Why does my iPhone say "No Service"???

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 :(

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.

Hundreds?%0D %0D 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.

by Anonymousreply 504/02/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 604/02/2011

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?

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 2104/03/2011

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.

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. Sent from my iPhone.

According to the AT&T message boards, no AT&T does not allow users to read their text messages online

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?

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][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.

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 5105/16/2012

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?

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)

by Anonymousreply 5406/08/2012

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.

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.

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.
