    iPhone wifi not working

    I purchased this iPhone brand new a few months ago and until now everything was working perfectly. Out of nowhere my iPhone stopped detecting wifi networks. :( I've tried resetting it and manually configuring wifi setting, but nothing works. Does anyone else have this problem? I took it to the apple store in town and they said for $110 they would give me the exact same model brand new, no questions asked. I want to be sure before I spend the money.

    If you purchased it brand new a few months ago and there's no physical or liquid damage then Apple should replace it for free.

    It sounds like your Wifi cable could be disconnected or damaged. Sometimes dropping the device, or water damage can cause the wifi connection to be faulty.

    If you open up your device you should be able to see if this is the case. If you are unfamiliar with iPhone hardware I'd recommend taking Apple's offer and getting a new device.

    The only issue there is it was purchased while I was overseas. So I'd have to go replace it there. At least that's what the store said when they looked up my device info.

    That sucks.
    There's no official apple stores in your country?
