    Well, I was a big fan of ios 7 at first, but I've had many of the same issues that people on this board have been with plagued with.

    Two persistent issues that I can't permanently fix:

    1) My iphone 5 sometimes doesn't connect to my home wi-fi. I have to manually connect it and then enter my password again.

    2) Sometimes iMessage just stops sending messages. I can fix it by resetting network settings which then reboots my phone, but I usually don't notice there's a problem until I haven't received a reply to a text.

    I see others having the same problems but haven't found any permanent fixes.

    To be honest, I'm quite surprised Apple released such buggy software. There are always frustrated users after every update, but this time it seems different. This is the same experience I had when Android started going downhill. I'm hoping Apple acknowledges the problems and sends out some updates soon.

    1. You could try resetting network settings and then joining it again. It might work. Also, reset your router.

    2. Known issue. Expect it to be fixed soon in 7.0.3.

    Apple has already addressed your #2 - 7.0.3 coming late this week or next week

    Have you considered a clean restore to iOS7 ?
    Set up as new, do not restore to backup.

    That has fixed almost everyone's issues.

    I have three iDevices, both on 7.0.2, all done as set up as new, did not restore to any backup and NONE of them has any of the issues mentioned here (once I tweaked the settings correctly)

    I think I will try a clean restore now. I have icloud backup enabled. Can I restore from icloud to get some of the settings/data for apps as well as saved text messages? Or does that defeat the purpose? I really don't want to lose some text messages I have saved.


    Upon further investigation, I think the two issues I listed are related.

    I believe that resetting network settings to fix the imessage issue causes the device to lose all stored wifi passwords. So the imessage fix should hopefully fix both issues because it will no longer be necessary to reset network settings.

    I did my initial iOS 7 upgrade as a clean install.

    I've been having the iMessage problems, as well as now my home network is sometimes having connection problems.

    Correct, every time you reset your network settings, it also resets your passwords.
