    Hi everyone - im having an issue connecting with my wifi, and I completely deleted and reinstalled the operations system on my imac (which solved the issue) and now, I'm having the same issue with my iPhone. Restoring or updating didnt work with my imac, nor is it working with my iphone. Can any genius here - who knows their stuff - tell me how I can delete the old operating system, and install a fresh version on my iPhone - like i did on my iMac?

    Plug your phone into the computer, open iTunes and push the button marked 'Restore'?

    Yeah, that's just restoring - I want to delete and reinstall the operating system.

    I thought that too, but both devices had the same issue when tethered. Also, no other Apple device, or any other device in the whole house had an issue, except these 2.

    If you want you can put the phone into recovery mode or DFU mode and restore from that.

    You can't delete and reinstall the operating system, you can only restore the iPhone. Have you tried resetting your Network settings on your phone?
