    I don't wanna spark up an argument of what's at fault, HW, SW, network. After no consumer knows for sure. I just posted a workaround to a problem. That's all. If it can benefit ONE user, I'm happy.

    There's plenty of people who don't want the new iOS 7 and will gladly keep 6. And if they happen to have the same problem, here's the solution.

    Just a quick update to my original post of Sept 2013.  I traveled around the U.S. with my iPhone5 and had the same problem everywhere: San Francisco, Washington DC, Austin, Salt Lake, Denver, etc.  I took my i5 to the Apple Store near my home and they ran complete diagnostics.  They could find no evidence of dropped calls or other issues (their software tracks dropped calls among the many statistics), but they could see I was getting no cell reception and having trouble connecting to their in-store wifi.  They replaced my phone with a new i5.  The cell and wifi was immediately improved a little bit, but I still cannot enable LTE without losing both cell and wifi, and often I lose wifi connectivity even when standing a few feet in front of the router.  I live with 3 others who all have the iPhone4s, and none of them have any such problems.  All four of us are on Verizon.  Hmmm.

    FWIW, my iPhone 5 (7.0.4) has absolutely no WiFi or non-LTE signal problems. The only issues I experience are areas with poor LTE performance and signal strength, which can easily be replicated with every other phone in Verizon's arsenal (I have not done any testing w/ the AWS-enabled phones to see if the performance issues are better since AWS is not overcongested - yet)

    same problem as the OP.  I hadnt yet associated it with wifi but once he mentions it, I am on wifi at home.  If I leave to go for a walk, I get no internet/safari unless I disable LTE.  I turn LTE off and web pages load again. 

     

    ATT and iPhone 5 fwiw.  Sad the problem is still front and center after this length of time.  Certainly annoying.  I'm OCD and anal as **** and always worry I'm going to forget to re enable LTE.  I guess it doesn't really matter though considering it just gets turned off again.

     

    Sigh
