Try removing the app and reinstalling it on your wife's phone.
You can also try Resetting Network Settings on the iPhone, go to Settings> General> Reset> Reset Network Settings.
Make sure both the iPhone and scrabble are updated with the latest versions of software available.
If there is an update for scrabble you can get it from the App Store on the iPhone.
This article: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1702 provides general tips for troubleshooting issues with apps.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 31, 2008 6:49 PM (in response to Jason L)Thanks, Jason. We both have the updated software, both for the iPhone and for Scrabble. I reset the Network Settings on both phones. They connect in multiplayer and the connection will hold for 3-4 turns, but then it always quits. I'll try uninstalling and reinstalling on both of them again tomorrow.
I appreciate the prompt response. Happy New Year!iPhone 3G v. 2.2, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 1, 2009 8:19 AM (in response to Jason L)I'm afraid that none of the suggestions worked. Evidently, something is just interfering with the connection between our phones. Could this be caused by security setting on the Airport Express or anything? Both phones successfully connect to the WiFi network. I'm starting to wonder if one of them doesn't have a problem with its wireless network card or something...
Any other suggestions?Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 1, 2009 9:19 AM (in response to Jason L)Sorry to keep answering myself here, but I figured out that it is the Airport Express or one of the settings we're using for the network that is preventing the game from working. I created an Ad Hoc wireless network on my laptop and we can connect and play through that without a problem...
The other network that we tried it on was configured the same was as the one here that is causing the problem. Any idea what the problematic setting might be?

Currently Being ModeratedJan 22, 2009 6:56 PM (in response to ClayH)Clay, did you ever figure out how to resolve this issue? My wife and I have the EXACT same issue and it is VERY annoying. We don't lose wifi connection on the browser or any other apps, so clearly this is a Scrabble issue, possibly in conjunction with router settings...MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

Currently Being ModeratedJan 27, 2009 10:48 AM (in response to Kims50)P.S. Like Clay, I set up an Ad Hoc wireless network on my laptop and we can play with no lost connections. Perhaps someone has an easier solution.Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2009 11:49 AM (in response to Kims50)i was able to create an ad hoc network and play multiplayer without any problems, but i'd still like to be able to use the multiplayer without having to always establish an ad hoc network. i never have any troubles with my iphone when it joins my wifi network - are there things i can change within my network configurations to allow for us to play without the connection always being lost over the normal wifi network?Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 4, 2009 6:25 AM (in response to zp74)I'am having the same issue, it will connect for a few turns then disconnect. I really don't want to setup a ad hoc network just to play this game on my local network. Does anyone know if there is a fix? If not any way to get your money back?
