    Can anyone figure out why my UMA goes back to EDGE for no apparent reason? I usually fix it by either restarting or jus unchecking and checking the wifi box again. But really why would I lose my connectiong to UMA (usually happens when I wake up)

    Please help me. Thanks!

    I just noticed mine did the same thing this morning. However, I did the battery pull, switched Wifi to off, and then on again, and it is still stuck on EDGE and won't switch to UMA.

    I went into my wifi settings and noticed my router signal is a bit weak this morning. It may be that when the signal isn't strong enough the phone is unable to hang onto the wireless signal and switches over to EDGE a bit more. Just a thought, but I am anxious for any other feedback as well.

    Yup! I have mine set for "Wifi Preferred." I am sure that my problem was a weak signal from the router, however, this may not be the OP's problem. Thanks for the tip!

    Then I'd have to switch it manually everytime I leave my house Or wifi area?

    Did you try restarting the router?

    Just unplug it, wait 10sec, plug it back in

    Actually, 99% of the time, just unplugging your router doesn't do much. In order to 'reset' a router, you need to keep it plugged in and press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds. This is true with Linksys along with many other manufacturers.

    If all you do is unplug it, your router will still have the same settings as before.

    I disagree with this. I think you would be surprised at how many times cycling the power on the router fixes the issue a user is having.

    Reset or Reboot. I have always thought of these as 2 different things.

    Reset, means you reset back to factory.

    Reboot means you power cycle to clear errors.

    Just my 2 cents.
