A friend of me gave me his old iPhone 3G. I do not wish to use it as a phone at all. Rather, I'd love to use it like an iPod Touch. Though, neither my wifi detection or connectivity seems to have even a glimpse of functionality. I've tried all of the little tricks - reset netword settings, reboot, update/downgrade, full restore, erase all content, play with roaming/3G/data settings - but still, nothing. The other day, I went into the Apple Store. The "genius" told me that it was a "hardware" issue upon hearing the above explanation. He didn't look at it or anything. Another friend of mine is confident that there's a way to repair it. So, I called Apple's technical support, and before they told me they were going to charge me to assess, they said that there were "a few things" that could be at the source of this problem. PLEASE! Do you have any help for me? I would REALLY appreciate it. Do you know that these issues might be rooted to? Thank you!
