I am in the same position. My iPhone is also a year and a half old. I am running ios 3.1.3 and my Wi-Fi just isn't working at all. I have tried hard resets, resetting the data, everything. It is very frustrating because I have the 2g per month data plan and I keep having to overpay for my data plan because I cannot use Wi-Fi anymore. The iPhone can't even find Wi-Fi spots anymore. I don't want to have apple fix it for $199 because at that rate I would just wait a year for my 2 year contract to run out and get a new iPhone 4. I also don't want to try restoring it to factory settings because then I would be stuck with it on ios 4, which does not bode so well for the iPhone 3g (very slow & unresponsive). Does anyone have some ideas for me?
Thanks for the help. I bought the iPhone in Canada and have to contact my provider ( Rogers) to see what they might be able to offer/ give me for advice.
It seems a lot of people have had the same problem (I've been reading about it all over the web). It is a little dissatisfying that a hardware glitch will cost ME $200. I love apple products (I am typing this on an iPad right now!) but this has been quite a bother!!
Just a reminder. Apple welcomes feedback and bug reporting.
Please let Apple know in one of two ways.
The simple way is at:
Select Feedback Type: Bug Report
Fill out the form. Just takes a minute
If you are a developer, registered to be a developer, or at least understand the lingo, you can report the bug at
Fill out the form. It is more complex, but a few have had an email contact asking for more information. A Core Duo chip is required to run the program that generates the report to send to them.
If it is happening to enough people and we start telling Apple, they may look into it. Or it may be a non issue by the end of this week with the release of 4.1.
