    Don't cover the left hand side of an iPhone entirely, also your antenna could be damaged.

    I don't think its damaged since it is new and the wifi works fine, just doesn't go very far(barely reaches my room which is like an eight meter distance)
    I do have a cover over it, and I'll remember the left hand side thingy next time.

    Not sure what could be causing your issue besides a faulty antenna.

    My 4S works fine up to about 15 meters only if I have no interference.


    an alternate account.

    You should take it to the Apple store and ask. They usually help.

    My two year old iPhone 4 sometime wouldn't even get signal at like 20-25 feet distance. It's either your phone has a malfunctioning anthena or it's your router box.
