This might be the reason to get one to my wife... (thought I always wanted for me)... it has the bands necessary for her carrier, not mine... And this with full combo (tablet-keyboard) might replace her needs for a notebook...

I am experiencing problems with my Padfone after the update i.e
1) Google Play Store and Google+ stops working all together,
2) after a week, my Padfone now cannot access my WEP-secured home wi-fi despite my resetting the connection (all my other devices can access it ok). Nor can it access any wi-fi connections that I previously had no problems with
3) prior to my being shut off from wi-fi, there were times when YouTube will stop for no reason at all.

I have written to Asus Tech Support but have yet to receive any help.
Am I the only one with these problems? Do I need to factory reset my Padfone as suggested by some Android forums?
