iPHONE 5 WiFi Issues
There are limited circumstances where iPhone 5 users are experiencing slow speeds or intermittent service when connected to Wi-Fi. There are two fixes that might help.
1. Entering manual DNS settings has been reported to help. Navigate to Settings -> Wi-Fi and touch the blue arrow next to your connected Wi-Fi network. Touch DNS and enter Google's DNS server address (either 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206).
2. Router compatibility issues could mean that WPA2 Personal W-Fi security is causing the problem. Switching to WEP security or removing password security altogether can improve Wi-Fi speeds and connectivity.

5.Resolve iPhone Visual Voicemail Problem
Please run the below diagnostics before confirming the Visual Voicemail issue
Upgrade latest iOS : Use iTunes to revise your iPhone to the latest edition of iOS.
Cellular Connectivity : Ensure you have good cellular network connection. You can verify it by making and receiving phone calls.
Voice Mailbox Setup : Now try dialing your phone number from your iPhone to make sure your voice mailbox is set up properly. If this fails try resetting your network settings by tapping Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network
Settings : If the issue is still not resolved, then there is a possibility that the issue is not specific to your device. This could be due to the way your account has been set with your carrier.
Resetting your Voicemail Pin
Try resetting your voicemail pin with your carrier and then try activating the same through your phone.
For instance: If your carrier is AT&T then login to the AT&T website, choose your model. Choose to reset the voicemail option appearing on the column on the right hand side. Select submit if the website prompts you to reset the pin/password. One should receive a text saying that the password has been reset to your phone number in a text message.
Please note that the new iPhones are required to receive a voicemail or two for the visual voice mail to become active.
Call yourself from your phone. Post one ring, you’ll hear your voicemail. Leave yourself a communication. Verify the voicemail by clicking the voicemail icon. Check if it gives you the password/pin prompt If not prompted, make a few more tries. It will prompt you with the option.
(NOTE: The voicemail password is the pin with your Carrier, and NOT the password for the Apple ID. Once you enter the carrier PIN, return to the voicemail tab and the visual voicemail can be seen online.
If all fails, then in most cases, restoring the iPhone option works. At times you may encounter an error. In this case when trying to restore your phone in iTunes, you may see the following message followed by an error code 1601 or 1602: The iphone could not be restored. An unknown error occurred.
Solution: Completely remove iTunes and Apple Mobile Device support and then reinstall iTunes 7.5 or higher to reset your voice mail and you are good to go.

9.iOS 6.1.3 Update on iPhone 5 Problems of Battery Life Getting Drenched
Come Spring and every major Smartphone manufacture is launching it’s latest baby’s in the market, such as the Apple iPhone 5 with iOS 6.1.3 update. After this update has been carried out, customers are queuing up to multiple web forums and participating in poles, to warn others about the cons of an iPhone 5 with iOS 6.1.3 update.
As per the reports received from the various above mentioned portals, a newbie might halt for a moment before finalizing the deal. Even an iPhone 4S with a 32 GB memory is dying out in few minutes, even if the usages are too minimal.
Various forums are now discussing on this major issue from Apple. Even if, not all the iPhone sets faced issues like this, customers are still furious about the sudden drop in power, even the battery was fully charged.
There are some tips that are to be followed, in order to summarise, whether it was a manufacturing or defect due to bugs in the update or something else. Check by using up the entire battery, empty it so that it completely turns off automatically. Once it is done, you again fully charge the battery and start using to see the changes, otherwise shut down the entire automatic internet based applications that run round the clock.
In case none of the above works, then you have fallen victim to the battery drainage problem of Apple iPhone 5 iOS 6.1.3 update.
For some people it might relate to overuse of iCloud on their Smartphone. Usually extensive use of internet based application drain out the battery faster, but without that it should not happen. The updates need to be done using iTunes, so that there would be no hassle in using the Apple iPhone iOS with great ease. If the problem persists you need to rush to the Apple support centre.
10.Steve Jobs solves iPhone 4 reception problems: 'don't hold it that way'
Apple has issued official guidance - and its chief executive Steve Jobs has issued unofficial guidance - on how to avoid the widely-noted reception problems with the new iPhone 4 when held from below: don't hold it that way.
The cause has been narrowed down to a circuit being formed when the skin bridges the gap between the left and bottom antennas that form the phone's outer stainless steel bezel: depending on the conductance of the skin, it can make the phone reception drop off dramatically.
Emailed by the website Ars Technica about the problem, Jobs responded in his normal terse manner: "Just avoid holding it in that way," he wrote - a response from Jobs that was received by a number of gadget review sites and customers in the US.
Or, in Apple's official statement - which is only being passed out to news organisations which ask for a statement on the problem, rather than sent out (as happens with iPad or iPhone sales figures): "Gripping any phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna performance with certain places being worse than others depending on the placement of the antennas. This is a fact of life for every wireless phone. If you ever experience this on your Phone 4, avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases."
The problem emerged within hours of the first iPhone 4 devices being delivered to customers in the US, with dozens posting videos to YouTube showing mobile reception dropping off dramatically when they picked up the phone. Some users wondered why Apple had not spotted the problem during its testing of the iPhone 4 before its launch, and wondered whether the £25 "bumpers" that Apple sells to go around the casing - and protect the metal antennas - was an implicit acknowledgement of the problem. Apple had no comment on Friday on whether it had discovered the problem during testing, or only after the phone went on sale.
Spencer Web, an antenna engineer with Antennasys, notes in a blog post that antennas for mobile phones are generally placed at the bottom of the phone, in order to keep the radiative parts of the phone as far away from the user's head as possible. In the US the Federal Communications Commission measures the output of a phone, and the amount of non-ionising radiation given off, in specific tests - but Web says that those would not have picked up the problem: "when the FCC tests are run, the head is required to be in the vicinity of the phone. But, the hand is not!"
He added: "The antenna structure for the cell phone is still down at the bottom (I won't address the WiFi nor GPS antennas in this blog entry). The iPhone 4 has two symmetrical slots in the stainless frame. If you short these slots, or cover them with your hand, the antenna performance will suffer (see this video I found on YouTube). There is no way around this, it's a design compromise that is forced by the requirements of the FCC, AT&T, Apple's marketing department and Apple's industrial designers, to name a few."
There is some speculation that the problem only occurs on some phones because the antennas are usually covered with a clear finishing solution; if the finish did not cover them properly the phone might be more liable to the problem.
Meanwhile iPhone 4 users are developing their own solutions - which range from the use of duct or masking tape on the bottom edge, painting clear nail varnish over the gap, buying cases to cover the sides of the phone, or - the most expensive option - buying Apple's "bumpers" which cover the edge of the phone.
Meanwhile another problem has appeared on some of the new models: yellow discoloration under the screen. According to one suggestion, this is due to a chemical used in the fixing process that joins the touchscreen to the glass above it and will fade in a few days. That remains to be seen.
