    Well so far loving the iPhone5 - one issue with wifi... as follows.

    Wifi signal on the phone is always showing as one bar - even when next to the router - happens at home, also at work, in fact anywhere I connect to wifi.

    As far as I can tell it's running 'through' fine - a speedtest just now confirmed the speeds I expect from my home router.

    It happened last week after approx. 1 week ownership and a reboot of the phone solved the issue for about 5 days... and now it's doing the same thing again.

    So to be clear, the wifi icon is showing constantly one bar, yet the wifi works fine ??!

    I have seen other people reporting wifi issues, so I assume I'm not the only one with this, although haven't seen it mentioned yet.

    Well, I swapped the phone at the genius bar a week ago - now one week later with the new phone the problem has returned !

    It cannot be just me?

    Some people have been reporting: No WIFI, Slow WIFI, Dropped WIFI..

    It isn't really confirmed if it's hardware or software yet.. Although, I read from numerous reports that 6.0.1 will address WIFI issues as well as other bug fixes.
