    Already tried putting my mom's 4s on the fridge (the heck?). Also tried resetting network settings, updated to latest update but no luck. Wifi either grayed-out or unable to see available wifi networks. Anyone experiencing this?

    I've only tried updating to the latest version but not completely restored everything. I'll try this later.
