    Hello, I just got a iPhone 4s from ebay unlocked. I installed my T-mobile sim and we are off !!! Problem that i ran into is when i try to setup the wifi the wheel spins but it never finds a network. I know my network is ok cause my ipad air and MBP connect just fine, So just to be sure I reboot the network, Nothing I reset the network settings, also nothing.. Someone told me that I mite have to open it and replace the antenna but before I order a new antenna i wanted to see what you guys think.

    Thank you for reading my thread.

    The WiFi specs for the 4s say this: 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi (802.11n 2.4GHz only)

    Are you operating an AC wireless only network?

    You might have bought a defective iphone.
    Test it out and try to connect to a few other wifi's also.
    If nothing happens then I'd return it to the seller and get your money back.
    Wifi is important.

    Yep, then its a hardware problem with that iphone 4S.
    I'd contact the ebay seller and ask for a refund.
