Read a lot of thread regarding their disappointments with iOS6. Unfortunately, I haven't read any statements from apple. I just read a few new threads and deleted few emails and I was suprised to notice that the battery of my iPhone is just 86% from 98%. I did not play any video or songs. :-( im planning to reset my apple gadgets and maybe convert it back to iOS5. Thanks for sharing your problems and I will notify you if I have come across a solution.

Apple - Fix this!!!!!!
Apple, THIS IS WHERE YOU NEED TO LOOK on iOS 6 regarding "WIFI Lockout"!!!!!!
When this happens (WIFI freezes up aka "WIFI Lockout") – you can not get on internet while using WIFI!!!!!
You could be in the middle of surfing or using any app that makes data calls based on DNS and suddenly you can go no where or do nothing!
Yea sure, you can restart the WIFI connection, but WHO wants to CONTINUALLY do that?????
Apple (or any curious iOS 6 user that wants to see my point), when this happens open up a browser before you reset, disconnect/reconnect WIFI ( I tried both safari and chrome ) and type type 188.8.131.52 (google) and then “go”. A google search page will come up and you will be able to execute a search. (of course any link you click on will not work as it is dependant on DNS resolution)
Non DNS traffic works so the issue is not the WIFI connection to the access point!
APPLE, FOCUS ON FIXING THIS DNS DATA ISSUE AND YOU WILL GET MANY PEOPLE OFF YOU BACK!!!!
I KNOW THIS IS NOT ALL OF THE PROBLEMS WITH iOS 6, BUT THIS IS A HUGE PROBLEM NOT BEING ABLE TO SURF OR GET DATA THE iOS 6 DEVICE IS REQUESTING!!!!!

There's an iOS6 bug where the music/video/game volume is controlling the alert volume instead of the normal alert volume setting.
To work around this, go into the Music app, and set the volume to maximum. Exit out, and now your alert volume will be better.

Seems like i'm the only one with a huge problem.
All my aps and programs closes themsefs after aprox 1-2 minutes.
The only program i can have open longer is the "Call" app.
Messages, email, maps, newsstand and ALL my other apps and program closes after 1-2 mins.
And allso the battery drains like a sink.
Charged to 100% this night, and after recieving 2 phonecalls (total 5 mins) and checked my e-mail once. The battery is now (4 hours later) 61%.
Is there a way to go back to 5.1.1, og make a new install of iOS 6?
I have made a reset, cleaned out my phone, all i can think of.

I have encountered many bugs since my upgrade to iOS 6.
1) no wifi connection (i have also tried to change the DNS, but i still could not use many apps like "Weather", Maps, Mail, SIRI etc.
2) SIRI does not work properly, but only sometimes, after repeating the same commands several times. SIRI does not work at all wih a bluetooth headset.
3) The downloads from the apple store are stucked and it is not possible to restore them.
4) My gmail account receiveis e-mails (with 3G connetion), but is not allowed to send any.
I have restored my iphone (4S) with the last backup, but nothing did change.
What can i do now?

I also have big problems about ios 6.
when will apple help us?
1- all my applications closes thems self in 1-2 minutes after using them. I can not use any application more than 1-2 minutes.
2- my battery drains to fast. I fully charged it. After 20 minutes it is less than %90.
and other same problems. These are the most important ones.

Your issue with FaceTime (#6) is what I've noticed the most. The noise cancellation in iOS 6 is way too aggressive for FaceTime and I would rather have the option to turn it on or off, or even a slider with notches for off/low/high.
FWIW, using Skype bypasses the noise cancellation so that has been an alternative solution for now, but I definitely think that the iOS upgrade has screwed up FaceTime and made it much more difficult to hear what's being said on the other end unless talking loudly.
You would think that the Apple people would have tested the noise cancellation with each other in FaceTime to see if they could actually hear one another without repeatedly saying, "What was that?"
