I picked up an iPhone in sept and all was well... I didnt have a computer until a week ago so it was my primary ability to reach the net...

Well now that I have a computer i synched the iPhone etc, installed updates and since that my phone wont connect to any wifi network... It doesnt even find any wifi networks... what gives? I am sitting here looking at a full wifi signal on my MB and when I open up settings on my phone it doesnt find anything. I have heard that mac will suck the wifi from other devices, so I tried to hit the signal at work today and still nothing

did I do something or is my phone broken... Its still under warranty...

Thanks
