Currently Being ModeratedNov 11, 2010 5:38 AM (in response to nigelray12)Simple bump to keep this major problem front page. I've given apple alot of my money (my third Iphone) and I would actually like to have service for calls. Can anyone link an article where it at least says they are working on a fix?iOS 4

Currently Being ModeratedNov 19, 2010 12:17 PM (in response to chris5789)I dont think Apple understands how serious this issue is. We shouldn't be looking for information on how Apple will solve this. They should fix the issue for us. I have had the same problem as the rest in this thread for a week, and I am leaving iPhone all together. It is simply put horrible and completly unacceptable for a _mobile phone_ to have issues like that. You should never be expected to hacks, workarounds or upgrades for the basic phone features to work. Never. That just have to work, and it doesn't on my iPhone.
I have an iPhone through work, so I haven't paid for it my self, thank god, but I am handing it in and demanding a droid... There's no alternative, reallyiOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedNov 20, 2010 4:29 PM (in response to Larry Moe)It is so silly how apple screws up a stable phone platform like the 3GS by releasing a firmware upgrade meant to fix reception problems!!!!
I suddenly had same issue with mine (officially unlocked & never jail-broken) & eventually realized that enabling 3G radio will put it into searching mode until "no signal" is all what I get. If I disable 3G, it works perfectly but what's the point then!
I thought it might have started cause something inside it broke cause I dropped it multiple times, which made frustrated... But here I find plenty of people facing the exact same problem due to the 4.1 update
Do I hear apple saying to google & others, pls come & take my market share?
They should quickly fix firmware problems, confess about it, or allow downgrade until they fix it if its going to take them ages... Unless they want to keep is waiting for next phase of refresh when iPhone5 is availableiPhone 3GS, iOS 4, + MacBook Pro running OSX 10.6
Currently Being ModeratedNov 24, 2010 12:29 AM (in response to enrysan0)does anybody know if the iOS 4.2 just released fixes this problem?
Am afraid of putting it and go worse with more trouble... lost confidence already

Currently Being ModeratedNov 24, 2010 1:35 AM (in response to MLubbad)Same problem here with 4.2.1 on an iPhone 3GS. Signal strength went from four bars to one bar or "No Service".2010 27" iMac and 17" MBP, iPad, iPhone 3GS, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 24, 2010 1:40 AM (in response to MLubbad)I have updated to 4.2.1 today and will test for a couple of days and report back.iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedNov 24, 2010 5:51 AM (in response to mikesmith123456)Issue still exists after my update!!! spoke to Apple again and they suggested that some piece of sOftware has disrupted the antenna (???!?!?!) and to try a complete reformat and start from scratch thus losing all of my settings/files/saves/call history/messages e.t.c. I cant see that that is a suitable resolution considering the amount of info stored on my phone!iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedNov 24, 2010 1:02 PM (in response to enrysan0)still the same.. 3g with 4.2.1
