    I have another question. This time it's about WiFi. I am able to get connected at home (I have a Linksys wireless router for my home network) with no problem but when I am out and about in areas I know there is WiFi, I can not get connected. Any suggestions as to what I may be doing wrong?

    Are you sure these 'outside' networks are open? Perhaps do you have another wireless device you can try and connect?

    It is easy they are protected networks, or something else.

    When I first attempted to connect to my home WiFi, I had to reset the router.
    So unless you can do that to these outside networks, it is somewhat futile.

    Let me Clarify

    I didn't give you all the information. Yes the networks are open that I am trying. I am using one at work that I have connected to countless number of times with my laptop. When I join the netwrok I put my password in and I get a message back on my Touch screen "Safari can't open the page because it can't find the server" Never have that problem with my home netwrok and the same web Pges

    Same here...

    Same problem with me. Requested networks are not locked yet, no internet access is available. Any solution yet Fatyank?
