Why would they turn on wifi during the night? What do they have to gain or potentially lose from this? Fyl.

I hate when people complaining about people complaining about people complaining...just shut the fuck up and thumb them down.

I hate it when people continue things like the above. Just comment on the FML instead of being hypocritical.

They keep students from staying up all night studying. This eventually means students fail. Failing opens room for more students who may be transferring. School makes more money.

This is why I turn my cell data off when I'm on wifi, it saves the battery and prevents this crap from happening.

They could use the early morning hours to do all the in-house service stuff (backing up servers, pushing updates to faculty computers, letting the night security stream porn, etc) so they cut out wifi for the dorms.

define "phone is off", because data has nothing to do with your cell radio, and just putting it to sleep still means the phone is on. you have to turn off data manualy or the data stream will be used regardless of internet activity.

Yeah sorry, I read the FML wrong. I thought after listening to music OP went to sleep but left his phone and data on. I didn't realize he kept streaming music after he fell asleep. Just ignore that last comment.

Like knowing that you can now buy a cheap radio, tune in to local stations and listen all night long. Best part; no wifi needed, works off of radio-land magic. Old school, but no large bill.

Why would you owe the phone company a lot of money. Most plans are unlimited data. Unless you don't have one of those plans I guess.

I don't get it, either. How are you supposed to finish your projects the night before it's due if you can't access the internet?

57 - Some of us work better under pressure. Or at least that's what he tell ourselves. Regardless, students need WiFi at night because projects are inevitably going to be left until the last minute.

Also sue yourself while you're at it. And your phone (the physical phone itself).. and also the court system, for costing you so much money on lawyers!

I don't think you understood the fact that his phone was on Wi-Fi before he went to sleep and that they turned it off overnight.

But Sprint has shitty connection, and yes, I have Sprint so I would know. Lol go with AT&T or something. (: unless it's just me with shitty connection. Someone back me up on this?

I have at&t I and I can say it sucks. Some days I can't make a call to certain other times I can't call period. And once or twice a year I find that people call me but my phone doesn't ring.

I've never had good service with AT&T. Calls constantly cut out or I had really bad reception. As the person above me said, sometimes when people called it wouldn't even ring. The Internet connectivity was virtually non-existant. I had T-Mobile before that - I could be standing ON the cell tower and not get service (though I've heard they've gotten better). I have Verizon now - phenomenal reception and so-so Internet speed.

I think 10 was trying to say to check that if you're on Wi Fi that you're not connected to your phone data too! :) Maybe?

I have been with Sprint for over ten years and have not had any issues with them. The Internet is fast (4G, but still 3G in some places). Signal strength all depends on where you are no matter what company you're with. You could move apartments in the same city and go from great signal to zero signal - this happened to someone I know who has Verizon. Sprint's unlimited data plans are great!
