HI guys, especially those who might have still as a relic, or had iPhones 4S: I came from a 4S, which lasted with me a year; it's now my Dad's, but I'd like to share with you'll what happened during this year, hoping maybe I could shed some light: The 4S started out great! Everything ran smoothly, upon the update all the way from iOS7.1.1 to 9.1. Starting maybe a month and a half after I got it, all of a sudden, it started making this loud hissing noise all of a sudden; so loud that VO couldn't be heard over the static! Generally the two or three times this happened over the coming months, turning the 4S off/on made the phone run as usual.
OK so let's go to maybe April or May: the cable company from which we get Internet was doing maintance on the Internet itself, thus when I'd get no Internet through WiFi on my 4S I didn't think much of it, however things started getting weird when supposedly the Internet got fixed, and here on my Laptop WiFi and Internet never failed afterwards! while on my 4S I got it but it was very intermitent; I went to visit my paternal grandmother, and when I didn't get WiFi on my 4S, now that's when I really started worrying! Sometimes I'd regain the use of the WiFi antenna especially upon restoring of updating iOS, but the joy only lasted for maybe a day and a half, after which no WiFi! having to rely on my Data plan, thus hardly using the 4S during the last months i had it.
What might have caused the static sound, and the WiFi antenna failure? Maybe the two or three accidental drops of the phone, aside from the vulnerability of which I heard a lot in its time of the 4S problems with the WiFi antenna adding up? Did any of you guys have these experiences with your 4S ever?
