    Hello, I have a iPhone with a sh*ttyass problem.
    This recently started today and it was really random. My wifi has a really weak strength. This didn't happen before i used to be able to see many networks. I jailbroke my friends ipod touch today and checked his wifi and his is perfect, like how mine was earlier today. I have an app that shows wifi info on both and the itouch is getting 88 percent signal while my iphone gets about 20 percent.

    wtffffffff seriously any solutions/help?

    iphone 3G is unlocked and jailbroken.

    Try restoring... If that doesnt help bring your device to an applestore

    Also the ipod's wifi antena is better than the iPhone's so that might be another reason

    Thanks for the replies but i used to be able to get wifi all around my house just like my friends ipod. But this just happened yesterday it only gets even 70 percent RIGHT on top of the router and from a foot away i only get 50%

    You planning on forgetting when you try to get it replaced?

    Up to your chest is what? 3 maybe 4 feet? if so you could have possibly damaged the wifi antena. How is your cell signal? Did it drop also?
