I went to pick my cousin up from school and while i was at the school all networking stopped working. I cant send or receive messages, my wifi doesn't work even tho it says I'm connected. I've reset my connection settings and I updated from 8.0 to 8.0.2 and still nothing.

I know this is a shot in the dark, but any chance you see a little white airplane on the upper left-hand corner of the screen?

I had that happen with my iPhone 6+ couple of times now. Lost connectivity and what I ended up having to do was turn on airplane mode and turn it back off and then Wi-Fi will work for a while. Eventually it would slow way down and stop again and I have to switch to Airplane mode again. I will try a restore this weekend and see if that fixes it.

One bug that I've noticed on every iPhone that I've ever had was -when email is syncing (many times) nothing else that requires data will work. If I happen to lose signal during this bug (such as in poor reception area) my data will not work at all until a reboot.

I use the speed test tool and you can tell when the connection is shutting down because you get responses like this from yesterday morning. On LTE good speed but on wifi terrible. Airplane mode for a second or two and then great speeds again:

You're the only one I've seen using
kB/s rather than Mbps. Most use
Mbps. Is there a reason you use kB/s? Just curious.

No particular reason. Personal preference only mainly because I am old as heck and have used kB/s as a measurement ever since my 2400 baud modem days and saving programs on paper tape held together with rubber bands.

My very first computer was a Timex Sinclair 2000. Ran a cheap version of basic and when you turned it off your program was gone. Then years later in the Army in Germany I got an Apple IIC when they came out new. That was so modern and fast. External floppy drive. Had its own monitor. Spent months playing Bards Tale with gorgeous 4 color graphics. Then years later I took the leep to PC and got a 4.7 megahertz XT computer for $1800 that had a turbo button. That baby would speed up to a whopping 10 Megahertz when pushed. I was then envy of all and then with my 10MB Hd (another $1,400), I knew I had a computer to last me my whole life. Ha ha, was I ever wrong.
