    I currently have an Iphone 4s. With my old Iphone 4 at work I would always get reception with always at least 3-4 bars and always be able to connect to the internet. But with the 4s, I have the same 3-full bars. But every time I try to connect to the internet, it would not. I tried using safari, netflix, etc. I just see the connection thingy spinning but I can't load a page so I set it there and the battery drains (like crazy) trying to connect. With the 4, I never had the issue. So at work, my battery drains to almost down to 20% by the time I am ready to leave work. The weird thing is when I get out of my building, I seem to get reception. What do you guys think? Genius bar? Please keep in mind the status is showing always at least 3 bars.

    Have you tried Reset Network Settings or reseting the phone?

    How do you reset network settings? When you say resetting the phone do you mean holding down the home and lock button, soft reset? I only did the soft reset.
