    2 Issues I'm having......

    1. My phone is having a hard time connecting back to wifi in my house. I'd connect originally type password in and then it works fine but as soon as its disconnected or my phone goes off I have to go back in an type the password in. If I leave the house and come back I have to do the same. Before on the iPhone 4 the phone would automatically connect no matter what.

    2. text messages. Before if i was in the middle of a text and a new text came in the phone would make the sound and the number 1 would show up in left hand corner, now the freakin banner comes down at the top which is never did before. On iPhone 4 the banner only came down if I wasn't already in the text message app.

    anyone know how to fix it or if anyone else is experiencing the same issue.
    thanks in advance

    Regarding number 1,

    1. Turn off WiFi
    2. Turn on WiFi
    3. Select "Other" - not YOUR network
    4. Manually type in YOUR network name
    5. Select the password type and then enter your password

    Let us know if this works.

    Yeah this is annoying. If anyone knows a fix for this that'd be great... but I'm thinking there isn't one. :(

    #2 is quite annoying. I guess it's in iOS 6 thing that I hope gets fixed.
