Hi guys.

I'm having an unjailbroken iPhone 4S, which is running the pre-installed iOS version --> 5.0.1. Recently I'm having some problems with my network.

Sometimes when I try to use my network (3G or wi-fi), nothing seems to be working. Safari/Twitter/Email/Streaming etc. It says I'm connected, but it doesnt work at all.

After I reset my iPhone (DFU mode), it works fine again.

But this problem seems to be occuring very often, suddenly. At least once a day.

Any help, please.

If you did a DFU, you'd have had to restore. So, I'm assuming you just meant a hard reboot holding home and power?

And a restore from backup is likely not going to get rid of the problem if there's something corrupted causing it. You need to restore and set up as new.

Sorry. Yes I did a normal reboot (power off, power on) and a hard reboot. What will happen if I set my device up as new. Can I still restore from back-up. I dont want to lose all informations and settings. Or shall I just call Apple? :p

No, a restore as new is exactly that, you'd lose settings and such. Any contacts and such store in the cloud would be returned, but not apps, data, settings and such. And Apple usually has you do it as part of troubleshooting, anyway.
