Expert:  Viet-Smartphone Tech replied 1 year ago.
Sorry, your reply only just came. When you go to Settings -> Wi-Fi on the iPhone, then does it see your wireless network name? If yes, what happens when you tap / connect to it? Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

The phone is samsung s3 mini when I tap to connect it comes up obtaining ip address

Expert:  Viet-Smartphone Tech replied 1 year ago.
Can you please disconnect the power cord from the BT Home hub device for about 5 minutes, then reconnect.
, then press & hold power on/off button on the samsung phone, then power off, then turn it back on, and try to connect to Wi-Fi again?

Please let me know. Thank you.

Didn't work just the same

Expert:  Viet-Smartphone Tech replied 1 year ago.
Sorry, is the phone able to connect to any other Wi-Fi network name, such as at your neighbor's wireless or at a public wireless?

Are you communicating with me on a windows or mac computer? Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Communicating on windows,there is open networks available can't connect to them either

Expert:  Viet-Smartphone Tech replied 1 year ago.

I'm sorry, it looks like there is Wi-Fi/wireless hardware issue with the new phone; you could have gotten a bad one as it cannot connect to any network name, so it's not a compatibility issue with your BT hub modem. But can you reset the phone to factory setting (Settings -> Backup and Reset -> Factory Data Reset -> Reset Device, or something similar), then we can confirm.
