    Default Droid Pro: wifi won't turn on

    Ok so I tried to turn on my WiFi in the settings and it would say turning on then stop and say error. I've restarted my phone, done a factory reset and even used a WiFi fixing app. Anyone know how I can fix this?

    Install the app called "Wifi fixer" through the cellular data. This app will solve all the issues of the wifi connections.

    I have a problem too involving the wifi. My wifi win't turn on. It will just say wifi turning on, but then it will go back to wifi off. And I don't have a cellular data plan. Can anyone help me with this problem?

    I have droid razr m (rooted) version 4.0.4 .... having few issues if anyone could explain to me would be great.
    1...since rooted, phone will not update to 4.1.2 when applying update phone will give verification error... think maybe if i unroot then try. but havent been able to unroot yet.
    2....Wifi has for some reason turned itself off and will not turn back on, tried several times, also tried (factory reset) no results,
    anyone who may have a solution please let me know... thanks for your time.

    (Unrooted) then factory reset... did not help with update or fixing Wi-Fi... out of ideas.

    same exact issue. across 3 separate note 2's one is bone stock, one is rooted stock, and one is rooted and running WICKED stock based ROM from xda.

    all 3 have this issue, even on two different firmware versions. bone stock note 2 is running 4.1.1 still, other 2 are on 4.1.2 firmware. any help would be wonderful.
    also, not sure if you guys are having teh same issue but.... .i cant seem to lock my phone without the screen staying on for 15 seconds or so.

    It has nothing to do with software or firmware. I've reset, factory reset, etc. and it doesn't help. What does help is hitting the back of the phone. There's a bad solder joint or spring connector for the antenna. I've had it fix itself by taking the cover off, but it's faster to just whack the back of the phone against your palm or leg.

    Default Re: Droid Pro: wifi won't turn on

    for me I have to whack it on the front side near the top of the screen. It does get it started but wifi remains wobbly which means getting whatever is loose should be priority no1 as this surely isn't or shouldn't be a permanent fix at least for me...
