Re: Wifi Crashing phone

Ok, kinda got another question really quick on something. I i decided to upgrade to v5.0 for the 9000 which would have to be one of the leaked copys or what ever since ATT wont just let you. With this version does it do any type of pinging or anything that could run up a data bill, since i dont have a data plan on it and only use WiFi for internet.

Re: Wifi Crashing phone

All of the OS run the same so you'll be fine with updating to 5.0. If you don't get charged when you're not running 5.0 then you shouldn't when you upgrade.

Re: Wifi Crashing phone

Did you wipe first and try the wi-fi BEFORE the restore to see if it was working?
