    Hi all,

    I have a 32GB black iPhone 5 running 6.0.2.

    Browsing on either 3G or LTE is fine with no lag whatsoever.

    Using wi-fi is another story. On three different wireless networks (each with a different speed, service and router), Safari will sometimes work fine and other times lag tremendously to the point where I would need to stop and refresh the page for it to load.

    Has anyone else had this issue? This happens even when the phone shows a full wi-fi signal.

    Same here.
    Many wifi issues with the i5, it's driving me nuts.
    Usually I restart the phone and starts working ok but it's a pain having to do that 4-5 times a day.

    It seems to be a persistent glitch with iOS 6... nothing you could do really other than trying to reset network settings (Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings). Sometimes that helps with wifi issues.

    Yep. 6.0.1 and 6.0.2 hasn't fixed it.
    I think it's a hardware issue with the early wifi chips.
    I might wait a few months to get a replacement hopefully with no more wifi issues.
    They can't be all iPhone 5's out there like that.

    ive had it happen maybe twice on my phone. and it only happens when i come home and reconnect to my home wifi. a reboot or rejoining of the network fixes it. but again, its only happened twice in the past few months and hasnt happened since 6.0.2.
