Hi @bitflung! Well, I’m back on my $10 plan after 3 days of the $25 plan and travel. Wander worked wonderfully for me
FANTASTIC NEWS! thanks for the feedback!
- at first. I think it may still have worked perfectly and it was another app I had on the phone - WiFi AfterConnect that sent me into problems.
[…] there was the cute little green noodle - with the gray triangle… arrrggghhhh!!
bummer. well, that shouldn’t’ be related to Wander - I don’t touch the wifi data at all - so i’m guessing either the other app or just generic issues with wifi caused your woes.
Could not sign into wifi, even though there was a strong signal.
couldn’t sign in? or after signing in the RW app wouldn’t turn the Arc solid green? these are definitely two different problems to have, so it’s important to know which one it was (and it might be best to move this discussion to a new thread so others with this issue in the future can find the help more easily)
Tried MacDonalds the next day - same thing. I shut phone down - started it back up - nada. I uninstalled both programs in frustration.
after uninstalling both apps, did the McDonalds wifi work properly for you?
After I got home - and got my home internet up and running again (that was a whole different nightmare), the phone connected just fine to my WiFi and has been fine ever since.
i’m curious why the home wifi needed to be setup again, but that’s likely a whole different issue (?)
now that it is working again, have you reinstalled Wander and that wifi app? have you tried McDonalds/etc since reinstalling those apps? any difference in the phone’s behavior?
I’m really thinking it was the other program that messed it all up, but just in case somebody else had the same thing happen…
absolutely a good idea to post here, at least to get the options on the table. i’m very confident that Wander could not cause these issues and it’s good to document that here.
As I’m on the $10 plan, I won’t be able to test it out until I travel again. I will reinstall it however.
i hope you do. if/when you have issues again in the future, try uninstalling ONLY the wifi app (WiFi AfterConnect). it sounds like a very likely source of your issues.
Thanks for writing the program… it worked great. I’m just feeling mighty guilty about all the 3G data I used, although most of the time I wasn’t in a roaming area and when I was, I didn’t use data.
RW has added caps to roaming data, so we can’t cause them any real harm anymore: don’t feel guilty for using data (roaming or not). Wander should be able to help you save your roaming data allowance for use late in the month when you might really need it, and so its main function is to help YOU moreso than RW (though it ought to be meaningful to RW as well, that’s a secondary purpose now that RW has roaming data caps).
