Hi Jacque,

Any of those error codes (6, 7 or 35) are reasonable if you are 
operating in an area with a really poor connection.

When you are operating on a public wifi, it could have a lot to do with 
how the wifi is configured, as Bob mentioned below.  How these are 
configured can vary greatly.

Depending on how far you want to go with testing, you could try see if 
your app can communicate with other sites when at these coffee shops.  
Does it only have trouble with HTTPS sites, or just certain sites?  If 
you browse to a site first with Chrome, does your app then work 
afterwards?  Does it have trouble if you try connect via the IP address 
rather than the hostname?
