my wifi doesn't connect anymore. I know its not my router because my friends iphone can connect as well as all of the other things in my house that use wifi. Somtimes (like once a day) it will connect for a minute or two but then it will be gone. I've reset my phone, reset my network settings, etc. I think I need to replace my wifi antenna but I want that to be the last option. I don't really want to open up the phone. has anyone else had this happen or replaced their wifi antenna? let me know your thoughts/suggestions.

I had something like that and I restored my phone as a new phone and did not use a back-up. Fixed my problem but was took a couple hours once I downloaded all my programs. No idea what the cause was but it went away.

Have you tried resetting your router?

It it allowing you to turn the wifi on and off or is it greyed out?

I'll be honest, I've never jail broken my phone so I'm not the right person to answer that question. I know you can back up the pictures/music and whatnot but I've got no other advice past that.
