EPIC and WIFI

Hello,

I've recently go the Epic,  I really like this phone except for a few querks that it has.  One is the Wifi,  I was able to connect to it the first day I got this phone with no issues.  After the second day I could never connect or it will take a really long time.  The phone stays in "Obtaining ip address"    Anybody else having this issue?

Thanks

It sounds to me like it may be a weak sign.

You may want to try power cycling the phone by removing the battery for 1-5 min then turn the phone back on.

Also unplug the power cable from the wireless router in your home for 1-5 min.

When you get the phone to turn back on enable the wifi settings.

Menu > settings >wireless and networks >wifi settings > then turn wifi on.

Just to be 100% sure under wifi networks select your wifi connection and chose forget.

Then scan for available connections and try reconnecting that way.

Hope this help fix the obtaining ip problem good luck.
