iPhone 4 WiFi greyed out!
Hey I recently bought my iphone 4 on ebay, knowing that the wifi doesn't work. But i wanted to try to repair it myself, the question is what should i do. I open the phone and the water indicator is red near the logic board is but thats the only spot. The other indicators is white, so im asking should i replace the wifi antenna and hope that solves it or do i have to go to the logic board? If its the logic board then i might leave at is, everything works except wifi, the wifi repair looks pretty simple from ifixit. Thanks

Usually when the wifi is greyed out this is a board level issue. Usually the wifi chip is bad. I have performed a reflow on this and gotten it to work. But I suggest taking it to a repair shop for that. But if you have the proper tools and the patience give it a go!

Mine occasionally does this, very annoying. I fix mine with a hair dryer.
