    Hi so had my retina mini wifi+cellular a couple days now currently still on 7.0.4. Background of iPad 3 and iPhones.

    So a couple of times a day when loading safari page or YouTube video it freezes loading, I've tried closing the application but that doesn't work, only thing that works is a hard reset (sleep and home button for couple seconds)

    Any ideas it's started to get annoying, thought it was a one off the first time. iPad 3 and iPhone 5 on same wifi work fine.

    I'd say try upgrading to the latest firmware.

    I'm not really wanting to upgrade, going to jailbreak it as soon as I'm happy with its stability but not too impressed right now. I should maybe have stated that in my op

    Hmmmm. Can you erase everything and set it up as new?

    Have you tried the following?:

    1) Power off wifi router for 1 min turn back on. (reboot)

    2) Hardware reset (home + power buttons)

    3) Reset network settings only

    ive learnt by experience that more often than not it's the router's issue.
    they dont make them like they used to - they typically only live for 2/3 years nowadays

    That's been my experience as well. I've gone trouble free with my routers for 2-3 years and after the 2nd year, I find I have to reset it and a regular basis because the wifi quits working properly or hangs.

    It's a brand new router.

    I had another couple freezing issues so I did the router reboot, iPad reset and then network reset so will see how that goes, if that doesn't work I'm at a loss

    Alright back again, I've given it a couple days and did the whole reset network settings, router and check all the router settings, 2 iPhones and another iPad all working fine off the same router. It got to the point I was better off using cellular sitting in the house instead of having to deal with wifi.

    What can I do now, take it back. Book a Genius appointment, do I have to do that online?

    What are the chances it's got something to do with iOS 7.0.4 and I'll get told to upgrade, can I decline the upgrade?

    I think upgrading is the first thing they would recommend, simply because that is step 1 in troubleshooting any technical problem. If you decline to upgrade, they won't help you, because they can't perform all the troubleshooting steps they need to.
