I recently switched from an Evo Shift to the Photon 4G. I love the Photon, but I seem to be having a strange wifi problem.
When I get to work, I connect to wifi and go about my day. Later when I go to check my phone it is connected to 3g and not wifi.
After I unlock the phone I get the message that a wifi network had been detected and it reconnects to the wifi network.
This never happened on my shift, is this some weird quark of the Photon, or did I miss a setting somewhere?
That may be part of it. But I would check here first:
1.From the Home screen, press Menu > Settings.
2.Touch Wireless & networks > Wi-Fi settings.
3.Press Menu > Advanced > Wi-Fi sleep policy.
4.Touch When screen turns off.
It's supposed to help with battery life but if it's more annoying than useful feel free to turn it off.
I think that's the setting I was looking for.
Mine was set to never when plugged in.
I set it to never since I want it to always use wifi when available.
I will post tomorrow with a follow up to see if that solved my problem.
Thanks for the help!
Setting the wifi sleep policy to never solved my problem with it connecting to 3g when locked and it improved my battery life significantly.
