I have two WLAN networks available. To switch between them I can

  • disable WLAN and than enable WLAN again, if the other network has higher signal strength
  • disable the current network and enable the new network

I found no way to directly switch to a new network. And if I first enable the new network I get a "Problem with connection" message or one of the networks is in state "Connecting ..." and I need to disable WLAN and than enable WLAN again.

If WLAN is disabled I can't toggle single networks but long press allowes to "Forget network".

This is a known issue and will be fixed in a future update. You should be able to click on your wlan service of choice, it will disable the current wlan, enable and connect to that one.

Thank you and sorry for the trouble.

On the main home screen (directly after unlock) there are a number of icons next to the clock (picture as below, icons highlighted in green):

What I'd quite like to see is for these icons to be active, so if I were to click (for example) the WLAN icon then it gives me the options to switch between internet connections (either different wifi networks, or 3G/4G (when it launches)). Ditto to use the sound icon to toggle sound on/off.
