    iPhone Help

    All of a sudden my daughters iPhone no longer will connect to wifi. Looks to me like all the settings are fine. It seems like it searches for wifi but nothing comes up. I tried resetting the network settings (didn't help). I tried a hard shut down & reboot (nothing). I'm out of ideas.

    is it recognizing the available networks when the wifi button is switched on-on the phone?

    Nope, nothing comes up at all with the wifi button switched on.

    Take it to the apple store and have them look at it. They might be able to resolve the issue as they deal with these devices all day.

    make sure it's off airplane mode and the do not disturb function is in off.

    As far as no networks popping up at all, that's weird. Last time this happened for me, I unplugged the router.

    Last resort, have her make sure that her phone is backed up and sync'd and reset the settings.....but I'd go to Apple first. Just call and reserve an appointment to avoid waiting in line for an hour.

    Re: iPhone Help

    Can you connect to the wifi from other phones, like yours?

    If not then the problem probably isn't on the phone but on the router. I've never heard of iPhones not being able to recognise public networks.

    can you pick up the wireless connection on your phone? If so, and the phone is not in Airplane or DND mode, and resetting did not help I would bring to an apple store; those GENIUSES will know.
