    Hey everyone

    I bought a brand new still sealed in box iPhone 3GS from a person on craigslist. I'm really happy with the phone compared to my old 3G, can't believe I've waited this long to upgrade.

    But there is one problem I am experiencing though. When I lock the phone by pressing the power button, then unlock it, and try to use safari via wifi it just won't work. no page will load, even when i try other apps that use the net will not work/load data. What I have to do to fix the problem is turn off the wifi, turn it back on, and it'll work just fine.

    Just to clarify, I haven't been having this issue with my old 3G. The phone came with iPhone OS 3.1.2, but since I am not planning on jailbreaking/unlocking, I've upgraded to 3.1.3 to see if that would fix the problem. But it was a no go..

    Any advice?

    one more thing:

    when i unlock the phone, it does say it's connected to the wifi network, but it will just not load any data/websites. that's when i have to turn off wifi in the settings, and turn it back on.

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    Reset network settings or restore the phone in DFU mode and setup as new.
