If you're able to do other things that require internet access but still can't open web pages in Safari, the problem is with Safari, not with your connection. (On the other hand, if Safari is fine but some random app is refusing to connect, then that app is the problem, and you should try closing it down and restarting, checking for an update and contacting the app maker's support facility.) Assuming the internet connection really isn't working, we need to find out if the problem is with the Wi Fi, 3G/4G or something else. First of all, are you at home, or in another location which supplies Wi Fi?
Have you entered a password for the local Wi Fi network? Look at the top of your i Phone's screen, on the left: next to the five blobs which show the signal strength and the identity of your network provider, you'll see one of a number of signals indicating how you're currently accessing (or failing to access) the internet.
If it's the familiar 'Wi Fi' icon, with three concentric quarter-circles, then hey presto, you're on Wi Fi.
First of all let's make sure that you really can't access the internet at all.
Try to do this a few different ways: refresh Mail and see if you get any new emails; open Twitter; browse a few listings in the App Store; try to open new web pages in any additional web browsers you've got as well as Safari.
What you will need is the original IPSW Image from Apple or 4.2.1 or 4.3.3 A Custom Restore Image 4.3.3 IPSW if you have lost your own, one is filed here with a prefix of NO_BB so it will preserve your existing baseband.
Get the latest Redsn0w – Red Sn0w — Mac is 0.9.9b7and Windows is 0.9.9b71) Make sure i Tunes is not running.
The first step when fixing a problem is to find out what the problem is.
We need to isolate the malfunctioning part of the equation so we can focus on that.
In this article we explain what to do when the internet isn't working on your i Phone, either via cellular data or Wi-Fi (or occasionally both).
First we try to work out whether the problem lies with 3G/4G or with Wi Fi (most of the time this is obvious) and then we work through the possible solutions for each scenario: we recommend that you follow the advice as it is written, as the steps get slowly more difficult.
1) Launch redsn0w 4) Follow the steps in redsn0w to get the i Phone 3GS into DFU mode which is going to send the screen to black 5) Launch i Tunes, hold the shift/option key whilst clicking on “Restore”, then navigate and choose the custom restore – either your own or the downloaded one that starts with NO_BB (which preserves the existing baseband).
6) Say a prayer 7) You should now boot up to a familiar screen, happy days! 1) Launch redsn0w this time selecting the original Apple restore image – i Phone2,1_4.2.1_8C148a_Restore.ipsw, or i Phone2,1_4.3.3_8J2_and only select the option to “Install Cydia”.
That's happened to me too, what are we supposed to do as I don't understand what they are saying?
