    I would try *228 option 1 then if that don't work restore if that don't work then go to apple tell them what you have try since that's what they will do they will prob replace it
    After you restore test it out before loading your backup file for your info that will rule out a corrupt database file in you current software if that is the case restoring your backup would bring the issue back

    I had this issue too. After enabling baseband logging (as recommended by apple engineering) and them looking at the logs, there seems to be two DNS servers 17.26.38.1 and 17.26.38.2 (For me in Houston these are the addresses). mDNSResponder tries the first server, sends two queries and switches to the second server and now the first response comes back after 13 seconds. These can be seen in packets if you filter "udp.port == 55112" in wireshark. By the time the response came back, the iphone switched to the second DNS server and doesn't accept the first response anymore.

    Same behavior can be seen with (udp.port == 59101).

    There are two problems here:

    1) DNS servers are taking too long to respond (13 seconds!)
    2) mDNSResponder not accepting responses when that happens.

    For the record, this doesn't happen in beta 1 of iOS 6. It should be fixed in a future iOS 5 release. You can still take it the genius bar and see what they say. It won't hurt.

    That doesn't apply to AT&T. That's a CDMA thing.

    You might want to look into loading the beta if it's that big a issue .. But of course remember it's beta
