For some reason they won't allow access to PMs until you have a certain number of posts.
Of course those posts are moderated and take time to register.
Then to make matters worse, they always want to handle stuff through PMs, never in the open.

You can get some help, but it's often like pulling teeth.


So, back to your question..
Did you check all the connection settings and verify they match your router?
Specifically WEP/WPA and key length.

I've been working on trying to connect this same exact phone at the office to our router. I can connect my iPad, MacBook Pro and all our iMacs including both my co-workers iPhones to it. No go with this s390g. I've turned wifi on correctly to get the blue icon at the top. It then proceeds to search and find all the networks and I see ours on the list. I click it and I have it set to:

Bearer Type: Wi-Fi
SSID: (my network name)
Auth Type: Open
Encryption Type: WEP
Key Lengh: 64 bits (because our WEP password is 10 digits)
Index ID: 1
Password: (our password)
Protocal: HTTP
Home URL: http://m.tracfone.com
Proxy Address: (I leave this blank)
Linger Time: 300
Ad Hoc: Off

Click Save, then it says Authentication Failed. I've tried multiple variations of this, including removing the battery and card and rebooting phone. Someone please help. Thank you.

I also want to know how many times a customer needs to contact TracFone on these forums before a representative reaches out to help. If anyone could help I would really appreciate it.

A note for board members that are posting trying to get assistance from TracFone. I posted two posts yesterday and received a PM (private message) from a moderator. It said to have the serial # of my phone handy and they can assist me. However, there was an additional instruction that I feel is autogenerated that told me that I needed to post 3 more times to reply to the PM.
