Hi there,Go to Settings>Wi-fi, tap Menu>Advanced, and see if you have an option for "Avoid Weak Signal." Uncheck it if it's present.
Well, it's not a weak wi-fi signal I'm trying to avoid. It's a weak 4G signal. See, they just completed a new highway close to my house and along this highway is a new cell tower. It's about a mile and a half from me. But did my Verizon signal get any better? Not a bit. So I'm stuck in this 4G dead zone. I can barely get a call or text to go through on any of our cells. We had to reactivate our land line just to make sure we have a phone that always works. But I digress...
The point is, while there isn't much we can do about the poor phone service, I would at least like to be able to have the phones do the wi-fi instead of the lousy cell signal so I can communicate with work and my wife can occasionally attempt to satisfy her Facebook addiction. I see how to turn off data usage so the device will still do calls and text but will use only wi-fi for data. That's fine when we're at the house or at work but outside of that, no data so you have to go back in and turn it on. I was hoping there was some hidden setting that would make the device use wi-fi if it's available but switch back to 4G if not.
