Ok so I just opened up an Apple id just to share my experience with greyed out wifi problem. I bought my new unlocked 4S less then 2 months ago, and suddenly it greyed out the wifi option. I updated it to ios 6.0.1 and still had the same problem. I tried EVERYTHING that was mentioned on this forum, including a 30 minute call to Apple support with no result. The Apple support guy made me do things that I did myself already, soft reset, hard reset, reset network settings etc. Then he said it is a hardware issue and I am entitled to a replacement. I didn't want to give in my $549 unlocked iphone which is less than 2 months old, for a replacement I don't even know if it's new, used or remanufactured. (In fact I asked the Apple rep and he clearly said the replacement is NOT gonna be a brand new one). I wanted to stick with my phone since I paid full unactivated price & have unlimited 4g internet.
When I was at work yesterday, I did a soft reset while my phone was being charged (connected to a PC), and miraculously it brought back the wifi. So far, it still has the wifi option as normal.
The problem existed for a total of 4 days. Now I really hope this never happens again! And yes, Apple should pay immediate attention to this issue...

I am also one of the usersaffected by this and find it amazing how this "fix" has actually caused my iphone to experience these issues. Who ever tested this? I am starting to think that Samsung is the way forward. Urgency needs to be applied to this issue. I also find it unbelieveable that icloud restores can only be done one way, through WIFI!!??

I had the same greyed out thing on iPhone 4S/iOS 6.0.1. It is unbelievable, but freezer trick helped me out of a sudden! What is going on???

Freezer option helps only for 30 minutes and then the same problem come back again.
Where are the apple guys???
Very disappointed from apple!!!!
Nothing I have done helps and I tried every option that people wrote here.
You need to resolve this problem fast apple!!!

I suppose it's conceivable that iOS 6 broke the temperature sensor on the 4s but there is no way in **** that I am going to put my 4s in the freezer!
Is this forum not moderated? Where is the input from Apple? It's ridiculous that there is no input from Apple tech
