    guess who is confused again? that's right, this guy!

    usually the tv cable goes down, no picture just fuzz but the internet is still up. this morning, both were down (no fuzz on the tv but every station said it was off the air, check back later) and when i tried to surf the web on my smartphone, that was down too. i had data on and kept getting messages saying can't connect.

    why would my smartphone be down when my cable went out? the cable just came back on and everything works again.

    :dontknow:

    and please, don't make a mock of this!

    :bigcry:

    i have one company for cable and a different one for my phone. the smartphone did work to make a call but no data. maybe they both use something that went down. that kind of makes sense.

    there were a couple seconds there when i was thinking something berry berry bad had happened. no connection to the outside world at all is a bit unnerving.
    what i'm supposed to do?
    READ?
    pffffft.

    all i know is that the phone worked and internet surfing on the phone didn't. i called the cable co. to find out what was going on.

    i get wifi from my router but i turned on data and that didn't work either.

    The phone works on LTE or 4G when making calls. It only uses wifi for data.

    Do you get your wi-fi from your cable company or your phone company?

    I dont know if you have a laptop or anything that also uses the wi-fi signal from the router, but I'll assume the phone was fine and the router just needed to be reset. You may have had a power surge?

    but seriously. my smartphone has zero connection (to my knowledge) to my cable. different companies. my cable goes out and then my smartphone can't surf the web. i have no reason to know this stuff as it has never happened before. a reasonable question is why did this happen. as i don't have a 15 year old guy around (unlike gayrypage2), i thought i'd axe youse guys.

    my data and wi-fi didn't work to surf the net on my phone. what's your answer for what happend?
