I thought it was because I was somewhere where I couldn''t receive service but I''m home now and it still says "No Service" where it used to say "3G". I can''t make any calls at all, the whole thing is bricked. Anyone know why this is happening? I checked my account online and the bill was paid on time. Anyone know where I can check my texts online? I know I must have gotten hundreds of texts and people are wondering why I never texted back. I''m kinda freaking out without my phone. Even posting on DL on my desktop seems like a step backwards. Sorry, you won''t be able to see "Sent from my iPhone" in my posts for a while :(
Hundreds of texts? Mary! No one at the bar is missing you that much!\
Have you tried calling AT&T? Even better, try turning your phone off and on again first. Sometimes it just needs a reset to reconnect to the satellite. If that doesn''t do it your SIM card might have come loose.
OK, maybe not hundreds but definitely dozens. And how do I call AT&T if my phone doesn''t work??? iPhones don''t have removable SIM cards. It''s not a Motorola RAZR for god''s sake.
My, someone thinks much of themselves.
Aghhhh, my posts look so weird without the "Sent from my iPhone". o_0
In your hour of need, OP, I hope this brings you some solace.
Your iPhone does have a SIM card. Look at the top of the phone - there''s a pinhole there on a small cutout. If you stick a pin in the hole it will pop open and you''ll find your SIM card. \
But I wouldn''t recommend that. Call AT&T from your land-line and explain your problem. They can tell you if there''s a problem with service in your area or some other problem with your account. If you don''t have a land-line you''ll have to go to the AT&T store tomorrow.
Do a full reset/restore via iTunes. \
AT&T support does not work late on Saturdays and they''re gone Sundays. That includes online chat. Email a complaint and then phone Monday so they give you credit.
Didn''t someone post a message a few weeks ago about shutting down completely or something like that?
[quote]Call AT&T from your land-line and explain your problem.\
Landline? Why would I have a landline if I have an iPhone? People still have landlines in this day and age??? 0_o And really, I''m supposed to wait til Monday without a phone? How will I get through the weekend? What if someone wanted to have brunch with me tomorrow? o_0\
Posted from my Desktop (sigh)
Turn phone off. %0D\
Wait 30 seconds, put the battery back in and thank me later.
I pray OP is a troll and not really the ''sent from my iphone'' asshole. If that is you, OP, kindly fuck off and die.
[quote]People still have landlines in this day and age???%0D\
Yup. Well, it''s Vonage (VOIP) but at least it gives me a backup.%0D\
R10, I tried turning it off and on and the "No Service" message is still there. I didn''t take out the battery as the iPhone 4 has an internal battery and the case doesn''t open.\
R11, what did I ever do to you? Take the stick out of your ass and YOU kindly fuck off and die. Hey, it''s actually kinda nice to be typing on a physical keyword again. Goes a little faster.
You''ve been deemed too stupid for iPhone service, OP. It''s a new program AT&T just started.
Wait, so the "sent from my iphone" sig has been typed in by the fucking OP all these times? WTF!!!
i assumed it was being automatically generated

R15, it IS automatically generated. Please do try to keep up with this thread. Reading comprehension is not your friend, no?
That''s what you get for buying one of Apple''s overhyped, underpowered, child-slave-labor-built products. And good luck getting it repaired -- Apple will overcharge you again for that, too!
"What if someone wanted to have brunch with me tomorrow?"%0D\
It''s okay, OP, I think that is extremely unlikely!
I rebooted a bunch of times today and it still didn''t work. I booked an appointment online at the Genius Bar but their next available appointment is Tuesday. WTF? What am supposed to do til then? So is there really no way to read your texts online? I know you think I''m exaggerating but they really are piling up.
I''ve never had this happen, OP. Don''t know how to help.\
Post a message on your Facebook letting your friends know your phone isn''t working, and that''s why you haven''t returned their texts.\
Sent from my iPhone.
[quote] What am supposed to do til then? So is there really no way to read your texts online?\
Why don''t you log into your AT&T account and find out?
R23, I already did that and didn''t see any options. It only lets me look at my bill!
You can get online support through the Apple (or AT&T) website. I''ve done it before. You can converse via a chat window with technical support.\

According to the AT&T message boards, no AT&T does not allow users to read their text messages online
Google is your friend OP
OP are you sure that your setting didn''t get changed to wifi and that''s why it says no service? Or did you try changing to wifi if you''re not getting any 3G service?
Get a Mac.
[quote]According to the AT&T message boards, no AT&T does not allow users to read their text messages online\
So when my service comes back will all my missed texts be waiting for me on my phone? Or will they just be lost and I will never see them???\
R27, I tried changing to wifi and back. Where it used to say "WiFi" or "3G" it just now says "No Service".
[quote] So when my service comes back will all my missed texts be waiting for me on my phone? Or will they just be lost and I will never see them???\
They should be still there OP.
Harry suggests a HARD RESET:%0D\
hold both the home and sleep buttons down at the same time%0D\
Did you accidentally put it in airplane mode???\
Sent from my iPhone.
It didn''t happen when daylight saving changed, did it?
You really don''t need service on your iPhone.
Try Hard Reset.
[quote][R15], it IS automatically generated. Please do try to keep up with this thread.\
It most certainly is *not* automatically generated. The "Sent from my iPhone" signature is automatically appended to email messages and that''s it. There is no mechanism for including the signature in other communication formats other than to manually type it, or to paste it from the clipboard.\
The OP is a troll who probably doesn''t even own an iPhone.
OP--You have to pay the bill.
Sweet lord, I hate OP, and all the assholes like him.
Not the OP, but I had that happen to me, and my phone was broken. Apple replaced it.
I''m back in business, baby! Yeah! I finally got my appointment at the Genius Bar and the wonderful guy there fixed it. All he did was turn off my iPhone, wait 5 minutes and then turn it back on again. Genius! Who knew? And yes, I did have literary hundreds of texts waiting for me. How will I get through them all? I can''t believe I made it so many days without my iPhone. It was he''ll without my baby.\

You know OP, you could have done that too.%0D\
This is the dumbest thread in ages.
[quote]I pray OP is a troll \
What with all the smiley faces like this 0_o and all the "Oh I wish my posts said ''sent from my iPhone''" wailing, it''s a safe bet this was a troll.\
Waiting a few days and coming back to say that someone else had to turn it off and on for him, just as others had suggested days ago, was a pretty good touch though. Too bad troll-dar says that wasn''t really the OP.
You people are joking, right?%0D\
I post to the board from my iPhone. No, it doesn''t automatically sign "sent from my iPhone." You have to type "sent from my iphone" yourself for it to appear on a message board.%0D\
[quote] All he did was turn off my iPhone, wait 5 minutes and then turn it back on again. Genius! Who knew? \
All the people on this thread who told you to do the exact same thing knew.\
OP is a complete moron.
OP you sound really stupid and I would never want to meet you.
Use a payphone and call your mates. Breathe.
Not as stupid as someone who joins a discussion 7 months after it's over.
Sent from my Windows Phone
SO r45 waited 7 months to bump this thread to say OP is a moron?
We've got a bumping troll with anger issues.
Lmao that never happen to me it my fathers phone.
My phone is newer than my fathers meaning like it's a iPhone but a different kind.
It's doesn't have the numbers when you charge your phone but doesn't show the numbers.
Like my iPod so this is like my little new iPod anyway yeah try calling AT&T but I recommend talking to Apple if your card is lose AT&T just carries phones for there network.
I came for some insight and help, but this made me laugh. Thanks, and I'll try my best. I actually took it in, it was fixed for 5 min while I was at the AT&T store, then once I got home, everything went back to "No Service." To the store I go again.
i dropped my iphone and then this started happening ot me as well. I tried turning it off and on again a lot but still nothing happened. I have had my Iphone for about 2 years now and didnt mind if it broke, so i thought i may as well try dropping it again and see if anything happened. I did this and then it started working again:) The signal detector or something must have come loose inside and then i just set it straight again or somehting?
My iPhone says no service and I've tried resseting it but it won't work and it charges me for I texts that don't send :( anyone have any free ideas let me know thanks.
Call Apple support and get them to schedule a genius bar appt for you. I got mine the next day when I had a mac problem (and no, I don't pay for Apple Care).
But only do that after you've performed a hard reset. Go to General -->Settings, and the last option at the bottom is Reset. From that menu, start with Network Reset. If that doesn't work, try "Reset All Settings", but ONLY if you've backed up recently. It will restore your phone to its factory state and erase all data, so you'll have to restore everything from your backup (via iCloud or iTunes)
Christ, you people. After all this time?
The SIM card has dislodged, likely because OP and the other poster with the same problem dropped the phone.
Reset the SIM card. Simple insert the end of a small paper clip into the tiny hole at the top of the phone and wait for the top of the SIM card to pop up. Then carefully and gently push the thing back in. Don't take it out. Just pop and push. You can manage that.
You could also have Googled this just like I did when I had the same problem months ago.
I had a problem with "No Service" so I put on a shirt and shoes.
Power off your iPhone, should work in no time.
take the back off the phone remove the battery insert it in your ass hole boil a pot of water drop the phone in it then remove the battery from your ass and swollow it... wait half an hour then thank me later.
emily that is fucking stupid you dum bitch everyone knows its milk you boil not water...

Oh, charlie...I knew if I stuck around DL long enough we'd eventually agree on SOMEthing!
someone with whom you've traded barbs in the past
Not working in sim?
Cell coverage is spotty at its best.
I have an Android 4G phone and when at home I usually get solid 4G service. Then it'll drop to 1x, and then no service depending on weather conditions.
But on the iPhone reseat the SIM and do a hard reboot - oh wait, you can't do a hard reboot on an iPhone.
OP is a snobby bitch. I hope the phone still doesn't have any service.
You have to reactivate or it wont work i have to do that every so often try it
i'am having the same problem !!! And i already did al that!! of course that didn't work it's something abot it was an nlocked phone and when it was updated it's been doing it ever since.
You doesn't even know how to unlock your phone?
No wonder you're in such a mess.
This sometimes happens when one is excessively devoted to texting, at the expense of real life. At that point, the context of one's text messages is evaluated, and service is discontinued if they are deemed inane.
lol what do u mean iphones dont have removable sim cards? yeah they do lol.... but even that dosnt work.
I know this thread is about 2 years old... but there are some stupid comments here. If you don't know how to use the technology in your hand... you probably don't deserve it.
Your bill must be 50 billion dollars.
OH EM EGG OG TAKE A VALIUM!!!!! You frustrated, embarrassed, verbally abused and belittled that poor person!!!! She just asked a question and you left her feeling like a tool.... When actually you are more than a tool!!!! What right do you have to do is come on help forums and harass people??? It clearly shows your heights of Maturity!!! I suggest that the next forum you choose to crash is an anger management one... But better yet a forum that has suggestions how to treat and being a human being!! Shame on you but at the same time feel sorry that you have nothing else to do!!!! You must be a loner, no friends or life to put that much time into a cyber bully.... Now see I wasn't rude or mean when I replied to you... But I'm not done until I say "GET A LIFE LOSER......OH AND DON'T FORGET THAT IF YOUR DINK CAN REACH YOURSELF ....GO FUCK YOURSELF !!!!!!!!!!!
i like pie :}
