First I should ask, can you not connect to any wifi? Or is it only certain places (home, business, hotel)? If its only your home, check your router settings I guess. I assume you have a current enough router/modem to support the wifi bands the iPhone can connect to.Its terrible. I Can never connect, thus forcing me to use my cell data.
works perfectly on my iPad 3 and iPhone 4...Perhaps it's not the phones fault? I'm not having issues. Why should apple fix something if it's not a widespread problem that's not actually the phones fault? I haven't heard as much negativity about the wifi as I have with other issues so I apologize if this is actually a big deal.
It isn't impacting every phone out there, but there does seem to be an issue.Well go to a store and try a different one. It's obviously not affecting every iPhone out there. You may have gotten a faulty unit.
Ah, I hadn't read any of that. Thanks for the heads up. Mine does seem to want to hang on to a wifi connection longer than it should, but that's about the only thing so far. I've been able to access and keep connection just about everywhere I go. Hopefully, it is just an OS issue then. And hopefully the fix doesn't ruin my wifi afterwards, haha.It isn't impacting every phone out there, but there does seem to be an issue......
My issue has only been with WPA2 AES networks.Never had an issue with wifi. Is it every wifi or just your home wifi? If its just your home wifi, maybe the problem is there.
Since it is happenening on all AP's, you may want to make an appointment at the Genius bar for evaluation. I will see if I can dig up the Apple thread about this topic.Applejuiced said:Its both WPA2 and open wifi connections that does it to.
Did you read my post above?It is only WPA2 AES networks.
WPA2 works with TKIP, but not AES. I read somewhere (I'm sure it was on the 100+ page Apple thread about this issue) that it was Apple's implementation of the protocol.
Changing my network encryption standards seems to be a "workaround" but not a valid fix.
I did, but my original response was to Blorzoga. I edited my initial response to reply to you instead of making a new post, but it looks like you beat me to itDid you read my post above?
It happens to me all the time and not just on WPA2 encrypted wifi's.
Even on open wifi networks, at AT&T, Mcdonalds, dunkin donuts, friends and family members houses. You name it.
Its an issue and I still havent found a solution besides turning off wifi completely and use LTE or HSPA+.
I COMPLETELY understand your frustrations...Sorry.
Its starting to get old, even though I love this phone not be able to do anything at times on wifi its driving me crazy.
Link to Apple discussion thread. Now up to 111 pages.I'm sure it was on the 100+ page Apple thread about this issue.
The thing is some times it does work with no problems and other times same wifi a few hours later nothingI COMPLETELY understand your frustrations...
To top it off, I'm 100% certain that this Wifi issue is absolutely KILLING my battery life...
Try the Genius bar. Examine every replacement device they offer carefully and if it isn't up to standards ask for another. Throughout my issues, the Geniuses have been very understanding and allowed me to personally view 4 phones before finding a suitable replacement. Verify the wifi coverage in store before departing.
I know finding a replacement for a phone that isn't even 3 weeks old is a tough pill to swallow, especially with the recent scruitiny on their QA process. I'm sure it will be resolved with an iOS update, but who knows when that will be...sounds like you at least have LTE. If it's any consolation, I only have 4G
FYI, your IMEI unlock transfers , and the genius should put that screen protector on the new phone (they always do for me anyway).The thing is some times it does work with no problems and other times same wifi a few hours later nothing
Its hard to understand why and how. Im not picky or anal like some people here if I were to get a replacement. As long as it works and looks right I wont get a magnifying glass or a microscope to example every inch.
But Im willing to wait till 6.0.1 to see if they fix it with an update. I heard some iphone 4 and 4S models get it too and all happens on 6.0 when it never happened before for years on the same phone. So I have some hope its an issue that can be corrected with software.
Also I dont feel like wasting time waiting forever at the Apple store, having to replace my screen protector, pay for another imei unlock for my at&t iphone 5
