    Hey.

    Just got my iPhone 4 replaced because of problems with the home button (not recognizing double clicks as double clicks, etc...) and got a new one and noticed that it can't detect any wifi networks... Only if i put the phone 10cm from the router i get 2 bars from total 3.

    Tried restoring the phone, resetting network settings, resetting the router, with different ones, on different locations, nothing works, or let's say everything works but only at very close distance.

    Do you guys think it's faulty or am i missing something here ?

    Thanks!

    If you tried it on multiple routers...then yes, there is a hardware issue in the iPhone.

    Buy a new router or configure it with different security options

    He mentioned that he tried this would multiple routers...so there's a pretty high likelihood that it's not the router.

    I work in a tech company, i've tried with routers here at work, home router, shopping mall routers (doesn't even detect them even though my iPad2 and iPod4G detects everything so i'm gonna change it back again... and the home button is also feeling a bit loose... Two many problems and since it's under warranty until November gonna take care of it now just to be sure the last one i get is a fully working one

    Thanks guys!

    There's no reason to wait, Apple will exchange it again for sure. Try to connect the wifi in the store before you leave.

    I had the exact same issue on my wife's iphone. A replacement at apple solved the problem.
