iPhone Wi-Fi/EDGE problems? Reset network settings

If you're experiencing an issue where the iPhone refuses to access network data (Web pages [Safari reports "Safari can't open the page because it can't find the server."], email, Google Maps data, etc.), the fix may be drop-dead simple:

  1. Tap Settings
  2. Tap General
  3. Tap Reset
  4. Tap Reset Network Settings

This will cause your iPhone to restart, and will delete any stored Wi-Fi passwords as well as DNS settings and more. It may, however, restore your ability to join a stubborn wireless network, let you access stalled Web pages, or eliminate issues with EDGE data access that can occur for various reasons.
