    Issue with wifi stuck "Turning Off"

    Hi folks,

    I'm using a stock Droid X and recently I have been having issues with my wifi getting stuck "Turning Off", which subsequently is draining my battery life and preventing me from connecting to any wifi networks.

    I have tried restarting my phone and even pulling the battery, only to have the problem persist. On occasion it will fix the issue and stick the wifi in the "On" position but the problem always returns within minutes.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!

    Are you using a task killer or any antivirus on your phone? Are using market widget or the OEM widgets?

    ATK is bad news. Not saying that it's the problem here, but uninstall it anyway.

    Then you can't just take it back and get a replacement with the 30-day no-questions-asked policy. However, if you take it to the store and demonstrate that there's an issue (don't most stores have free WiFi?) then they with either fix it, show you how to fix it, or offer you a CLN replacement. If they give you any grief don't be rude or anything, just keep asking for them to fix it. This shouldn't cost you the $90 co-pay for insurance.
