    I upgraded my phone to IOS 6 (mistake) and have run into a problem doing a soft reset.

    At night there is a tendency for me to lose my wifi signal and revert to 3G. (why this happens is another issue). What I previously did was press the home button and the power button until I got the slide bar on the screen to turn off or the cancel option on the bottom. I chose CANCEL, and my phone would go back to wifi.

    It happened last night but when I did what I usually do it did not bring me that screen. I tried several times and nothing. I ended up holding the buttons down and after about 10-15 seconds the phone turned off, I got the white apple and then the phone came back on with wifi.

    What happened to this option? Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Don't you usually get the cancel option only when you hold the top button only?

    I had always been told to hold both buttons so that is what I had been doing and it worked fine. After iOS6 it didn't.

    After I read this last night I tried just the top button as you said and Voila! it worked! So who knows.

    Thanks though, I didn't know that.

    Sorry to hear. I have not had any problems with how my phone works. I figured out my problem so aside from not liking the looks of things, Im' ok.
