    is anyone else having issues with this?
    my razr maxx seems to keep forgetting my home network password i have to keep typing it in
    while at home connected to my wifi network when i leave the phone for a while after i unlock it it says wifi networks available i have to select my network again and type in the password all over
    it seems its disconnecting automatically when i leave the phone
    i went into wireless settings then advanced and selected "never" for wifi sleep policy
    double check and triple checked the wifi sleep setting is indeed set for never
    does any one have a solution it it very annoying having to keep typing the password
    any help would be greatly appreciated

    try setting up a "home" rule in smart actions and see if that makes any difference

    I use a smart action rule with my home location and have never had any trouble connecting to my home network while I am at home and in range automatically with zero input from me even after doing things like entering my house with wifi off on my phone, rebooting the phone, phone waking from sleep, etc.

    I setup my wifi network password once when I first got the phone and have never had to enter it again (my wifi policy is also set to never sleep)

    Did this problem ever get fixed? It has forgotten my home network twice today. I am on Att U-verse and I cant remember the password because they give you a random password. This is beginning to be frustrating.

    try running Verizon WiFi auto-on in addition to an active "home" smart action set to turn on WiFi when the phone detects your network and see if that works

    I will try it but how will this keep my maxx from completely forgetting that it has connected to my network before? I have been on wifi here just in the middle of browsing it forgets it and says wireless networks available and I have to go find the password again.
