    Hi Community,

    Some background:

    I got my Nokia Lumia 925 from AT&T, but I live in Trinidad. While the phone was in the US, it connected to wifi, installed updates etc. When the phone was brought to Trinidad, it no longer discovers wifi networks. It just says "searching" and stays there.

    I've tried in multiple areas and made adjustments to my modem and router but nothing seems to work. When I switch on the wifi and it begins "searching" no available networks show up and I can't even switch the wifi off. It's like the slide is stuck.

    Can anyone assist with this or give some suggestions on what to do?

    Have you changed the region of your phone to Trinidad?

    Settings -> language + region

    Yes I have. I've actually tried several things so far. I did a factory reset, I tried using mobile data (this doesn't work either). Otherwise the phone works normally.

    Same exact issue except I'm in the US with a phone bought brand new from the carrier store.

    My phones stays on the Wi-fi searching status forever with blue dots going across the top of the screen. I tried:

    1) hard reset multiple times
    2) soft reset multiple times
    3) toggling airplane mode
    4) toggling this and that etc

    I saw other threads of people experiencing the same issue yet nobody was ever able to provide an actual solution. I find it ironic I am forced to download phone updates over wi-fi yet I can't connect to wifi. About to just get rid of this phone, had it up to here between the constant battery issues (16% discharge per hour LOL), phone overheating, and now this.

    I have the same exact problem. I left the country on vacation, like the original poster. I never had issues with wifi, and it worked fine there for a while. Somewhere along the way, it stopped working.

    I'm back in the US now, and have been troubleshooting all day. Did a factory reset, and on a Developer's account so I could try to update to 8.1, to see if that would help.

    No wifi, no bluetooth. I'm more interested in getting wifi going. The 5 blue dots just stream on the page but I never see available networks and the wifi icon never appears across the top.

    I have rebooted about 20 or more times today... on 2 occasions I got wifi to work for a bit.

    Of course, I can only update so far, because the 8.1 update can only be installed when your phone is connected to wifi.

    I have a problem with my Lumia 925, i've had it for a couple of years now and have used it in europe, us and china with no problems. As of last week, my phones wifi has been unable to detect my office wifi. All other wifi's are detected except my office's, none of my co-workers have this issue. Also I have no issues to connect with my other favourite wifi's. I have tried multiple soft resets, changing regions..etc..please assist.
