The button to access Wifi is grayed out on my I phone 4S



Iphone 4s wifi gray out problem is hardware problem, the wifi chip got welding off (or called fake weld). This is nothing to do with software upgrade.

I just fixed my iPhone 4s with gray out problem. This is not same as the way others talked --heating and cooling. this method needs to open iPhone case.

here is how (with phone power off):
1) open case (many youtube videos will teach you how).
2) remove metal covers, you will see the wifi chip (within red lines.);237135_750913605901185076329097be036.jpg

3) carefully (with a sharp knife) remove the black insulation layer completely (red lines), will put insulation layer later.

4) after remove the insulation layer, you will see the wifi chip like this picutue ( I borrow this picture. wifi number and ID is blacken out):237135_aed31360590130dc0aac5421381e0.jpg
5) then, heat-up your solder iron (40-60 W is OK).
6) use a wood stick, press down in the middle of wifi chip (black big dot in the middle). then use the tip of solder iron to push each blue dot about 20-30 seconds tightly, the heat of soldering iron will be passed to the chip to do re-soldering work. you need to do this step with 8 dots one by one, not stop.

7) after soldering work, put back black insulation layer back.then resemble the iPhone 4S.

the Job is done and your wifi should work now.

Good luck.
( this is only for those Iphone 4s with warranty expired)

How to Fix iPhone 6/6 Plus Show WiFi Problems


"Anyone experiencing really slow WiFi on their new iPhone 6 Plus? Mine is super slow. When I switch off WiFi, LTE works perfectly and very snappy. I didn't have any issues with my 5s and not having issues with my iPad Air. I doubt it's an iOS 8 issue because the 5s and iPad Air are running iOS 8. WiFi also works fine on my 13" MacBook Pro Retina. It's not a router issue. Any ideas??" asked by Mikef91 on the Apple's office discussions.

As one of the leading wholesale cell phone parts supplier online, DBXStore find some solution for you to fix the show wifi problem on your iphone 6/ 6 plus.
Greyed-out, slow or no Wi-Fi signal at all are among the top three biggest Wi-Fi headaches. Even though the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus came with iOS 8, Wi-Fi problems are still not completely avoidable. Before searching for solutions to Wi-Fi related problems, always update your device to the newest version of iOS. If that doesn't work, then it is time to dig deeper.


1. Reset Network Settings

Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.
This is a solution suggested by Apple Service. Resetting your network settings including Bluetooth pairing records, Wi-Fi passwords, VPNs, and APN settings; which flushes cache and clears DHCP settings and other networking related information.
2. Disable Wifi Network Services
Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services.

This only relates to your location being used for network and not the Wi-Fi itself.

3. Switch DNS To Google

Often times, if your ISPs DNS servers are having problems, you can switch to Google DNS by going to Settings > Wi-Fi then tap the "i" icon next to your router, scroll down to DNS and tap the numbers, then enter "8.8.8.8". Restart your device and check if it works.

4. Change The Routers Broadcasting Band

Change the routers Wi-Fi broadcast from an N network to a G network, or from 2.4GHz to 5GHz - this depends on your individual router hardware.

5. Factory Reset

Settings > General > Reset > Erase all Content and Settings > Erase iPhone.

Last but not least, restore your iPhone and set it up as a new device.

Other tricks like placing the iPhone 6/6 Plus in a refrigerator, freezer it for 15 minutes, or the opposite using a hair dryer to heat up the device might also be of help.

However, if all these software related tricks don't help, it could possibly be a hardware problem with the Wi-Fi antenna. Then the only fix is to replace your antenna with a new Wi-Fi antenna replacement. Here are links to the parts and tutorial guides' for reference.

I recently found an Apple iPhone 4 16GB in the mall parking lot. I was just wondering, since it has Wi-Fi capabilitys, would I be tracked by the network provider (Bell) if I was to use the internet on the...


ha ha !!!!!,I don't think so.

First of all what the Apple iPhone was made for in the first place was not for you network provider to be tracking you where ever you go, it's for your own use alone. Network providers just gives you access to operate the phone by providing network for your access your Apple iPhone.

How does Wi-Fi work on a Apple iPhone ?

Apple's iPhone is a multimedia connectivity tool. As such, the iPhone employs a sophisticated system to keep you connected to the web via WiFi signals so that you can stay up to date with email, mapping and media. To use the iPhone's WiFi feature just follow these steps.

Instructions on how to use Wi-Fi on your iPhone.........


Tap a network. If you have not yet used your iPhone's WiFi or if you're in a new WiFi area, the iPhone will show you a list of available networks. Tap the network that you want to connect to in order to connect. If there is a password required a little lock icon appears. Enter the password to connect to locked networks and continue to surf the web.


Monitor your signal. As you use your iPhone, especially if you're moving around, you should take a look at the signal strength of the connection. The strength is indicated by a small, black broadcast symbol that stacks arches, or rounded bars, on top of one another. The more bars there are the better the signal.


Make connecting to WiFi automatic or manual. The iPhone is equipped to automatically search for available networks and connect you to one. If you do not want the phone to search for networks, select the "WiFi" option on the phone's menu. Then select either the on or off option of the "Ask To Join Networks." Turning this option off requires that you find networks manually.


Forget a network. Once you connect to a WiFi network once the iPhone automatically remembers the network and connects you to it at a later opportunity. To forget a network so you don't get automatically connected choose the "WiFi" option on the menu. Then tap the right arrow button next to one of the networks that the iPhone already remembers. Then tap "Forget This Network" to erase the phone's memory of the network. That all, Very easy to use too.


Hope that helps.

Thanks for using fixya.....
