1) Pull your battery
2) Dial *2 talk or make a short active call, then hangup (this grabs a tower and speeds up the next step)
3) menu>settings> about phone/system updates> update profile.
Once complete test Google

That outa do it.

You can also always try a data Restore (##3282#) but you'll need the MLS (Master Subsidy Lock Code) from a sprint rep or from Sprint Chat.

Our rj45 is reading no cell. what could be wrong?


I'm not sure what do you mean by "your rj45". If it's a model of a router, maybe you mean that you can't get connected you smartphone to the router?
Are you sure SETTING of your phone is activated?
With setting activated, take your phone to a hotspot - site where you have free Internet connection.
If still can't connect it, probably the WiFi adapter circuit (well, anything like that) of your cell phone is failing. an you shouls check it with an authorized repair service.
Ok, that's my idea. Actually you can input a google search for

My wifi stop working,i dont know why???


Solutions to Common Android WI-Fi ProblemsFriends of mine who use an Android come over to me usually with problems related to their devices' Wi-Fi connectivity. Moreover, it's not a single isolated issue. There are all kinds of them they bring up. I usually fix their problem after few troubleshoots but today while I was fixing a problem on my device, I realized that it could happen to any one - even to my readers on Guiding Tech. Hence we are going to discuss four of the most common Android Wi-Fi problems and see the probable causes and solutions to them.
Android Cannot Scan a Wi-Fi Network Reason
There may be two reasons as to why your Android cannot scan a network automatically. The first reason may be that the network you are trying to connect to could be Ad-Hoc in nature. As most of the Android phones are not configured to work on Ad-Hoc networks but on access points, they don't scan them.
The second reason may be that the Wi-Fi network you are trying to connect to might be hidden for security reasons.
Solution
By default, Android does not support Ad-Hoc Wi-Fi network but many developers patch the wpa_supplicant file on Android in order for them to work. If you do a quick Google search you will be able to find if there's a fix available for your device but the fix can only be performed on a rooted phone. Furthermore, don't forget to back up your original wpa_supplicant file if at all your phones goes into foreclose or boot loops.

If the problem is with the hidden network, you can try to add the network manually. In Android Wi-Fi settings open menu and tap to add a network manually. You must enter the correct SSID and authentication type and password in order to connect to the network. If both the credentials are correct, the Android phone will be able to connect to the network.
Wi-Fi Keeps Disconnecting Frequently Reason
The most obvious reason for the problem may be with the Wi-Fi Sleep Policy which disconnects your Wi-Fi every time your Android goes to sleep to save your battery's juice.
Solution
To manage Wi-Fi Sleep Policy, open Advance Wi-Fi settings on Android and tap the option Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep. Here, check the option Always to enjoy an uninterrupted connectivity, but you will have to compensate it with your battery life.

If you are using any third-party app to save your battery, check if it's controlling your Wi-Fi and other radio services and configure accordingly.
Obtaining IP Address Infinite Loop Reason
I don't know the exact reason behind this, but it might be a bug in Android. I have seen many people getting this problem, and it gets kind of annoying when the problem does not gets fixed even after restarting the device.
Solution
First of all, you must restart your Wi-Fi router and see if that helps. Many people say that resetting the phone to factory state works but that's not an appropriate solution. Wi-Fi Fixer is an amazing Android app that can help you here. The app resets your Wi-Fi system files (same as when you reinstall the Wi-Fi drivers in Windows, or you disable and enable the Wi-Fi adapter) and services and helps you to connect to the network and obtain the IP address.

    wifi-fixer.png If you know the range of IP address the router is broadcasting, you may configure your Android to use static IP address while connecting to the network.
    Can't Connect to Internet using Wi-Fi Reasons
    There may be several reasons as to why you are not able to connect to the internet even when you are connected to the Wi-Fi. The reasons may be:
    • The router is not broadcasting internet services.
    • The IP address or the gateway is wrong.
    • Problem with the DNS settings.
    Solutions
    You may use another device to check if the router is actually broadcasting internet. Also you can configure the IP address, the gateway and DNS manually to connect as their might be problems with DHCP.
    Conclusion These are pretty much most of the Android problems one might encounter on his device and the probable solution one can try to fix the problem. I don't guarantee that you will fix the problem but it's a good start nonetheless. And most of the solutions should work actually.


Thanks .

Tablet will not connect to wifi


When you tether with your Android-powered smartphone, you can connect to the Internet on your computer from any location covered by your cellphone service provider's network. Tethering allows your phone to act as a modem for the computer. Tethering applications such as Tether for Android allow you to set up tethering without the need to root your phone. Before tethering, check with your cellphone service provider to determine how much data you are allowed to use without incurring data charges. Excessive use of the Android phone as a modem can cause you to exceed your allotted data.

Search the Android Market on your phone for a tethering application. Applications such as EasyTether and PdaNet are available to download for free. Download the application from the Market. Installation begins immediately after the download. When installation finishes, an icon for the tethering app is placed on the Android's expanded home screen. Open a Web browser on the computer and access the site specified in the tethering application's description in the Market. Download and install the USB drivers needed to tether from the site. When installation is finished, an icon for the tethering application is placed on the computer's desktop. Tap "Settings" on your Android phone, then tap "Applications." Tap "Development" and enable "USB Debugging." When the field turns green, it is enabled. Connect the phone to the computer with its USB cable. Launch the tethering application on the phone. Launch the application on the computer. Click the option to connect to the Internet in the home screen. When the connection is established, confirmation is displayed in the status window.

How to tether my milestone to my loptop


You can tether your droid to a computer with a USB cable to share internet connection, but verizon charges you a hefty price.
Fortunately, there are apps on the android market that also do the job.
Method 1: Tether Android with Apps that Need Root (Free, heavy configuration)

The Android Wi-Fi Tether application turns your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot--essentially aMiFi--in one tap. The catch? You have to gain root access to your phone, a multi-step process that uses an unofficial Android add-on which can brick your phone if applied incorrectly. Rooting Android is doable for geeks and hackers with experience soft-modding hardware, but it's not something most users could (or should!) do.
Method 2: Tether Android with Proxoid (Free, no root required, some configuration If you don't want to gain root but know enough to get around the command line and use proxy servers, the Proxoid Android app can tether your phone for free.
Method 3: Tether Android with PdaNet ($30, no root required, minimal configuration Finally, the PdaNet Android application lets you tether Android using an app on the phone plus simple software you install on your computer

Keypad locked and simcard does not have inbuilt internet connecti

















Ok, so for whatever reason you have entered your little pattern too many times on your Android phone and you are now locked out. You can't remember your pattern, something or someone else entered it too many times or something of the like and you are now stuck at the "Too Many Pattern Attempts" screen. The phone is demanding the Google account details that you synced the phone with when you very first turned it on.

Android Updated


Hi There,

So your G1 has received an Over the air update ?

you will not be able to view a Changelog within the phone showing what updates to the software have been made, but you will be able to see your Firmware Version which wil show what build you have updated to, from there you will be able to find changelogs on the internet !

To view your Firmware version goto your Main home Screen, Press the MENU button,press the SETTINGS tab, Scroll to the bottom and press the ABOUT PHONE button, from here you will be able to view all of the androids firmware information, with the Update being part of the Build number.

RC19 is the standard out of the box version for pre-ordered G1s,There are currently 2 updates for the android Software, RC28 was issued on the phones release date to fix issues with the IM program among other things, but that update was stopped due to there being security errors within the internet browser which could allow for keyloggers, Google has since the 27th october released RC29 which fixes all of the previous RC28 issues and also sorts out the security errors.

Too see which build your phone is goto the bottom of the About phone tab where there is a Build number. this build number should say something like : kila-user 1.0TC4-RC19 109652 ota-rel-keys, release-keys (example).

The bold number i have highlighted within that build number shows which update version you are currently using !

hope this helps
