      Buggy radio set. It does not remember chosen settings. “Screen Timeout”, “Display Brightness”, “Wireless Network/Mobile networks/Network Mode and Roaming Guard and Allow GSM Data” settings, probably some more setting are not saved.
      After device re-start: It does not remember last Wi-Fi settings and Network Mode. If there is no Open Wi-Fi after restart Wi-Fi module is not capable to work (“Error” if you try to start it).
      It is not capable to use WAP2 cripted Wi-Fi network.
