Last night I was testing out a high quality mp3 recorder on my phone. It was working fine for a while. Then all of a sudden any file that I recorded
had an error "status=f0xxxxxxx" or something like that.
After a little frustration there, I went to my phone's camcorder to try to find out if the program started malfunctioning. The camcorder worked
fine, just like the mp3 recorder did. But when the recording was complete, I would go to access the file and it said the same thing. The file could
not be accessed, status=f0xxxxxxx or something like that.
I tried everything. It frustrated me quite a bit. It made no sense. Nothing had been changed and the phone was working just fine before.
Then something got me. I turned off the Wi-fi access for the phone.
Wouldn't you know...
The phone's recording started working again.
This was last night everybody. I don't know exactly what happened, but I do know that it's very strange that turning off Wi-fi access allowed my
video and audio recorders to work again - even though when they worked before the Wi-fi was on.
But now I can only use those programs as long as the phone isn't connected to Wi-fi.
This hasn't ever happened before. I repeat, this happened last night.
This "Geo-Fence" technology is already being used. They are just making an announcement because, like they said, they intend to enforce this at
"venues". But more importantly, I think you should realize that law enforcement will have a device that has negative effects on any electronics you
have with you in your vehicle or on your person.
Of course, as long as you are always kind and respectful, this should not be too much of a problem.
Just know that it is already happening. IF you have had problems with your phones before, try disconnecting from the Wi-fi. You will find that some
things will probably work better (if the phone is functioning properly).
