I checked my iphone 4s running 7.0.4 ios after it died and I charged it to find an error message Cannot Verify Server Identity and them it goes on to say that it cannot identify my yahoo mail. I chose to continue to find out that my time and date are wrong.So I go and try to fix that, but its set on set automatically and not working. I turned off automatic and set it myself, but them I find out that it won't connect to wifi, send or recieve any calls or texts, pretty much won't do anything but play my games without wifi. I first try to reset my phone to find out that I have to turn off Find Your Phone to do this. I go to iCloud in Settings and it gives me another error Verification Failed-The certificate for this server is invalid. You might be connecting to a server that is pretending to be "setup.icloud.com" which could put your confidential information at risk. Then I thought maybe it was my yahoo account on my phone because the first error said it couldn't verify my yahoo account, so I delete that and it gets rid of the first error, but didnt change anything else. I searched for ways to fix this and tried many like resetting all my settings and resetting network settings, but that didn't work. Finally after doing everything I can think of since I can't reset my phone from backup, I go to my clock app (the app not in the Settings) and delete all time zones but the one I'm in now. Then I go back to the date and time settings in the Settings and put that back to set automatically and it works. Suddenly all my stuff works again and I might not of had to delete my yahoo account, but it's easy to add it back on. I hope this information helps someone, I know I worked for hours on my phone trying to figure this out.

iPhone 4S, iOS 7.0.4
