    I'm living in Romania and my whife's white iphone 4s is the 4-th time now in service.The first time his iphone ringtone is gone,the phone is not sound alert,only vibrating.She's got a new or refurbishing Iphone.All god for the moment.The second time wifi greyed out,going back to service,again a replacement(new IMEI,etc).A third time again wifi greyed out problem,again a new phone with a new IMEI. Now a fourth time is in the service for the fuc...ing wifi grey out problem!!!! Now i aspect another refurbished rubbish replacement for her phone. Luckily in Romania Apple has forced by European Union to offer 2 year of warranty for their products,my wife's phone was off the warranty,but luckyly the warranty extends with the period was spent in the service,and in this case is stand totally for 20+ days in the 3 time the phone was in service! I expect now a new iphone 4s and I will sell it in the next minute i will receive it,and will replace it wor an Iphone 5.

    P.S. Sorry with my bad english.

    And the replacement will last how much?? A month,maybe 2 if you're lucky? This will not rezolve the problem! And when you out of warranty what do you do? The main issue will still remain,my wife's 4s is the 3th time in service for the same wifi greyed out problem. Now I expect the 3th replaced Iphone 4s!!! Untill how long???

    Same here, iPhone 4 working fine with ios 6, forced upgrade (restore) to ios 7, now battery runs down at 15% per hour,  wifi greyed out.  Now running on 3G and charger, nice job Apple.

    Tried everything people are suggesting.  Nothing works. No warranty as it's a replacement phone which had a limited warranty, although it's only 1 1/2 year old.  Totally frustrated.  Would move to Samsung, but they are s**t as well!....Looking for alternatives.  P.S Apple - This post had over 50,000 views last ime i checked.  Sort your business out now and do the right thing by people!

    Apple services device for free if within warranty, and for a reduced price if not within warranty.  That is doing the right thing by people.

    TM75LAO the issue is, that iPhones sold in some countries are not the same as in others. there are differences in quality. the service you go to is mostly not apple service, but a smartphone service. that is not always the same. since we support your language also, give it a try: podmod.  german engineering.

    No its not!....It shouldnt happen at all after spending so much money on what is supposed to be a quality product!...Bottom line is they've introduced a new OS which is defective.  They shouldnt be charging AT ALL!

  • podmod.de Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    disagree. it is not important how much money you spend, because that is the price of an item. the key point is, that the iOS upgrade is not killing every WiFi worldwide and that there are some issues with it. But, since this is a hardware issue, you can get it fixed or live without it. Apple offers APP / APP+ and waranty to cover issues and since people did not purchase it, they will not do anything. It is not an intentional issue and if hardware fails, it can be fixed. but not for free. price does not define the product. LOUIS VUITTON bags are not *much* better than other bags, they cost much more. yes, they are better put together and they make a better impression, but user-wise it is a bag like any other bag.

  • kexicus Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Your opinion, which you are of course entitled to; and you are in the business of repairing them so obviously you're biased. It's a shambles and Apple knows it.  A significant number of people (tens of thousands) are affected suggesting it's apple's fault. Louis Vuitton bag?????....Get a grip!   What a ridiculous comparison to make.

  • podmod.de Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    sorry if the analogy is too complex. normaly one uses them to simplify an issue and it makes easier to understand if one can. biased? no. the question is: what to do WHEN WIFI GREYED OUT AFTER UPDATE TO iOS7. the answer is: it is a hardware failure, so it can be fixed. and it wont cost much. you can let us fix it, but this is not obligatory. so thats it. do not want people perform some voodoo and software button switches and such, hairdryer and freezer occultism, missleading self repairs and try-outs, because this does not work. and "tens of thousands" can complain, it wont change the facts: no warranty, no coverage = no free help. apple does not leave you allone; they offer a replacement unit with payment, older or newer iPhones, depending where you geographically are, or a repair; and therefore there is a solution. Your freebee wish is not legitimate. And if you worked for Apple, you would know: the open a little can and a dozen lawyers jump out and explain to you, why you are not right. it is a company that wants to make profit. legitimate. and if they do not have to give you something, they wont. and since you got a grip and accuse them that they made this happen, good luck suing them. until them, there are options to solve it, it does not have to be me. just pointing out, that hardware issues need a hardware fix. and the blame for this WLAN ISSUE could be Apple iOS Software; but since it does not affect EVERY IPHONE 4s, or for that purpose a majority of iPhones active, it is just a hardware problem that occurs. fyi: Homebutton issues or Powerbutton issues are far more common that WLAN issues.

    The iOS is not defective.  If it was, then every device running the new iOS would have the same issue.

     

    The DEVICE is defective.  And your WARRANTY status determines the next step.
