    New Incredible... WIFI radio won't stay on?

    Hi All,

    Well I finally made the jump to a smart phone.. got the incredible.

    I'm having trouble keeping my wifi radio on? It will turn on but then turn off seconds later.

    So far the apps I have installed are task killer.. which I removed and installed juicedefender.... I since have removed that app too. I wonder if these apps broke my brand new phone?

    Will a reset to factory fix this? If so what exactly happens after a factory reset? Do I lose all of my email configurations, contacts etc?

    Thanks for any help.
    Dan

    Have you tried turning your phone off/ back on?
    I was JUST on Droid Incredible forum asking the same question but after reboot it stopped doing it.
    It may also be your router. One poster said her phone does not like Belkin and neither did mine so I replaced it( had a bad port )
    Yes a factory reset deletes everything, save that for a last resort. That didn't solve my Belkin issue, just caused a bunch of hassle

    Go ahead and put juice defender back on but you don't need the task killer as it will do more battery drain than help

    I wonder how careful I must be installing just any old app? Can these apps actually screw things up?

    I did reboot the phone.. yes..

    Belkin is a swear word in my vocabulary... There is nothing Belkin in my house I have ATT Uverse with a 2wire router..

    But my problems seem to be more related to the phone itself?

    Thanks for the tidbit about resetting the phone. I read on another forum that was what solved their wifi radio not staying on problem.

    I have a Linksys router. It is set up to allow only certain MAC addresses to access the internet. This is so my wireless printer is always on the same IP. I have manually entered all the laptops and desktop MAC address' so there is no unauthorized access to my network. I did the same for my DINC. I never have a problem with it connecting. It stays connected.

    FM radio trouble

    Since the 2.2 upgrade, my fm radio won't go on at all . I get this error message:"Sorry! The application FM RAdio has stopped unexpected. Please try again." I used to enjoy listening to the radio through the phone, and it's an important feature for me. I have tried turning the phone off and rebooting, and nothing has worked. Help?!
