Those might be the older phones before apple clamped down on foxconn and reduced the tolerances.

Apple retailers are giving a discount of 5% to all employees of our company till this month's end on all Apple products except the iPhone5. They had put up a stall in our premises yesterday to showcase all products. They did not have iPhone5 and, iPad Mini is not yet available in India. They say it will reach Indian shores only in December.

So the iPhone 4S, which is now officially sold at 38,500/-, will be sold to us at 36,500/- for a limited period.

Yes on normal inspection i didn't find any leakage issue till now. Even i was little worried when i opened the packaging due to scuffgate, again was lucky to have got a clean piece. No rattle, scuffs or bends till now. TOUCH WOOD!

Guys I have an iPhone 4S that I brought from HK. Due to battery not holding up (and the phone not shutting down) I got a replacement handset from Australia when I was there last month.

Now I have come back to India, I had updated the phone to ios 6.0.1, and the phone does not connect to my home wifi anymore. I am running WPA-PSK2 on my home wifi and rest of the iDevices (Macbook pro & and ipad 2) connect without a problem. Infact the ipad 2 has been updated to ios 6.0.1 too -and it still connects.

The problem with wifi is that the phone does not show my home wireless network at all!

Any pointers on what can I do to troubleshoot? I have already reset network settings and that did not solve the issue.

If not, any ideas where in India/Pune I can show the iPhone for support since its still under warranty?

This morning when I connected my Ipod touch to the comp I got a software update notification for ios 6.0.1 - I updated the software straightaway.
I use only wi fi all the time.
Am in office right now and working on wi fi off my Mac Air.
My ipod touch is connected to wi fi too.
My Iphone is plugged in and Im going to update the software to ios 6.0.1 now.
If there is any trouble with the iphone detecting the wifi network I will let you know but as of this moment I dont think there is an issue.
I use a WPA2 wi fi network at home so will check that also and tell you.
cheers

i got a big scare the morning after upgraded to iOS 6.0.1. as usual i got up in the morning and the first thing i do is check my mails and i was horrified to find No Service showing on the top left corner!

i rebooted the phone a couple of times, but it still kept showing No Service. i then removed the SIM and reinserted it, but no avail! i finally gave and thought i'll visit the ARC and get a new SIM (thinking this is a SIM problem) on the way to office.

i come back from a shower and there it is - Airtel 3G

phew! that was the scariest moment of my iOS 6.0.1 upgrade

I wonder how you managed to survive?


But tell me one thing.

I ask as I want to upgrade wifey's IP$ to 6, but i also dont want to get into trouble.

Besides Maps and missing YouTube app, there is no issue in upgrading to 6.0.1. One thing that I have observed after 6.x upgrade is that my phone gets charged faster than it used to be. Don't know if its my imagination or truth.

Beware that the new Passbook app won't work in India as yet.

Thanks. Believe me, I have always believed in Apple quality, but the recent issues with my iPhone 4S (having already a replaced handset from Apple) has left me believing otherwise. My past smartphones (HTC Windows Mobiles and Samsung Android devices) has never had any issues which completely blanked out a service - be it wifi or modem or bluetooth radios)

It all depends on how much you place usefulness on the ios 6 features like facebook integration. Personally if you ask me, I would suggest you wait - the new features on ios 6 like "Do not Disturb" are something that you can probably live without, and the rest of them like apple maps and passbook are anyways completely useless here in India.

With the typical issues like my phones wifi going completely borked, I atleast dont recommend going to 6.0.1.

I have succeeded in downloading iOS 6.0.1 onto my Iphone 4S as well a short while ago.
It is merrily downloading emails via the office wi fi as we speak
Will test it again at home too and let you know

I will also do the same download for my iPad2 which is at home right now.

Well, no issue with the one I have. It's working fine. But then I wouldn't have even noticed this "issue" if it had occurred in my phone!

Same here. No issues so far with the iOS 6.0.1.

And I downloaded this app called McTube. Works much better than the regular YouTube app.

Well i updated my iPhone 4 almost in an hour of its launch. it was just a 35 MB update, so never bothered to even reach back home.
According to the updates from apple 6.0.1 fixes:-
~Resolves an issue that prevents iPhone from using the cellular network in some instances.
~ Improves reliability of iPhone 5 and iPod touch (5th generation) when connected to encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi networks.

i have been using the updated 6.0.1 seamlessly with no issues at all.
For people who are facing trouble in connecting to wireless, I would suggest them to remove the wireless network by forget the network and pair it again. Maybe it works.

Updated both my devices to iOS 6.0.1 today morning. No issues so far. touch wood.
My imagination or not - i4 seems to get slower these days.. could it be because of the reason that new OS and apps are more meant for i5 and i4s (with much better muscles inbuilt?) possibly yes! BTW I do keep a tab to have ~ GB or so free disk space (if it helps in any manner!), still it feels slower than what it used to be a year back or so.:-(
newly tried apps- that I use more these days - waze, Mctube & ted :-)
