    I have the same hardware before the release of iOS 6 and none of it works properly. There is a bug in the software. It's not the hardware.

    It helps at home for sure.

    But what if you are on a public wlan.

     

    We can't expect system admins at work or schools to go round and update or change their routers!

     

    The phones should work on all current standards.

     

    I have also got my service provider to wave any data fees for this month since I am forced to use LTE / 3G\

    Worth a try for anyone that has this issue.

    In the case of a connector not being properly connected then the production week won't matter.
    Some of the parts are connected by hand.

     

    Its not down to when it was done. It's down to who did it and how well they did it which makes it harder to track to a batch - since it will be case by case.

    it seems to me that Apple is now falling prey to its own success as did HP, Dell, Microsoft and a few other who's demand to mass produce millions of products in a short time... quality control suffers and ultimately the products being produced suffers.  Ive owed Apple products since 2006 and as the years have progressed and the demand rises there has been more and more issues with every production year.  Apple needs to slow down a bit... Ive already come to expect issue with every new iphone produced and ive had them all!

    Hi Everyone,

     

    i have posted on the IPAD forum and now i'll post it here on the Iphone 4s with IOS6 upgrade

     

    Go to Settings, General, About

    Scroll down till you see Modem Firmware

    Reply Back with your Modem Firmware

    Modem Firmware: 04.12.02

     

    If your Modem Firmware is LESS than the above, then you have the same problem as myself and many others with Wireless Connectivity issues to WAP's

     

    It is my understanding, unless im proven wrong by anyone with my above findings, this can only be fixed by APPLE. I have reported this as a BUG
