PROBLEM SOLVED FOR ME ALLHAMDULILLAH

After sending my phone to Germany , cannot get replacement from Apple. Today i was in the service in my town and afer detaching motherboard , guy spotted disconnected little tiny resistor from inside side of motherboard. Any way after he is connect this little resistor and check all other connecters set up my iphone and afer many days with crappy wifi i have 3 bars and dont need sitting next to router.

My advice. For you who are living near Apple store and you buy your iphone in this country (Apple dont have international warranty ) go and get replacement......

BUT all of you who are like me livin in crappy country without apple store. go to respectabile service and check all conections bcs THIS IS HARDWARE PROBLEM ......

(I was talking about poor wifi range )

GOOD LUCK FOR ALL OF YOU FOLKS

I have the same exact problem for like a year I'm using 3G the whole time. I tried everything but no way. There's no apple store in my country too :/ I've given my iphone to an expert and he told me that everything looks good inside the phone. Anyone willing to help?

Your phone is still under warranty. I would recommend talking to Apple to have them fix it or get a replacement. It does sound like a hardware issue. Has the phone been dropped?
