    Can not connect to Public Wifi's

    I have a payasyougo smart phone and had no trouble connecting to public wifi's but then my iphone broke. The wife gave me her old Samsung S3 and it's as new. It works fine on our talktalk wifi but wont work on public wifi. It either says the wifi is slow or unstable and it disables a good strong signal.I have set the phone back to factory default settings as well , got the same result. Anyone got any ideas .My service provider is Vodaphone.

    Welcome to the forum Clive! Are you experiencing this on ALL public WiFi locations, or just one in particular? Have you tried "forget" or disable the particular WiFi access point you're having a problem with, reboot your device and then reapply the password? Worth a shot!
    I don't use public WiFi very often so hopefully one of our more knowledgeable members can weigh in.

    Welcome to the forum Clive!
    Something else to check would be under Wi-Fi settings. see if the auto network switch is unchecked. Maybe also look at the "Auto connect option. I have mine unchecked on both of these. I also do not have any issues with Wi-Fi connections.

    Good luck!
