    That sounds very weird.
    Did you try it on a few different wifi's to make sure its not a router issue that needs to be restarted?
    Cellular service shouldnt make any difference connecting to wifi.
    Put the phone in airplane mode and then try to connect to see whats up.

    I connect to my job's wifi with no problem and I'm on airplane mode. Make sure that the wifi is working. If it's a public wifi make sure that you've agreed to TOS or paid to access it.

    It should definately work even if there is "No Service". At my house I am on the edge of no coverage and Edge coverage so I will randomly get "Searching" or "No Service" and never have any problem with Wifi service.
