[Security] iPhone 4 phones loosing WiFi settings when phone lock

I have a problem in which my iPhone 4 looses WiFi settings when the phone locks after inactivity. Any ideas on what would do that. It is happening on both of our phones.

You can probably tighten with a screwdriver.

It was sarcasm as you said 'loosing' instead of 'losing.' Not very helpful I know.

I have seen my iPhones forget Wi-Fi info for a previously visited hotspot but it has been rare. I just reconnect. I am sorry I don't have a solution for you. Perhaps visit an Apple store for help.

Edit - thinking about this, if it happens to two phones the fault sounds more like the router you're connecting to. If you have the ability, make sure it's running the latest firmware and/or reset the router.

Try changing your WiFi channel on your router to channel 6. I started having a problem today- it was just dropping WiFi after connecting while set to Channel 11. Could be interference from a neighbor's new WiFi router.
