    My yahoo app starts then within a second blink off. It will stay on with the wfi disabled. Closed everything, emptied cache and rebooted. Same thing.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    When you say rebooted is that a restart or a reset? You could try deleting and reinstalling the app.

    Tried both reset and reboot. Closed all other apps. Deleted all cache. No luck yahoo messenger starts and then blinks off as soon, i believe when it tries to establish an internet connect, as it stays open if thw wfi is turned off.

    It may be a problem with the app itself, have you deleted and reinstalled? Give it a try if you haven't.
