TS1398 iPhone 5 won't stay connected to WiFi

My phone sees the networks and connects but then it drops.   This started happening after the new iOS 7.1 installation.  Here's what I've done so far to try to correct the problem:
reset all the network settings
complete restore of the iPhone, twice. Once using iCloud once, not.
Nothing seems to work.   Could this be a hardware issue?

  • IPhone won't stay connected to Wifi....period

    I have to start a new discussion because I cannot find the answer anywhere else. I wanted to give this a shot before I go to Apple/Verizon and/or go back to my Droid.
    My iPhone 4S will not stay connected to wifi at all. I can connect no problem, and then once the screen shuts off or I move the phone the wrong way it disconnects itself.
    I've done everything I could to try and remedy this, I reset the network settings twice, restored my phone three times, and reboot my wireless modem countless times. My wireless settings are fine, I can't figure out what else to do. This is getting rediculous.

    If this is happening after you've restored your phone as new and with every wifi network you connect to, it's a hardware issue. The phone needs to be replaced

  • IPhone won't Stay connected to Wifi, please help

    i will connect to wifi, and everything will be ok when im on the phone. but when i lock it and set it down for awhile then go to unlock it the 3G is there and not the wifi symbol. i am wanting to know why that is. it hasn't done it before until now. i recenlty restored my phone because of some other issues my phone was having. those issues are fixed as far as i can tell. but this issue has just appeared. i have also been away from home so i am not on my home wifi, i am on my friends wifi. i feel as if my phone doing this that it is killing my battery alot faster then it should. so my question is why is it doing this? thanks for the help.

    It is doing this because this is the way iOS is designed to work.  Turning off Wi-Fi when the device is asleep and not actively using the Wi-Fi saves battery life.
    Now, if the device were streaming audio or doing something that would use the Wi-Fi and stay active when the device is put to sleep, the Wi-Fi will stay active as long as that apps/feature is still using the Wi-Fi.

  • IPhone 4S won't stay connected to wifi

    iPhone 4S won't stay connected to wifi? Fix?

    i have a similar problem except i've a 3GS.  i took the phone to the "Genius Bar" and the "Geniuses" there did nothing more than clean out the lint that had accumulated over the past three years.
    here's the link to my thread:  https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3947285
    I've done everything possible with the phone and my router at home (though, as you can tell from reading what i've done, anything related to my router at home is moot because th eissue persists anywhere i go...)  all i can think is that it's a OS issue some how.  I may try to wipe and install an older OS or jail break it to see what happens.
    My bets are on what people have said to me though in passing:  this is Apple's way of making people want to move onto the iPhive (name trademarked by me!) due to frustrations with their iPhour or iPhthree (that doesn't work so well does it...).

  • TS1398 My iPhone won't stay connected to my wireless. I have to keep repowering my phone and then it lasts for a few minutes until I have to reboot again. Any ideas? Anyone experienced the same?

    HI:
    It does not sound like a battery problem.
    Try a couple of things:
    1.          Reset the SMC
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964
    2.          Reset (if you can) the PRAM
    http://support.apple.com/kb/PH4405
    If that does not help, delete the mouse in system preferences, turn it off, restart, and turn the mouse back on.

    P.S.  I only needed it once, but I have an old USB mouse in case my Bluetooth one decides to quit. 

  • Apple tv won't stay connected to wifi

    my apple tv won't stay connected to wifi.  what's the issue?

    Answers can only be as helpful as the details provided.  And in this case none were give.  What is happening?  Error message?  Other WiFi devices have issues?  It is actually losing the connection or is your streaming content just freezing?
    Trying to do streaming video over WiFi is not a great idea.  Even if you are using the really high end WiFi hardware it will never be completely solid.  You really want to use a wired connection for that.

  • My unlocked iPhone won't stay connected to my wifi

    I've had my unlocked iPhone 4 for about 3 weeks and I had no problems connecting to any wifi, but a couple
    of days ago it stopped staying connected. When I go in to settings and the to wifi it wont even pull up any wifi networks.
    How can I fix this? If I reset network setting will it lock my phone back up?

    Ok...if that doesn't fix my wifi problem do you have any other solutions?

  • IPhone 4S not staying connected to wifi?

    I have both iPad and iPhone connected to same wifi, but my iPhone 4S does not stay connected.  I have tried to reset network, restart iPhone and they do connect but disconnects shortly afterwards.  Can anyone help me?

    Did you solve this problem? My new MacBook Pro 15" running 10.8.2 has exactly the problem you describe with our new Netgear N600. The other devices in our house (iMac running 10.5, a PC and an iPhone 3Gs) have no connectivity probelms at all.
    I have no problem connecting with my MBP at work or elsewhere. The problem is just at home with the N600.

  • Brand new iPod touch won't stay connected to Wifi

    I got a brand new white iPod touch for Christmas, and I can get it to connect to the internet and I can use the internet, but then after a few minutes it drops off the connection and I have to go back in and reconnect it. I know there isn't anything wrong with the wifi connection at my house because I have an older iPod touch (3rd generation) and it has always connected and stayed connected without a problem. My mom and brother also got the same iPod touches for Christmas, and theirs do the same exact thing.

    Change the router SSID (network name) and password to something shorter than the defaults.  If you dig into the router configuration web page you will find a short SSID.  My SSID is 5 characters long, and the password I use is 10 charcters long.

  • My iPad 3G 2nd edition, won't stay connected to Wifi

    It will connect usually when I first wake it up from sleep, stay connected for a few min (2 min to 20 min) then suddenly stop, once I lose it I can't ever get it to reconnect for more than a minute, sometimes it loses the connection all together and can't find any networks!  This happens on my home network, at the coffee shop, everywhere I try it, even when the iPad next to me has no problems.  I have tried resetting the network settings, turning it off/on, downloading latest software, messed with all the Internet settings, turned off 3G, I can't seem to fix it.  Please help, I'm ready to chuck this thing out the window soon.  I'm not computer illiterate, it's an apple product, I shouldn't be having these kinds of problems!!! :(

  • TS1398 How do I stay connected to wifi and still maintain cellular data as well on ios6?

    I upgraded to ios6 but have been unable to connect to wifi without turning off cellular data and vice-versa.  What do I do?

        sammip90,
    So sorry to hear about the trouble with receiving calls and messages! Are you able to send messages? Can you make calls? Just to be clear, is voice roaming on? If it was off please turn it on, power the phone off and back on and retest. If roaming is enabled and you are still having trouble with calls and texts please reach out to our Global Support Team. Here are instructions for reaching them while outside of the U.S.: http://vz.to/1ki5lQF .

  • FaceTime won't stay connected on WiFi on iPhone 4 after iOS6 update

    My boyfriend and I both have the iPhone 4. We rely on FaceTime to video chat with each other as he lives in another city from myself and our daughter. We used FaceTime almost on a daily basis over WiFi prior to updating to iOS 6. Since updating to iOS6, neither of us can get FaceTime to maintain a connection to the other for more then a few seconds. FaceTime connects, then the screen goes black says reconnecting and it's a 50/50 guess as to whether it will reconnect and we can see each other for a split second before it goes black and reconnects again or just simply disconnects us. This has been happening for weeks now. I've been in touch with Rogers "technical" support and was told that since we only have iPhone 4 and are using FaceTime over WiFi that they can't do anything to help and I need to contact Apple as it's an Apple Server issue.
    Does anyone have any suggestions other then telling me to upgrade to the iPhone 5 so we can use FaceTime over 3G?

    So you're saying that it's only your phone that has the wifi problem? Like your friends are using the same wifi as you, but only you lose connection while they don't?
    If that's the case, does the wifi have a passcode? And also some wifi networks have a verification before the wifi becomes accessible. For example, you may connect to a wifi network without having to put a password, but then you would need to open Safari and you would need to confirm some things before you're able to use it. Like in college, the wifi is free and open to everyone but only students who have a user and pass are able to access the wifi.
    2nd possible solution is to reset your network settings. Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. See if that works.
    3rd, restart your phone by turning it on/off.
    4th, restore your phone on iTunes.
