Thread: Iphone 3Gs WiFi crash

  1. #1
    Default Iphone 3Gs WiFi crash
    Crashes during upload streaming (parameter in
    dsl test app) most often, then phone can no longer detect wifi signal. Problem solved by resetting network until you upload again. Many thanks for any help!
    Solution:
    New one from apple.

    Firmware? T-Mobile or AT&T? Jailbreak Method? Unlock method? (if applicable). What are you "uploading"? NEED MORE INFO.

    Sorry. I could be uploading (watching any kind of video and just stops playing because it looses it wifi connection)YouTube or website videos. It happens very fast when I run the DSL speed test on the upload setting. Thanks!

    thats not uploading. thats just watching a video. thats more streaming. uploading is when you take a video and put it somewhere (like to youtube) what your saying is that when you click on some sort of youtube video your watching it and then all of a sudden it stops loading the video? is that right?

    Yes, it looses the wifi connection. I go into settings and although it says it connected, but its really not. Then just no longer sees it if I toggle wifi on and off. It doesn't switch over to 3g either, its just hung until I reset network connection. I thought it was uploading because when I run the TEST app it crashes during upload. Thanks

    what i would suggest is restoring your phone, reset network settings then jailbreak,then after the jailbreak i would reset network settings again. this is what i did and i have had absolutely no issues with my wifi. i had some with edge but i resolved that with a reboot

    Thanks but I did every combination possible unless you mean in that exact order. Otherwise do you think its time for the dreaded Genius bar? Thanks!

    No luck. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

    Well I gave up. Got a new one from Apple. Second one this week. First one was intermittent locking up (freezing), second iPhone was this wifi problem. Used purple rain for V3.0 and redsnow for 3.01. Not sure but is possible jailbreak messes with baseband or something that a full restore with new phone set up can't fix? Now Im hesitant to jailbreak again. I welcome comments. Thanks!
