mine is 4s with MD234C
it cant keep the signal more than 1 minute, i hav to play with it to retreive the signal again...
my country Lebanon, with MTC touch carrier, zain...
i did what i hav to do: 9A406
then nothing improved, the reception same weakness...
i think apple should specify the antennas that should the 3G and the signal use respectively so they wouldnt confuse again...
we are waiting the reply
NOTE: THE OTHER CARRIER IN LEBANON "ALFA" IS WORKING BETTER...THEY TOLD ME BECAUSE THEY HAVE AN EARLIER SYSTEM...OLDER ONE, SO THE SIM CAN DO ITS JOB...
Apple told me that it is something between iPhone and Operator´s Network.
It´s OK, but to me its a SIM card failure (it is between iPhone and operator´s Network), but not a Network problem. Because a lot of people here bought his iPhone in a Roaming situation and the phone wasn´t working on that network too. Again..., its a SIM card failure. Apple probaly knows it and is trying to get some time so release some update to fix it.
I feel like my new 4s works better, I've restarted it "only" twice today instead of 6-10 times a day.
but I don't know if I'm unlucky or "cursed", because my new 4S have another problem, I cannot activate Facetime and iMessage. Everytime I restart my phone it send the sms to activate and then "activation failure". I'v restored (again) my phone, but I still cannot activate it...
I'm really fed up with this iPhone. I think it's my last iPhone. At 630€,you expect to have more reliable stuff.
Users in Brazil to contact me through facebook. The thing is far more serious and I had to enter the Procon and still have the problem of yellow screen

I bought my 4S from Australia. Brought it to Cambodia. Activate it here and it has been giving me the same problem describe in this forum. I was fed up. Ask a friend brought it back to Aust to exchange it in Apple store. Though before that I let my friend use Aust sim card for a few days to see if it works ok. And it works fine for the entire week. No drop call no sim card failure! I don't understand! Now I'm on my 2nd 4s and it works in Cambodia perfectly. Same bloody sim card!!
My name is Pedro and I'm also from Brazil.. I went to USA and bought a new iPhone 4S UNLOCKED.
I came to Brazil and I had the same problem that everyone over here. I use TIM. I called the company several times and nothing changed. I was was losing the signal and I coudn't make any calls.
Frist I thought the problem was with my iPhone, them I tried to use another company called OI and it worked fine.
Then I was looking at the internet and I found this: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4148
So I pluged my iphone at my computer and I followed all steps. FINALLY its working perfect now (even with TIM)
I'm glad I have no problems anymore with my iPhone 4s and I hope everybody can fix their phones.
if you do it and it works, please let everybody know.
