    Hey Guys. I have a Focus on the At&t network and I tried the talk to text today, which i use all the time, and it says it cannot connect to network. I spoke with my mom who has a Focus flash on the At&t network and she has been having the same issue since yesterday. Has there been any one else running in to this issue? is there a fix?

    That is weird, maybe it is a regional thing? I'm in West Virginia maybe because of the APN's I use to connect.

    I noticed this yesterday afternoon (Nashua, NH) and thought it had something to do with the update I pushed onto my phone. However I just verified today that a phone that has not been updated also has this issue.

    I have had this problem on AT&T all day long. Traveling from Oklahoma City to Kansas City. I assumed maybe I was having connection problems, but now that I'm in KC with excellent reception (cellular and wifi) it still does not work and tells me it can't connect to the server.

    Used it for the first time yesterday; no problem in CT. The problems you are experiencing seem to be spread out geographicly so I doubt it is any one issue. It could be downed tower, poor location and maybe even low battery.

    Unless all the towers between Oklahoma City and Kansas City are down, I doubt that's an issue. My phone was plugged in each time. So that's not an issue. And I've tried with full bars with same result. Also should not be an issue.

    Just so everyone is clear, this is only an issue for me when using Cellular Data. If I'm using WiFi then it works just fine.

    I take that back. Am now wifi connected and still getting "couldn't connect". Turned wifi off and it worked over cellular. Turned wifi back on and got "couldn't connect". So to spam the thread with updates, I get the same "couldn't connect" sporadically on either wifi or cellular.

    Focus Flash AT&T via Net10 Sim Card Location West Texas

    was not working at all yesterday both wifi and cell data

    Wifi is working today, no problems when speech searching etc. " Find Whatever"

    Cell Data not working "We can't connect to search right now" Check your cell data or wifi connection

    No problems with any other Speech Command..Speech To text is working..But "Find or Search does not over cell data connect". Wifi Works just fine..

    Wonder if it is a AT&T network problem..

    I have a Verizon Trophy and it was working flawlessly today. I just double-checked and it is still working. Sounds like it may be an AT&T issue. I am in Waco, Texas, if that helps anyone.

    My Focus and a friends tell me does not work on ATT 3G, but works over WiFi, my mom has a Trophy, it does not work on 3g but does on wifi, we are in the Pittsburgh area. My brother has a Trophy, he's in the Washington DC area and his tell me works over 3g. I think the problem is on MS end.

    Mine stopped working yesterday and no amount of restarting the phone helped.

    After reading some people who had it work or not work on Wifi I did the following.

    Turned on Wifi and connected to my home network.
    Attempted to send a text message using voice - Was able to connect to the server and recoginize my voice.
    Turned Wifi off
    Attempted to send a text message using voice - Was able to connect to the server and recoginize my voice.


    Maybe somehow the IP addresses the phone uses to connect to the Tellme server got corrupted and connecting using Wifi cleans it up?
