    Hi robson21, Welcome to iMore ! Lets see if I can help you out a bit.
    I'm assuming that you went into Settings>Wifi>and then touched the button to turn it on and 'ON' turns blue, and that button would not switch to 'ON' ? (see attached)
    Once you do that any available networks should show up provided there are some, and if they are locked you would have to know the password to join that network.
    Hope this helps

    If you mean when you hit the "ON" button it doesn't do anything or its grayed out. I'd say do a back up and restore to see if that corrects the problem. If not maybe a hardware issue.

    You do know just to clarify although Wendy did a great job, You just have to tap the button or even slide it a bit and it will go on as Wendy indicated.

    Try to reset network settings?

    or

    Try turning it to Airplane Mode and Rebooting. Then turn Air Plane mode back on and try WiFi
    Has the device been exposed to water recently?

    I agree, but I was thinking the OP meant that when they tapped or slide the ON button it did not work. Maybe I misunderstood. The OP has not responded since the original post so I assume the problem may have been resolved.

    And if what Wendy said doesn't work, check your router to make sure your wifi is working. The one here at the office goes out all the time and has to be reset.

    Here is the solution!

    Get you hair dryier and heat over your iphone for 2 minutes until you get a warning that your phone is warm.Wait until message turns off and then try to turn your wifi on. It worked for me and never had to do this again till now.

    Where on Earth did you find this solution? Got a link or something? I'd like to see this documented/sourced... and I would put this in the "Don't try this at home" file... but that's just me...
