I have an unlocked 1.1.1 using a T-Mobile sim in Florida. I have come home to Ireland for Christmas and Im now using my O2.ie sim card.
However my WiFi doesnt work now. It connects to my network in my house and shows full signal strength but when I press Safari I get a pop up saying "Safari cant open the page because it cant find the server"
How do I get my WiFi working ?

I was using an Irish o2 sim until recently (my phone broke- but that's another story) without problems.
When this message comes up is it still connected to the wifi, or is it point at EDGE?
Are you absolutely sure there is no problem with your wifi network? It sounds like it is blocked for some reason?

Thanks for the replies.
I have an IP address of 169.254.X.X in the phone.
I tried changing that IP address to the IP address of my router. But, Phone still showing connected to wireless network but cant find the server.
My wireless network is working fine as Im on it right now on my laptop.

In this case, somethings wrong with your DHCP settings. Is your security on? And if so, is it set to WEP? You can also try, on your router, to switch from DHCP to static IP assignments. That way you'll be able to configure the IP, Gateway and DNS settings on your iphone to that of your router.Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

I have an identical issue.
I just bought a brand new 1.1.1 unlocked by the seller via downgrading to 1.0.2 then back up to 1.1.1 and probably using AnySim as it is on the dashboard. Also I set it up to my home wifi with WEP password and everything but after it connects ok I cannot browse as it says - cannot find site on server as our friend up here. I have a laptop that also shares the connection. HOwever I checked the IPs ahd the one of the laptop is competely different from the iphone one (laptop starts with 192.etc and the iphone starts with 169 etc like up.
I will have to try the static IP thing I suppose.
I live in Malta, Europe. I put my sim and I can call and send sms I just have the country code issue that I think can be solved right?
Thanks in advance and happy Christmas to all
