I was on those forums recently reading the same thing because my girlfriends replacement iPhone 4s fried the wifi right after doing the update (first unit was a year old and had some software glitches but Telus offered to just order a new one from applecare). Anyway since the phone was still under warranty I did not try the freezer trick. She's on her third iPhone 4s now, hope third time is a charm.
