I am frustrated beyond belief, here. My Kin Twom only connects to my home Wifi every once in a while. Usually it SAYS I am connected, but all of the IP Address, etc. reads: 0.0.0.0.
Also, lately I can't text pictures or videos without being connected. I used to be able to send pictures and videos as text, not email. Now I can't do EITHER because my phone will not REALLY connect to my Wifi. My husband has the same phone, and he is connected (currently) just fine. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
Make sure yours is at full charge. Other than that, if you are right next to the wireless router and not getting a good connect, there is absolutely something wrong with the KIN, since your husbands works fine.
I gave up forcing myself to like the KIN2 after 3 months. All it's little problems just bug me to no end. My Kin2 is now a camera for my van, to record what's in front of me. Works great for that.
