    No idea. Pre 3 with 2.2.4 here. My only menu modification is for the Flashlight switch. I turn on airplane mode and can still turn on and connect wifi with the usual wifi toggle just fine once airplane mode settles in. Do it all the time actually! (Though of course, it switches off wifi when I first activate airplane mode.)

    exactly !! mine used to do exactly that but no more... Is it a problem with the device menu add-on by SCONIX ?? it's "ADVANCED SYSTEM MENU DEVICE MENU" although I doubt it because it worked fine with that before ...no changes done... ???

    If no one else knows, I'd say it's time to start ripping out patches. Failing that, the Doctor.

    Can you even cycle the wifi in airplane mode? I know once in a while (not in airplane mode) I have to toggle wifi to reconnect.

    I had a similar problem about 5/2013. I was traveling and was trying to use freetether to use my Touchpad but it was cycling the WiFi and not allowing the Touchpad to connect. The WiFi signal at the airport was weak where I was so the Touchpad was running very slowly. Furthermore, I tried connecting the Pre3 to the WiFi network and it wasn't working. No problems with the Touchpad connecting to the airport WiFi - it was just too slow. I tried rebooting a couple of times with no luck. I left it and dealt with the slow connection. I turned off the WiFi during the rest of my trip to save battery and figured I would try to doctor when I got back.

    I forgot to turn on the WiFi after I got back initially, but about 2 weeks later, I turned it on and it seemed to work. I haven't had any problems since. I didn't remove any patches.

    Basically, I don't know what the problem was but it went away on its own. Hopefully, yours will fix itself like mine did.
