    Any specific information as to what the actual problem is or what you've already tried would also be helpful.

    Use a blow dryer and slowly heat up the phone from the back side(apple logo). Once the phone shows the heat warning must cool down turn off the phone and wait till the phone is completely cooled down and it will work.

    Yes. And right after the Mic, straight in the freezer for 30 minutes tops:D
    Serve chilled with chocolate fudge and sprinkles.

    My 4S Wifi just stopped working one day. AppleCare said the chip was bad and replaced the phone.

    I had a replacement 4s about two years ago that the wifi stopped working. I had apple care so just got it replaced. It seems to be a relatively common issue with that model. Hope you can get it fixed somehow. Croatia is a beautiful country, by the way! :)

    ios 8.1 does not makes it work slow.
    Your phone has a hardware problem, you don't get that yet?

    Rob, if the blowdryer trick did not work, then you certainly have a problem with a wifi. The repair should cost around 30e in your country.
    I had the similar problem, and the blowdryer trick works for now, but the thing is that I don't keep the wifi turned on if it is not necessary.
    Btw. did you do it again after installing the ios 8.1 ?
