They're both yours? Maybe because there the same game for the same person (you) bought from the same account, they might not connect? Just guessing :)

Have you tried letting it sit there for 5-10 minutes? Even on my wifi, which is excellent, it sometimes takes up to 5 minutes to connect to my friends iPhone. Also, make sure that the person not searching is in a world, and has it visible. It should, by default, be on. But you can check on the menu page right off of the inventory.

...... its not their fault that your wifi router wont let you do LAN hosts... plus the apps are on a no refund market.

Ive tried 9 differnt routers....so that's a non issue...im a network / computer engineer so I'm no moron when it comes to this..and I dont even care so much about a refund I just think their product should work if thwy are selling it. And should also have some sort of support..not to much to ask.

Set up a wifi hotspot with your phone and let the other phone connect to it. This works for me.

My Girlfriend and I both have T-mobile MyTouches and when we try to connect to each other it never works. Its funny because we can both play minecraft off our computers together on the same connection. I have honestly come to the conclusion that specific phones just don't work with this feature. I gave up trying to connect a long time ago.

Check you router make sure it lets your devices connect to each other. I had the same problem and it was the router that didn't let us connect to each other.
Need to put Pocket Edition on my Vending Machine Don't you think?

I had this problem with an iPod and an iPhone. It worked when I started the game on the iPod and started "join a game" which then started the wifi game search. I also started the game on the iPhone, then I let the iphone go to sleep. When I woke the iPhone the iPod suddenly saw it and connected. Now that the connection exists it works no problem, I assume that the IP addresses of the devices is stored(?) so that they can find each other.
