed this morning GPS will not connect to any satellites..

So does GPS & WiFi use the same radio or antenna..?

I wouldn't think so, but there is bound to be a hardware commonality somewhere. Power, chip select, etc. Progressive hardware failure, I'm afraid it sounds like time for a new device.

That is good if you can live without Wi-Fi. Still sounds like hardware. If you have some time to waste you could try Rogers Customer Service.
