allright people, from my call to Apple Support i just learned that routine procedure is:
1. Backup iPhone
2. Restore to factory settings via iTunes (this will force a new download and verification of iOS 6.1)
3. Then restore Backup
I am doing this now as it is prerequisite to have the iPhone exchanged in case the issue persists.
I will keep you updated on the outcome of this. In the meantime, did you update to iOS 6.1 through iTunes (over USB?) or on the phone itself (over WiFi?)
At first, i did it on the phone itself (over WiFi).

i am sure it won't work. cause i did both haha
i even put my phone in DFU mode to completely have the firmware on its own(not from upgrading)
please give us feedback.

You should report that if it doesn't work on your phone, professor.
I tried everything what you posted before, it still doesn't work.
It looks like we have to wait for Apple (again) to fix this in an update.

Eeyup, issue persists after factory restore procedure.
So don't bother.
Unless you need your phone exchanged by apple. They require you to do the restore in order to get guarantee covered exchange of your phone.
Which I'm gonna get because I can't use my 4S like this.

Same Problem here in Germany with Deutsche Telekom, iPhone 4S after update to iOS 6.1.
The iPhone is showing the 3G symbol, but the internet connection don't work. After activating and deactivating the Fly-Mode, the connection is working for a few minutes and then the phone is again offline, but 3g is always shown.
I restored the network Settings, an the phone. I make a restore from backup. But nothing works.

I think it's safe to say that EVERY iPhone 4S not bought in the US has a good chance of being subject to this bug. way to go on testing your firmware worldwide, Apple. this bug would have been discovered within seconds, if they had tested their build worldwide BEFORE rolling out. shame. real shame. this company could really use someone like Steve Jobs. with him gone, everything went to s__t.
i'm experiencing these difficulties in Japan by the way, and in the verge of the update, the ping time to the cell tower dropped from 300ms to 130ms, my guess being that all the updated iPhones drop of the grid, leaving a lot of formerly occupied bandwidth for the taking. way to go, Apple. probably hundreds of thousands of phones wrecked by iOS 6.1

Yep Markus gleiche ( same ) probleme hier in Österreich..
Es ist wirklich genug. Habe 2 mal feedback geschrieben und keine Antwort und keine Update beforce JB.
Schon 1 Woche 3G funktioniert nicht mehr richtig. Sie müssen 6.0.1 wieder signieren dass ich lieber 6.0.1 downgrade kann. Sonst werde ich handy verkaufen und Android kaufen. Scheisse Apple.
Erstellt seit Jahren software nur für ein Gerät aber hat viele probleme mehr als Andorid.

i went to apple yesterday
they said it should be the carrier problem
if you go to general and then about
you will see your ios version and carrier version.
they said maybe problem with the updated carrier version
but anyway, i really want to get back to ios 5.1.1
now we can only hope our carrier will push a new version out

i've been to the apple store today too
they gave me the "it's the carriers problem" excuse too. but really the problems came with iOS 6.1 i reasoned with them, in no way can this issue be the carriers fault if an Apple update causes the issue.
so, because i am still in my warranty, they gave me a shiny new 4S for free, and it is still on iOS 5.0.1, so without all the menacing iOS 6 issues combined, its worth its weight in gold
and its gonna stay this way until THIS issue has been resolved, at least.
downside being, all my data is lost (well not lost, but i cannot use a iOS 6.1 backup), and if I'm not mistaken, with the next iOS update, i can't use that old backup anymore, right? so yeah, data practically lost, i guess, but iOS 5 is golden. has google maps haha ^^

I'm in the same trouble here in Ukraine. I've got the iPad 4, just updated iOS to 6.1 yesterday and figured that my iPad doesn't want to pick up the 3G signal anymore..
But I'm waiting for "the fix" from the Apple! Any ideas how soon it might be available?
