    Recently, when I've checked for an update on my phone it gives me a notice saying something to the tune of "you need service to check for an update". It gives me this when I'm connected to WiFi of 4G/3G. What should I do about this? I have attached a picture as an example of what actually happens.

    Thanks

    I checked other forums and found that you can try this: Settings > Application Manager > Google Service Framework > Force Stop/Clear Data/Enable.
    It worked for me!

    Well I had this exact same problem on both my Bionic and X2. I tried EVERYTHING. Even stuff I didn't think would work.


    Only thing to do is a FDR. I can almost guarantee that'll fix it. Sad, but true.
