    Bought my S3 last week and has been working great so far. I have wifi in the house which I use. When I go out I use data. I went to a place today that had wifi and signed in and was working fine. When I got home I could not connect to my wifi, only data so I thought I was locked in there because there was a guest password that was needed. I called and had asked them if they could shut down internet/wifi so maybe it would unlock me but it didn't.

    Any suggestions on how to reconnect to my home wifi?

    Thanks
    Joe

    I assume the phone remembered the other wifi, if so, tell it to "forget" it. If that doesn't work try forgetting your home wifi and then reconnecting, it wouldn't hurt to power cycle the router either.
    If it's still not working, try a battery pull, and as a last resort a full hard reset should definitely take care of it. (a hard reset will wipe everything off of the phone, so make sure you back up anything you don't want to lose.) good luck.
