    I'm connected to a secure wifi network and no matter what I do my edge indicator won't go away and display the wifi symbol. There is not error message telling me I'm not connected and there is a check box next to the network I'm on. I'm unsure what's happened but this only started happening as of this evening.

    Have you already tried opening Safari and seeing if there is a 'login' or acceptance sort of page where you've got to tap something to get the connection active?

    Actually no, but it seemed that the network I was on needed me to add my phone to their list of allowed users. It was odd that I hadn't received any error message though.

    So it worked out for you? If so, cool.

    And yeah, I've seen a number of WiFi networks where the only way you get an indication that you're not quite really connected is by trying to open a page in the browser, and then seeing a prompt that otherwise was not showing up ...

    Both these sound like a wifi issue I had recently. Basically the phone believed it was connected but was only intermittently showing the wifi symbol and wouldn't connect to the internet unless I turned off wifi. Out of the blue the iPod made it reset the other day, and then the wifi worked great. So try rebooting or resetting and see if that helps.

    I will try the reboot and reset. I didn't get any such prompts, but we'll see. It was really only when I attempted to connect to a particular network. I am good to go at home.

    I'm connected to a wireless network as proven by going into my network settings and the speed of webpage loads, but the "E" icon still shows in the notification area. Strange!
