    I had to do it 3 times so far today.

    I brought it to the apple store and they said its a software problem and everyone had to do it but I got a new phone for some other problem and its doing it even worse now.

    I have AT&T. Anyone know anything about this? *sigh*

    Try holding the home and power buttons until it shuts down and then keep holding until the Apple logo appears, then release and wait for boot up.

    Hope this helps :D:D:D

    Are you having issues with your cellular data or with Wi-Fi connection? Resetting network settings does not does not have any bearing on cellular data AFAIK. When you are having connection issues, does it appear you are connected to the network but not to the Internet? How certain are you that the issue lies with the phone and not with your network itself or the environment you are trying to use it in?

    I'm not. That's the thing. I'm usually on LTE though. Wifi works fine.

    The WIFI is definitely a problem and its not just the iPhone 5. My dads iPad mini is also dropping the WIFI whereas other non Apple devices don't have the problem. I don't want to take the phone back just yet but if Apple have released a supposed fix and its not worked, what will they do next via a software patch? It's definitely not the wireless router, it's Apple devices whether software or hardware.

    What exactly is the problem you're having?

    If its with wifi, TONS of people are having wifi problems. Including me.

    If its with your cellular data, you'd have to explain exactly whats happening. It could be on at&t's end. Especially if you have swapped phones, and are constantly having to reset your network settings.

    I have been having to do this several times a day since upgrading to 6.0.2 so I think it's a software issue. Today I downgraded to 6.0.1 (yes, apple is still signing it) so maybe that'll solve it.
