    WiFi not turning on in iPhone 4S. How to fix this?

    I have an iPhone 4S. I am using it from last 1 year. I never tried to connect via WiFi because i never needed that.Now, i want to use the wifi because my iDevice has detected a free network connection.I moved to settings and tried to toggle the WiFi "On" but it is greyed out. I tried to fix this issue but failed. Is there anyone, who can provide some guidance?

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say..........................

    1.This can be the problem of the network.

    2.Though you are getting the Wi-Fi it's signal may be down.

    3.So your iPhone 4 Wi-Fi is greyed out.

    4.You try to use that Wi-Fi using another idevice.

    5.If you have no problem with that then the problem is with the iPhone OS.

    6.So you try to update or restore the Os to fix this problem.

    Have a nice day....................

    dear friend,

    1)this is the software issue in the iphone4 this can be solved by the factory reset of the phone
    2)sometimes this grey out will be seen due to the virus in the iphone
    3)so check the virus if any present the iphone4 if any present then clean the virus using the antivirus application
    4)i think the factory reset will work fine and it will solve your problem for sure

    happy to assist you...................................
