Find that the wifi on your iPhone isn't staying connected? Here's a fix.

If your Wi-Fi doesn't automatically join or it disconnects after some time (most commonly seen after resetting network settings) try this. Credit to a poster in a forum for this
1. Turn on Wi-Fi and Ask to Join Networks
2. Press the Home Button
3. Launch Safari
4. Wait til the network list opens up
5. Press the network that you want to stay connected to
Now the phone will automatically connect to it if you are within range and have wi-fi turned on. Not everyone has this problem so please no negative comments.

What if it connects fine but just doesn't have any data when connected?

Tried it, Still nothing bro.
Usually a restart tends to fix it but its a pain.
6.0.1 didn't fix it either.

I think it's the chip. Everything else connects and stays connected fine to my wifi.
It does the same on a bunch of different wifi networks too.
McDonald's, Starbucks etc...
