So my iPod greyed out a few months ago. I went to apple and got it fixed. It worked for like 3 months then I didn't use it for about 2 months. I got it back and now the wifi doesn't work. I've tried everything. I don't wanna spend money on something I just fixed less than 6 months ago. Is there any way to get it fixed for free


iPod touch, iOS 6

    Here:

    iOS: Wi-Fi or Bluetooth settings grayed out or dim

    An appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is usually in order.

    I had the exact same issue with a 2 year old iPhone. I read up on it all day and tried everything. Last ditch - I tried  a weird solution I found online and it worked. Overheat the iPhone gently with a hot hair dryer until it gives the Temperature alert and goes into recovery mode.

     

    Now put it in a Ziplock bag and place it in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. If it comes back on you are ready to do teh following.

     

    Go to Settings / General / Reset / Reset Network Settings. Reset it.

     

    This takes a few mins. Once complete - force reboot the iPhone holding down the Home and Power buttons for about 10 second simultaneously. Once you see the Apple reboot let go.

     

    It's weird - it was my last roll of the dice - but it worked. I was able to switch on the WiFi and it connected.

     

    There is a Canadian post online where many people have had the same success
