    Welcome to iPad Forums.

    Have you tried resetting network settings? To do so, go to Settings>General>>Reset>Reset Network Settings. This won't delete any data but you will have to re enter passwords for sites that normally remember you.

    I've deleted the other thread you started on this same topic as duplicate posts can confuse any resulting conversation, making it hard to follow as well as being against our rules.

    Have you tried resetting the WiFi router?

    It's possible that the WiFi cable, connections, or antenna were damaged during the repair. Maybe the phone shop has an especially powerful WiFi router and your iPad is still able to connect when it won't connect to WiFi at other locations.

    When you had the iPad in for repair, was a full diagnostic done? If not, you could have one done at the Genius Bar at the nearest Apple Store. This would tell if there were any hardware or firmware issues causing the WiFi connection problems.

    Ok, this is pure guess. Was the phone shop wi-fi network open (no password) and are the other networks you are trying to connect to secure (you need a password)?

    If so, you need to make sure you choose the right security protocol when connecting for the first time. Almost all private networks use WPA2. If you chose the wrong one on the first attempt, you need to forget that network and try to connect again.

    Without more details, that's all I can think of.
