A defective iPhone 5 (Model: MD638LL/A), seen on the right side of the screen, looses connectivity to a wireless router after moving back just 40ft. The defective phone does however stays connected to a WIFI network if it is 15 feet or less from the router. A working iPhone 5, seen on the left, is shown as a comparison, & successfully connects despite the 40ft distance from the router.

After unsuccessfully attempting to fix the defective iPhone 5 by "reseting network setting" & updating the software to iOS 6.1, I proceeded to the "Genius Bar" at my local Apple store. The defective phone surprisingly worked just fine when connecting to the apple store WIFI. An exchange for a new phone could not be given due to the fact that the iPhone 5 appeared to be working fine. The WIFI connectivity issue persisted when arriving home. The same connectivity issues occur on public WIFI networks, other than at the apple store.

The working iPhone was purchased from an AT&T store during the iPhone 5 release. The defective iPhone was purchased from the same AT&T store in December 2012 (Model: MD638LL/A), (Modem Firmware: 3.04.25)
