First thing’s first, I thought I was viewing a multireddit (a side tab of grouped r/) as I saw a WindowsPhone screenshot. No it’s actually normal reddit and a WP user has posted the image below:

Other WiFi names in this nature alongside “Loading…” include

  • Connecting…
  • Unavailable
  • Network error. Restart phone

Mean WiFi names include “Free WiFi” and either have it locked or no data.

Other things include names of new devices that aren’t launched yet. This was often done at Nokia events (more for Bluetooth names – the old way people used to mess about. I used to send phantom messages in school like that – to the rare few that had bluetooth :/)

Windows Phone is in obvious discussion on this post including Baconit, 6tag and Lumia.
