    Default 4s wifi problems
    I've was running ios7 beta 5 and noticed my wifi wouldn't connect to my home network. Other devices had no issue, so I have ruled out my router etc, but I reset them any way.
    I thought it may have been a beta5 issue so restored back to 6.1.3, without restoring a backup, but the problem remains.
    I can sometimes connect but within seconds it drops out, and wont pick up any wifi networks. Occasionally the wifi toggle is greyed out and I cannot turn wifi on.
    Is the phone knackered or can it be fixed?

    Antenna may have broke off inside the phone. Happen to both of my iPhone 5's

    I've had the back off and can't say I've noticed anything broken. Do they "just break" because I've never dropped my phone.
    And is it an easy fix?

    Believe it or not, I appear to have fixed it, after watching a YouTube video, and no it didn't involve a freezer or a hair dryer. Been going strong now for a couple of hours. Fingers crossed.

    Must have been a fluke, it's broke again.
