I have wifi in my home and my iphone used to connect to it automatically when I was there. Lately it does not. I dont believe that I hit the forget this network button there, but it is possible. How do I get my iphone to remember that location so I do not have to manually switch to wifi in my home? Thanks.

now i cant connect via bluetooth to my macbook pro
... so i was wondering if anyone knew how to UNforget a device using my iphone because now my macbook pro does not show up anywhere on available devices to connect bluetooth... kinda frustrating
I set to forget a bluetooth device I was trying to pair in an effort to resolve a pairing issue I had. But when I did so, I was never able to see that bluetooth device again.
How do I unforget the bluetooth device so my iPhone can discover it once again?

Since Ive installed the new phone OS, my 32 GB iphone (OS 4.0.1) refuses to connect to my Plantronics Discovery 975 headset. While trying to sort out the problem (which obviously hasnt been solved yet) I told my iPhone to forget the device. How can you get the phone to unforget the device and see my bluetooth headset?

known wifi network changed the password, now how do I replace an old password on the iPhone? I did not find the screen to enter the new network, nor could I find where/how to delete the network settings for that known network and start over again
Though wi if is connected but not able to search the network
Does the iPhone default to one or the other or favor Wifi if available? Should I leave the wifi option turned on to take advantage of possible open networks? I have MBP set up for Airport internet sharing which is strong for right around the building but can drop at distance. I could go to garage and not so good if at all, would the iPhone then switch to 3GS or just drop the connection then re establish when back in range?
Does turing Wifi off have any advantages? Battery life perhaps?

I recently upgraded to version 4.1 and also at that same time changed the router on my home network.
Now for some reason when I go to use the network wifi on my phone I find that is locked.
Im pretty sure that it has to be something to do with the router as my wifes phone is the same way and she hasnt upgraded yet.
Ive tried clicking on the blue button which takes me to the next screen but cant find anything except the information for the network such as IP address, Subnet mask, Router etc. all of the fields are filled in correctly.
I tried selecting (Forget this Network) and filling in the fields that would allow it, however seeing as I was entering just the same information as the original network I didnt see any change when I re-selected WiFi Network from the settings.
I also tried rebooting my phone but that didnt change anything.
I cant find anything in the manual that was of any help so short of changing my network password and name I dont know of anything else I can try to get rid of the padlock.
Im hoping that smarter minds than mine can figure this out.

My steps (iPhone 4S):
1. Settings Wi-Fi.
2. Tap on my wireless network.
3. Enter password.
4. Tap Join.
Result: A message comes up with zero delay, saying that it was unable to join the network. No further infromation is provided.
100% positive that password is correct - entered it four times on device, then entered it on laptop and it was accepted there.
100% positive that network is correct - no other networkin range has a name even remotely close to it.
I want to know if iphone has a network priority while checking mail. when Im at home I have WIFI. Will iphone use 3G network or WIFI to download my mail messages then? I understand that when WIFI is not enabled it will not.But when it is enabled how is it done? Same doubt when browsing using safari.

When I try to connect to my home network, iPhone keeps on asking for a password. Once I do input the password, it connects, but the next time around I am back at square one. I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix this. Thank you!

Why I did this I dont know. While in SLO I tried to connect to a tether option presented as a wifi network on my Iphone 3 g running ios 4.0
Now the wifi does not see any networks at all.
Went to 3 geniuses so far and tried a network reset, an all reset, a simple restore, a two finger restore, a pull the sim card and try again, face the east and say please three times, but still the iphone doesnt see the wifi networks.
Apple genius here says hardware problem but why from tethering ?
any suggestions? beyond the $200 apple trade in?

I chose the forget this network option to a network I would now like to choose. However, it is not listed. How do I get the iPhone to see the network again so I can choose to connect?

My iPhone 3gs wont join the WiFi network in my local pub. Other people with iPhones dont have this problem, but it turns out that none of those is a 3GS model. This network has WPA security. Whenever I try to join it, it says I entered the wrong password. But I am definitely entering the correct password.

Help! My Iphone doesnt show my wifi network user/ID. I check my adapter and its on. The wifi on my iphone is on, but I cant find my wifi network in the networks.
Can anyone help? EDGE is working fine for me, but I want to go a bit faster when I an at Home and connect to my macs airport. Do I have to have a airport base station to accomplish this? My IPhone is reconizing my mac, but I keep getting unable to join the network mynames iMAC G5. I am getting a strong signal (from the airport drop-down menu) and I have use interference robustness turned on, but still unable to connect. Any advice? Thanks

Is there a way to tell the iPhone to Forget this Network for a network you havent connected to?
Or perhaps I should phrase the question differently: Is there a way to keep asking me if I want to join networks in general, but stop asking me about thus-and-so network in particular?

Because of the help I have been getting from these forums I felt compelled to post a SOLUTION to a problem I had experienced but had not found the answer. I have a WIRELESS NETWORK available for my iPhone to access but it would briefly see the wifi and then go to the EDGE network. The wifi was password (WEP Key) protected and I had previously tried all four of the keys generated by my router. Finally, after trying MANY things, I found the solution also through a discussion with an Apple Care representative.
My problem was while my phone was seeing the router through the wifi network, it could not connect because (and this is the simple part) the passwords to the wireless router are CASE SENSITIVE!!! ( I finally figured this out on my own) So, if you have your WEP keys, which include numbers and letters, make sure you CAP the letters when you type in the letters because they are all upper case on my security and I would think universally. So, when I went back into my iPhone, I made the phone forget the network, made it then find the wifi network again and then when it asked for the password (which is the WEP key) I took great care in typing in the key ensuring that all alpha letters were UPPER CASE. Immediately after I typed this into the iPhone with great care, the iPhone found the network no problem. Now, what happens is when the phone goes to sleep, it wakes back up, goes to edge and then finds wifi and goes to the wifi and stays there!
Also, when typing in the WEP keys or password as requested on your iPhone, make sure you are hitting the right keys on your phone, if you have big fingers this can be tricky so make sure when you hit the letter that you visually see the right letter coming up because in the type line of course, you are just getting dots to represent the letter you are typing. Hope this is some help to someone out there!

This issue is probably seen at some other commercial locations as well. Both my wife and I tried to connect our phones to this network at the restaurant. In settings it showed the network which we selected. There was no indication of any password protection. In settings it then showed us as connected however we never got the wifi symbol to pop up and replace the 3G symbol at the top of the screen. I tried turning off 3G and momentarily while the phone was switching to Edge the wifi symbol popped in but that only lasted a second till the other network was acquired. No log in screen ever popped up although Im assuming there must be something that has to be entered to access their wifi. Going to a Safari site was always done through the cell network.
We dont have any issues with most of the locations we access wifi - Starbucks, other coffee shops, Panera, etc. Just curious about this because one day I may have my iPad at this restaurant and would want to get on their network. Any ideas?

How can I be sure that my iphone is using the wifi network when I am surfing online and not the 3G service from the network provider?
Does the phone automatically block the 3G and uses the wifi or what?

I have been charged large amounts of data usage on my Iphone while it was on wifi. Went through several session with AT&T and they had me replace the sim card and when that did not fix the problem, they advised me that the phone itself was bad and needed to be replaced. It is an Iphone 4 that Ive had for about 2 years. Does this seem like a likely issue, or is it just AT&T making up excuses for overcharging me?
i heard that you can use your ipone 3gs to create a wireless network that which you can join with another device and youll be connected to the internet... if so how is it done?

This is basic question but Im not quite sure about using Edge network and WiFi network on my iPhone.
Mostly, I set
WiFi onAsk to join networks on
So, always available WiFi networks come up when I use my iPhone. But I usually cancel to use it and just use iPhone on Edge network.(feel like internet is slow.)
Do I need to register or sign-up whenever I use Wi Fi network?
And if I see lock sign with Wi Fi network, do I need to know their password? Do I need to join their WiFi network and they charge fee?
Thanks in advance for help!

Normally, when my iPhone goes on standby, it would disconnect from my home WiFi network. When I turn it on by pressing the home button, often itd take a few seconds to reconnect to the WiFi network, but it does. Sometimes, Id have to manually turn off and turn back on the WiFi to reconnect with the network. Thats not the problem though.
The problem is that, and this just started happening TODAY, after it comes out of standby, the iPhone would reconnect to the network but after a few seconds, the WiFi icon would change back to an EDGE icon. Even when theres a check mark next to network name and full reception (on the WiFi), Id only get the Edge or 3G connectivity, as shown by the icon next to AT&T up top and using Safari/Mail. After over a minute or so, the WiFi icon would reappear and Id again have WiFi connectivity.
Is this normal? I am concerned because this just started happening today. Normally, the iPhone would reconnect with the WiFi network automatically and stay connected until it goes back on standby.
I am using a Linksys WRT110 router. I dont have any problem with my laptop. The router is located in the room across the hallway. The router uses WPA2 encryption and the SSID is hidden. I have connected to the WiFi network before. I have turned off the iPhone and turned it back on.
Should I take this to an Apple store to get it looked at? I am going on a trip overseas soon and want to take care of this before I leave.

My iPhone 3G will see numerous secure and unsecure networks. ATTWIFI as well as the WiFi network I have at my home. I have in the past been able to connect to each of these as well as others. Without a significant event happening to the iPhone I am no longer able to join any network. I am not using the Other network option to try to join the network. For my personal network I have even removed the encryption and tried to connect with no luck.
To troubleshoot the issue I have reset my Network Settings to no avail. I have also done a System Restore on the iPhone and still not able to connect to the SSID that shows up in the available networks. I still believe that this is a settings issue but do not know where to check next.

After iPhone update 2.1 now at least I can get mails thru the GSM network using EDGE (before nothing really worked). But if I turn on the wireless network feature on the iPhone no more messages and mail-updates are coming in my iPhone even if it shows best connectivity. No difference between POP and MAC accounts. And the used WIFI network is my pure Apple Airport Extreme/Express network.
If I want to get messages thru the WIFI I have to turn off the iPhone and turn it back again. Then for a short period (one load?) the mails are coming in.
Or I can switch of the WIFI on the iPhone and wait for EDGE. And then the mails are coming in too. This feature works fine since 2.1 - but costs more because of using the GSM network.
By the way I have several WIFIs in different locations. And I have recognized, that all of these LANs start having problems with internet-access of the related mac-computers if one iPhone is joining the network too. So I had to turn off the iPhone, bring down and up again the WIFI and then at least the macs came back to the internet.
Or does mobile me with its push-feature still not work properly?
Any ideas? Thanks.
