    Interesting that I was having the same problem when trying to use my phone in a huge mall where I do my daily walk. In a major metropolitan signal area.
    At home...always automatically connects to WiFi...Everywhere else, car, etc., data is 4G...In the mall, evidently the data signal is not too good because there are numerous active WiFi sites running..
    The phone does auto connect to the guest open access but goes nowhere.
    Just today, one of the mall personnel showed me that with WiFi on and connected, I must open Google first and then go to my choice of browser...and it works.
    Have no idea why...

    Welcome to Android Central! You're typing in a search term in the Google search bar on the homescreen? What happens if you open the Browser instead (or Chrome, or whatever browser you prefer), and enter an address in the URL bar of the browser?

    just turned the phone on today to try different things . Makes no difference phone still says unavailable . If i type in the search bar on home screen and enter i get to pick either browser or chrome .I pick browser and it says unavailable or site has moved . If i go to settings pick browser or google nothing happens either

    But what I'm asking is what happens if you DON'T use the Google search bar on the homescreen, and instead open the Browser first and enter a URL there? Still doesn't work?
