do you have a

taskiller

battery/juice defender

antivirus app installed?

if you do, uninstall them, you do NOT need them at all

Re: The wifi on my LT18i wont turn on, wth do I do?

also go to settings -> about phone which Android version and Build number do you have?

if the problem persists even after uninstalling taskillers, battery defender and/or antivirus, backup everything and repair your phone with PCC or SUS

JUST rebooted the system, so none of those apps installed... I am in quite the trouble, already started finding offers on other phones.

I'm assuming you did so by using PCC or SUS? are you using a custom ROM? do you have a protecting case?
