I have the iPhone 4S (AT&T as my provider) and awhile back when I did the software update iOS 5.1.1, I am now running on 4G. Now, I've heard many things about 4G - that it doesn't make your phone load any faster, it's not really 4G, etc. However; even with full bars when I try and run my apps (i.e. Instagram. FaceBook, games, basically anything require an Internet connection), it often "times" out and cannot load the app. I also have trouble sending and receiving e-mails, and text messaging as well as with Safari. I have had to turn off iMessaging because it always fails to send. I'll get error messages saying my connection has timed out, cannot refresh feed, server cannot be reached.. Obviously when I am connected through Wi-Fi, I have no issues but when I am only connected through 4G/Edge. Has anyone ever encountered this problem? Is this a service issue with AT&T or is it my phone that I will need to bring in to Apple to have them check out?
I usually do a reset when I run into this problem. Hold down the home/power button together until you see the appple logo and then release,then wait for the phone to boot back up. then try again.
Thanks for the suggestion, and I realized I forgot to include that I have tried exactly that! I've tried to reset my phone as well as restore it to factory setting hoping there was some glitch and it'd be gone by doing the reboot but nope. It's just frustrating because I can see I have good signal yet my phone isn't working like it should be. Plus, it's not like having the iPhone is cheap!
