    Last week my iPhone suddenly stopped automatically switching to my WiFi when I would get home. I also noticed it would attempt to receive and WiFi service. Any idea what happened? Is it Apple?

    Did you update to the new IOS? My phone stopped working correctly in many ways, forcing me to update to the new IOS (I usually wait and let them release a second update to fix the bugs before I update).

    Try a deep reset on your phone.

    Connect to your network then tell it to forget the network.

    Turn phone on/off and reconnect that has worked for me

    So Apple has now 'improved' to the quality of Microsoft products. :hilarious:

    What if I reset my personal WiFi? Turn that on/off? I didn't know if that would work.

    1. Get a small pin and find the mechanism on side to pop out SIM card

    2. Pop out SIM card assembly.

    3. Remove SIM card and place in envelope

    4. Mail SIM card to:
    The Howard Stern Show
    Sirius Satellite Radio
    1221 Avenue of the Americas
    New York, NY 10020
    USA

    5. Attach this note "Please kindly shove this up your ass for ruining your show."

    Also, reset your router. Just turn off for 30 seconds and turn back on. I had the same issue with one of my Ipads and this fixed it.

    This. Stop mucking around with phone and reboot router first.

    Maybe the neighbor you are stealing your wifi from changed their password?
