    They might, but the rules of this site prohibit any non-Apple advertising.  It also prohibits discussing any non-Apple authorized procedures.  Therefore, anyone that posted such a link would be violating the rules of this forum.

     

    Use Google to search for non-Apple authorized procedures & services.  This is not the place for that.

    You sir, are annoying and don't offer any helpful information. I don't know why your so **** bent on trying to convince people that you know everything and Apple can never do wrong, but you are useless to me and your advice is too.

    So, your'e annoyed that I'm reminding you of the rules you agreed to when you signed up for this forum?  Then don't break the rules.

     

    I've NEVER said Apple can do no wrong.  I've stated that my opinion is that the warranty should be longer than one year, that Apple should offer special considerations for certain issues, etcetera.

     

    But my opinion of what Apple should do isn't relevant here.  What IS relevant are the approved policies of Apple, and what the Apple-approved procedures are.

     

    That includes the rules of this forum.  If you don't want to be reminded of when you are violating them (or about to violate them), re-read the rules, and follow them.

     

    And as far as advice?  Have you contacted Apple Support and asked for an exception? 

     

    your best option if you are out of warranty is to contact Apple Support immediately, and ask for an exception to the normal warranty replacement options.  Ask for a supervisor if you need to. The answer might still be 'no', but it doesn't hurt to ask.

     

    This forum is not the place to get advice for non-Apple authorized or approved procedures.  If the Apple authorized and approved procedures aren't to your liking, then seek out another forum.

    Thanks for being Apple's pet but kindly step aside so I can get some actual useful information.

  • TJBUSMC1973 Level 5 Level 5 (7,310 points)

    So, instead of engaging in an actual conversation or debate, you're referencing Billy Madison?

     

    The technical question has been answered.  The proper procedures have been provided:

     

    Use this article: iOS: Wi-Fi settings grayed out or dim - Support - Apple

     

    Follow all of the troubleshooting steps.  You can even try restoring the device as new: iOS: How to back up your data and set up your device as a new device

     

    If the wi-fi remains greyed out, your device needs service.

    If within warranty, it should be free.

    If not, it will probably cost as follows:

    For iPhone 4 and older: $149 USD + tax

    For iPhone 4S: $199 USD + tax

    For iPhone 5 and newer: $269 USD + tax

    You can always request an exception to the normal warranty procedures by calling Apple Support.


     

    That's it.  Anything beyond that is not supported by Apple.  Therefore, it is not supported by this forum.

     

    Why is that so difficult for you to understand?  The fact that you do not like the options does not give you the right to violate the rules of this forum.

     

    Search for 'podmod' on your own.  Use Google to search for it.  This forum doesn't allow advertising or non-Apple authorized procedures.

  • btrau1 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    The technical question has NOT been answered and the proper procedures are in your words "moot". So, once again, I have no inclination to listen to a non moderater or Apple employee so please, kindly, beat it. I don't know why your even on here.. ?

  • TJBUSMC1973 Level 5 Level 5 (7,310 points)

    Is your wi-fi greyed out?  Then follow the Apple troubleshooting articles.  If the issue remains unresolved, do what the article tells you to do next:

     

    If you still can't turn Wi-Fi on, please contact Apple for support and service options

     

    Did you contact Apple Support?  What did they say?  Did you ask for an exception if you are outside of warranty?

     

    This is the proper, Apple authorized procedure to resolve this issue.  If all of the steps fail to resolve the issue, then your device needs service.  And the Apple options for that have been detailed, ad nauseum.

     

    Now, since you are not satisfied with those Apple options, you want a non-Apple related option.  That's fine, and I don't have any personal problem with you wanting such an option.  However, this forum does not support non-Apple procedures.  Once you've taken all the steps I've recommended, that's the end of the line for an Apple resolution.

     

    If you want a third-party resolution, use a third-party forum or resource.  It's that simple.

  • btrau1 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Apple's "proper authorized procedure" fails in all aspects. It's amazing that their solution at that point is to throw their hands in the air and suggest shelling out another $200 for another phone that will most likely have the same issues. I am not searching for a third-party resolution, I am requesting an actual Apple employee respond and offer some sort of resolution that actually works. Not some forum vigilante that regurgitate's useless information.

  • Ralph Landry1 Level 8 Level 8 (39,910 points)

    You are looking at the wrong place, this site is all fellow users, no Apple employees take part in this site.

     

    You need to talk with Apple Support, http://support.apple.com/kb/HE57 for an appropriate country number to call.

    Then you're still in the wrong place.  Again, per the terms of this forum, Apple does not monitor these forums.  You will NOT get a direct response from Apple here.

     

    If you want to talk to an Apple employee, go to an Apple Store or contact Apple Support.

     

    And you were looking for a third-party solution.  Podmod is not part of Apple.  It's a third-party.

     

    Additionally, the reolutions DO work.  The last option, via Apple is to replace the device.  That DOES resolve the issue.  Just not in a manner that you like.

     

    It's not that there are no resolutions being made available that will work.  It's that you don't like the options.

     

    Contact Apple Support.  Request an EXCEPTION to the normal procedures.  Either the answer will be 'yes' or 'no'.

    That is my "thank you for being a forum vigilante and regurgitating the same useless information 5 different ways" face. Apple support forums thanks you for your stickler vigilantism and keeping riff raff like myself from mentioning anything besides the proper Apple authorized procedures code: 69435.

  • TJBUSMC1973 Level 5 Level 5 (7,310 points)

    You're welcome.  I'm glad I was able to clear things up for you. Feel free to seek third-party options, as described, or use the contact methods, also as described, to talk to someone from Apple directly.

     

    If you're waiting to get a response from Apple here on this forum... you'll be waiting a long time.  But feel free to waste your time, if you want.  It's your time to waste, after all.  I just find it... amusing.  Like watching a dog chase its own tail.
